THE BLONDS

FALL 2017

We first met the Blonds years back, when they sold their denim line to edgy downtown retailer Patricia Field. They certainly progressed and show their fabulous collections on the runway season after season, their shows always attended by the most famous glitterati of the New York City downtown scene. But beyond that, what truly amazes us is the intricacy of each piece of clothing that we luckily get to see backstage before it hits the runway, something that not many people have the pleasure of experiencing. They truly are works of art! Photography Alexander Thompson http://theblonds.nyc/

PONYBOY:  Please tell us about the “Mummy” inspiration for your Fall 2017 collection.

THE BLONDS:  For Fall 2017 we were inspired by an upcoming film, The Mummy, starring Sofia Boutella and Tom Cruise. It was all about the power of transformation and finding yourself.

PONYBOY:   We saw a lot of extraordinary elements on your runway, including feathers, pearls, crystals and amazing corsetry. Sexy over-the-top! Tell us more about the different elements in this collection.

PHILLIPE BLOND:   There were so many elements in this collection. We experimented with some Preciosa cushion cut crystals. They are beautifully faceted and add a lot of sparkle to the collection! We also used a lot of signature elements of ours, like crystal metal mesh and burn-out lace.

DAVID BLOND:   We mixed many contrasting elements this season. For example, the distressed denim, ostrich feather and pearl detailed denim jacket! Essentially, we took an athletic silhouette and expanded it to create a 1920s inspired cocoon coat bomber.

PONYBOY:   The work involved in each of your pieces must be overwhelming. From this collection, please tell us which look was the most labor intensive and how long it took to create the garment.

DAVID BLOND:   Phillipe’s finale look, definitely! It took nearly four months to make and we used over one hundred thousand Preciosa pearls and crystals!

PONYBOY:  Many of the looks we see on your runway are well suited for entertainers onstage for musical or other performances. However, there are looks that seem more versatile and appropriate for the red carpet. Those looks included some stunning sequined gowns, as well as a metallic Grecian style gown. Is this a direction that you feel you will explore more so in the future?

PHILLIPE BLOND:  Absolutely! This season was all about showcasing looks in pairs. Our signature pieces for performance and special occasion were juxtaposed with pieces that utilized the same materials and embroidery treatments, but made in a more wearable way.

PONYBOY:  Have you thought of doing a more modified or simplified line, something more accessible to the average shopper, yet still with the flair you are known for? And have you been approached by any companies to collaborate on this level?

THE BLONDS:   Yes! We have been approached several times to do this and once we find the right partner, we are very open to creating something for a wider audience. In the past we have created capsule collections with Moda Operandi, VFiles and Patricia Field; and we look forward to doing more of the same in the future.

PONYBOY:   The Blonds are well known for sending their models each season in matching blond wigs down the runway. Surprisingly, this season brought a ‘no wig” look created by the talented Kien Hoang from Oribe. Tell us about this change and the concept behind it.

DAVID BLOND:   The Blonds are all about inclusivity and due to the political climate this season, we chose to touch on this subject within the themes and inspiration for the collection. We feel like it’s important to express unity in creative ways.

PONYBOY:   You consistently work with world famous make-up artist Kabuki in collaboration with MAC cosmetics. What is that collaboration like? Tell us about this relationship.

THE BLONDS:   We’ve been collaborating with Kabuki for 10 years and he is a genius! He always surprises us with exciting ideas and is extremely detail oriented. Kabuki and the MAC Pro Team are a perfect partnership for The Blonds!

PONYBOY:  You’ve been in business for over 10 years. Amazing! What can we expect from The Blonds in future collections and for this next decade?

THE BLONDS:  There’s so much more to come, so stay tuned!

F/W 2017

New York City designer Georgine Ratelband continues her vision of the uptown girl who enjoys slumming downtown in effortless, luxurious clothes. Or perhaps it’s actually the downtown girl heading uptown? Nonetheless, whichever it was, it worked. The designer sent models down her runway wearing messy black bobbed wigs, adding to that fun-filled night out look. The collection consisted of fabulous metallic slip dresses, lace gowns, and her signature fur pieces, which are always stunners, whether it’s a stole or a coat. Standout looks for this season included a tan belted 70s style coat with extravagant fur collar, as well as the green leopard metallic fur coat and skirt set. Everything was well put together, and not too fussy. The finishing touch was the extraordinary makeup by MAC cosmetics guru Romero Jennings. Photography Alexander Thompson http://www.georgine.com/

David and Phillipe Blond, designers for downtown label The Blonds, seem to take a fantasy approach with every collection they design each season. And why not? The duo stated, “This season we revisited themes of our past collection, while also incorporating our newest inspiration, a riff on the heavy metal ’80s vs hip-hop, in a world where Mad Max meets the muses of Xanadu!”

We applaud anything that is not the same monotonous trend, with repetition on runways that we constantly see each season. And in true Blonds fashion they did not disappoint. Their twisted, yet beautiful take on the fusion of heavy metal /”Clash of The Titans” is about as far out as one can get. And it works. The designers celebrated a successful 10 years in business and stated that they’ve matured the line and are ready for their designs to be seen more so on the red carpet. We saw the classic Blond staples, which included festive corsets and bodysuits, as well as a couple of menswear looks which we’ve never seen before on their runway.  And they showed fantastic gowns, which are truly red carpet worthy. Let’s hear it for 10 more years of Blond fantasy ! Photography Alexander Thompson. http://theblonds.nyc/

GYPSY SPORT

S/S 2017

Wild! Fun! Colorful! Fantastic! That’s what we think about the Spring/Summer 2017 Gypsy Sport collection by designer Rio Uribe. The designer told us that his inspiration was “a halftime show mixed with a fashion show.  The collection was inspired by the fearless flappers of the 20s and the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics”. Take that NYC and the world!

The show trickled out from Samsung 837 onto the busy New York City sidewalks, much to the surprise of pedestrians walking by, bringing back flashbacks of Michael Alig’s outrageous “Outlaw” parties from years gone by. Diandra Forrest, the stunning albino Gyspy Sport muse, was statuesque with a Liberty spikes punk hairdo, paired with an orange mesh gown and bloomers. We went nuts for the purple floral print suit that was pure pop art. And the orange plaid looks were incredible, including the slip dress ensemble and the vest with deconstructed skirt. Football jersey mesh, feathers, lace and fringe constitute the classic unisex Gypsy Sport look. Festive butterfly makeup and extreme feathered jewelry added to the drama.

This is what fashion is all about, being unique, being different and not being afraid. We applaud the fact that even though the young label has quickly made it’s name in the cut throat world of fashion, they haven’t ditched their diverse and quirky roots by using big name, more mainstream models. Hail to the transgender, unknown gender, who the blank cares what gender world! Long live Gypsy Sport! Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://gypsysportny.com/

GEORGINE F/W 2016

FAIRY TALES

For Georgine’s F/W 2016 line, designer Georgine Ratelband found her inspiration in her childhood memories of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Using rich fabrics, finishings and chic silhouettes, Georgine delved into examining the innocent, sanguine characters of utopian worlds and also the moodier, challenging villains we see throughout the stories.

Some looks were undeniably devoted to specific characters. A fur lined, red hooded coat opened the show signifying Little Red Riding Hood. An array of blue dresses suggested Sleeping Beauty and the unexpected to-be princess, Cinderella. A shortsleeve sweatshirt emblazoned with ‘Grumpy’ across the chest does more than imply one of the most well known Seven Dwarves. We also see Hansel and Gretel expressed through a pink sleeveless dress adorned in wrapped candies and ribbons tied in bows. The deep woods that many of the stories are based in are portrayed through pieces made in brown, burnt umber and forest green colors. Further supporting the idea of nature we see separates made of metallic palm leaves, highly textured butterflies and flowers.

The darker looks towards show’s end were dedications to the evil queens, mothers and step mothers of famous folk lore. Adorned with a drastic cat eye and a very dark lip, models walked down the runway in sequins, leather gloves and black reptilian texture. Body conscious dresses were made of sheer silk, velvet burnout and patterned lace would have made any villain proud. Words Xina Giatas. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://www.georgine.com

A FASHION DEMONSTRATION!

For Fall/Winter 2016, Libertine designer Johnson Hartig gave us a very youthful and fun fashion demonstration.  We just loved everything about this collection, with it’s colorful pop art feel. The brilliant looks included capes, lace, emblems, beading, fur and florals. For men we saw vivid graphics, baseball caps, skater pants and sequined track suits. The trademark whimsical Libertine emblems were in full force again this season, including cigarette butts, fried eggs, bacon and voodoo dolls, to name a few. It was a psychedelic visual overload.  Some of our favorite looks include the stunning capes (art pieces unto themselves!), a cream “Chanel” style suit, a 60s tweed coat with doggy emblems and fur cuffs, a vibrant pink and red stripe chubby fur, a black monkey fur vest and a deep plunging black dress with Swarovski hand appliqués. The lace tights embedded with sequins and studs were a great finishing touch. The finale included all the young models demonstrating up and down the runway while holding picket signs with witty sayings. Overall, we were so delighted with this collection. The clothing encapsulates amusement and jest. And this is why Libertine remains a Ponyboy favorite. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://ilovelibertine.com

THE BLONDS S/S 2016

THE GOLDERN GIRLS

The designers behind New York City label The Blonds really never cease to amaze us. For Spring/Summer 2016, Phillipe Blond and David Blond were inspired by ancient Egypt, and their vision was truly a golden one. Model’s were sent down the runway in primarily glittery gold mini dresses and bodysuits. The first fabulous look was a gold snakeskin mini dress with spikes placed over the breasts and hips, giving us signature Blonds “over-the-topness.” The following look was just as impactful, consisting of a gold beaded bodysuit with Christian Loubotin thigh high boots. Other notable pieces included a jaw dropping turquoise crocodile mini dress with a long tail-like panel that dropped in front, as well as a gold studded motorcycle jacket that deemed worthy of Elvis. A multitude of gold goddesses walked the runway. Adding to this Egyptian mirage were the superb hairstyles designed by Kien Hoang for Oribe. Wigs were styled to look like the headdress of a Pharaoh.  And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Blonds show without the brilliance of makeup designed by our favorite artist, Kabuki. Stupendous! Photography Alexander Thompson. http://theblonds.nyc

APPLIQUE´S GALORE!

What don’t we love about Libertine? We were dazzled by the Spring/Summer 2016 collection shown during New York Fashion Week. Libertine creative Johnson Hartig gave us appliqués galore! The whimsical patches were thrown on everything, including coats, dresses, and a dramatic cape. There was a gorgeous long, green evening coat overloaded with appliqués, as well as a too cute white jacket shown with skinny cigarette pants. The overall feel of the collection had a sixties/seventies vibe, but with a Libertine twist. Hartig gave us both men’s and women’s silver sequined tracksuits, which shimmered down the runway, as if disco balls had been brought to life. There was a trio of printed flowing kaftans that will  demand attention at any hip, summer pool party. Chunky, neon chain links adorned clothing, bracelets and shoes.  And then there was the unforgettable chain link vest that closed the show. However, our very favorite look had to be the “Spaghetti Suit” that had appliqués which consisted of forks with beaded dangling spaghetti. Delicious! It left us craving more Libertine.
