It's always fun when a designer shakes up the usual catwalk routine, and that is exactly what Fam Irvoll did with You Only Live Once, sending a bunch of street cast kids with attitude down the catwalk to throw some serious shapes for the photographers. Girls wore lip liner with NYC club kid cornrows, tall beanies and kiss curls, the words YOLO, LOL and YO attached in speech bubbles at their waists, knees and ankles. Boys wore backwards baseball caps on top of their 90s curtains, plastic eyeball earrings swinging from their ears.
