Chinese designer Xander Zhou’s collection featured a male model with a fake bump on show, wearing jeans and a white T-shirt with the words “New World Baby”.


“We’re prepared to welcome a future of male pregnancy,” the designer said in an Instagram post.

Zhou’s show also featured one of the more improbable-looking designs of all the collections – an elaborate raincoat with six sleeves arranged in a star formation.

Quite a lot has been going on:

Male models flaunt ‘pregnant’ bellies on the runway

Last weekend Chinese designer Xander Zhou sent male models down the London fashion week men’s runway with an unusual accessory: prosthetic pregnancy bellies.

Their bizarro bumps were highlighted by equally wacky fashions, including a baby pink tracksuit with a matching towel flung around one model’s neck. Another catwalker’s cropped T-shirt read “New World Baby.”

Confused? Don’t look to the brand’s Instagram page for clarification. “At Supernatural, Extraterrestrial & Co., we’re prepared to welcome a future of male pregnancy,” says one post. Hmm.
