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.
