THE BLONDS F/W 2016

A CONFECTIONERY COLLECTION

David and Phillipe Blond served us major Alice in Wonderland realness for their Fall/Winter 2106 show. Starting with a backdrop of gigantic, trippy, colorful flowers, models walked the runway in classic Blonds staples, including their trademark corsets, bodysuits and skin-tight gowns. The blue pot leaf party dress with petticoat was fun, and the white and pink mini dress with “eat me” appliqués, made us think of delicious birthday cake. We also craved the glittery pink babydoll dress that resembled a giant cupcake. And then there were sequins, lots and lots of sequins, including the full length black puff parka, a striped matching catsuit and bomber, and many more. Hair was worn in pink dreadlock buns with netting. How genius was that? And we saw the fantastic MAC makeup designed by the genius known as Kabuki. It was a very confectionery collection, and it made us hungry for more Blonds! Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://theblonds.nyc

FUTURE FANTASTIC

Congratulations to threeASFOUR. Celebrating their ten year anniversary as a design trio, they sent an incredible intergalactic collection down the runway for New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016. Anybody who know’s anything about fashion or was part of the New York downtown scene back in the late 90’s, remembers their spacey, circular “donut” shaped bags that were seen at the coolest underground clubs and art parties. At that time they had four members and were named Asfour. Since those times they have grown into something that is even more avant-garde  astounding. They are the three extremely innovative designers behind threeASFOUR, known as Gabi Asfour, Angela Donhauser and Adi Gil. Museums from all over the world collect their pieces. And this year they won the highly coveted National Design Award for Fashion Design from Cooper Hewitt.

Everything in this collection was phenomenal. However, the most incredible pieces were the space-age creations that consisted of crystals, rocks and minerals on bodices. Heavy? Yes, but they were very much worth the weight! Our favorite from that series was the one shouldered dress adorned with crystal angular shards. And then, there was the fantastic 3-D printed digital white dress that opened the show, which was an elaborate art object unto itself. The more “basic” or wearable pieces were really no less incredible in their simplicity and modernness. This entire fantasy was set against fabulous 3-D projections by video artist Alex Czetwertynski. The future remains extremely bright for these visionary designers. And we look forward to another ten years. Photography Alexander Thompson. http://threeasfour.com
