Another day, another obscure Instagram trend to marvel at. Today’s installment finds us ogling at a new and strange trend which places streetwear notables in truly, truly gigantic bubble coats and shoes.
While the style trend is still young – just beginning with the onslaught of unconventional looks last week – it’s catching on quick thanks to the curiously quirky minds of @itsmaysmemes and @luxormotor.
The two began photoshopping and publishing images to Instagram which find the likes of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, ASAP Rocky, Luka Sabbat and more donning surreal-sized jackets and shoes from designers such as Balenciaga and Moncler. The images are further accented by the model’s comically nonchalant demeanor while literally consumed in their fit.
The trend is somewhat of a joke-ish homage to the IRL trend taking place in streetwear culture currently, which finds practitioners sporting larger-than-life silhouettes and layered looks. These looks can be seen on Balenciaga runways or dispersed through labels such as Vetements as well.
See below for some of our favorite adaptations of this quirky trend to hit the web.
