Going Bananas: Bernhard Willhelm Spring 2016

For Spring, Bernhard Willhelm reimagines the fateful fruit shared by Adam and Eve, except instead of an apple the two partake in, it’s a banana. Then Adam pours toffee sauce all over Eve. Talk about sinful!

Quick-witted and always the first to head for the gutter, Willhelm is fully aware of the sexual connotations afforded by the banana, whether its long or short, curvy or straight, green or yellow. The collection of 69 unisex looks offers an array of possibilities or positions.

Willhelm has even provided a little a sex joke — “Broccoli: I look like a tree. Walnut: I look like a brain. Mushroom: I look like an umbrella. Banana: Dude! Change the topic.”
