Planking goes High Fashion


If you are like me and you listen to a lot of Studio Brussels or if you haven’t have been living under a rock then you are going to have heard of Planking. In case you are completely out of the loop, planking is laying as stiff as possible at a completely random place.  For some reason I always have to chuckle when I see a planking picture. The complete uselessness of this activity just does it for me. For me it began with the very handsome Jared Followil (of The Kings of Leon) and his twitter account.

However, now planking has officially gone high fashion. As this has become such a worldwide phenomenon, the photographer David Toro decided to do an editorial for Dis Magazine. Random locations and high fashion are the key elements here and it absolutely works. However, it might not be the best way to sell clothes!

I’m so excited to let you know that I’ve started a new blog. You can find me on Rooftop Antics. See you there!
