The high-gloss, exquisitely crafted world of luxury fashion – from runway, fashion campaigns to stores – is all about what’s 200L8, what’s latest & the whopping price-tags. If you’re too jaded with your favorite luxury brands taking-themselves-too-seriously-and-artistically on instagram, we at LH bring some comic relief to your obsessive scrolling. Here’s a list of 5 accounts to hit follow on! Scroll through funny fashion memes and tongue-in-cheek takes on the world of runway and lookbooks.
Note : All images have been sourced from the respective Instagram accounts.
Fashion weeks are ooh-aahed over season after season. The surreal runway sets are places worth of being listed as must-see destinations on Conde Nast. Make-up and hair is something we’d ever hardly recreate in real life. All the talk about the creative director’s artistic vision. Even reading and decoding the media coverage of each show seems to be an artistic pursuit in itself (much like understanding hip-hop song lyrics). So we have an Instagram account that lifts this runway imagery & places it in environs that are a complete opposite of high-fashion! If you thought la vie quotidienne (everyday life) couldn’t be edgy, that over-stylized runway fashion couldn’t be humorously plebeian, then give your eyes a break. This account juxtaposes the two and gives you a hilarious concoction.
A Maison Margiela model running out of a Black Friday sale. Balenciaga crocs floating while Noah and Allie take a romantic boat ride? You’ve got it! Your fashionista imagination is in for one amusing ride.

Man Repeller is no new kid on the block. Started when blogging was the coolest thing to do by Leandra Medine, Man Repeller has a very specific & comical take on high fashion. Fashion women love but men hate (read: OTT dressing, balloon sleeves, overalls, wide-legged pants, Comme Des Garcons silhouette, head turbans and manly brogues) and the truth about fashion from impractical trends to ridiculous fashion pairings. This is where the world is run by women for other women, not for men. Sit with your legs spread wide or wear overalls if that’s how you want to roll. Founder Leandra Medine has got your back.
Really! Leandra’s whacky thought makes us actually want to try tube-tops as belts and skirts!!
Twinning is winning, but not when designers drop designs that look like rip-offs from other luxury brands / designers. Diet Prada exposes brands, designers, fashion magazines and campaigns copying / stealing designs & creative concepts. Diet Prada does a thorough trawl of the fashion world and there’s very little that escapes their watchful eyes. Snarky, merciless, unforgiving but much needed. Calling out major fashion rip-offs and elite controversies within the fashion industry, follow for all that bling Bling, Bang Bang action! (P.S. We too did a little expose of our own being huge fans of this account.) The latest one to bite the Diet dust is Dior accused of copying Indian label People Tree’s motifs!
Diet Prada recently featured the Dior dress that looked quite a close copy of India-label People Tree’s block print motif
This post by Diet Prada caused quite a stir! Everyone thought this collab was for real and reposted it, even Hypebeast, when all it was was a Chinese fake merch on Alibaba!!
A modern-day celeb cry – Meme me like one of your French girls, Freddie Smithson. The ultimate fashion spoof account, Freddiemade serves photoshopping spectacle one post at a time. Gluing two completely unrelated worlds, each post is WhatsApp-profile-picture worthy. At his wackiest high were the Queen and Rihanna mashups, which were a hit and reposted by Rihanna herself. This one is unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Let’s face it whether we should all be feminists or not, we are all logo-maniacs. Love at first sight is something we have all experienced with those little interlocked GG of Gucci and LV’s monogram. . Sporting them is everything if you are going to spend so much money. But here’s an account that has some fun with our beloved and lusted-after logos & monograms to create brain-teasing graphics and creatives. Why so serious? can easily be termed the tagline of this account.
Trump & Supreme? Yeah, right!
So follow these accounts to keep up with the world of high-fashion yet give your insta-feed a funny break!
May the force be with you!
