DIRTY PINEAPPLE
S/S 2020

Dirty Pineapple explores the idea that personas from past relationships are recycled through life with one’s different partners. They call it recycled love.

PRIVATE POLICY
S/S 2020

“Divided,” “torn,” “polarized,” all seem to be the words describing the tension between liberals and conservatives, rich and poor, different races.

LAURENCE & CHICO
F/W 2019

Laurence & Chico’s Fall/Winter 2019 is inspired by the designer duo’s recent trip to Thailand. Thai culture and cuisine are reflected in the collection through the use of bold colors, intricate beading and embroidery.

SPRING 2019

CHRISTIAN COWAN
SPRING/SUMMER 2019

Christian Cowan is the young handsome and oh-so-talented designer that we fell in love with last season. And this season was another love affair with his creative and colorful collection that was sent down the runway for Spring/Summer 2019.

CALVIN LUO
FALL 2018

Calvin Luo’s most recent collection, for Fall 2018, took a walk on the wild side with 50s subculture rebel inspiration – think photographer Karlheinz Weinberger, a Ponyboy favorite. Young and eclectic, we just love it!

SNOW XUE GAO
A/W 2018

For those who do not know, Snow Xue Gao is a young super cool New York City designer. This is the second time that we’ve featured her dramatic designs with our backstage photography during New York Fashion Week. This collection is so twisted and beautiful, we are just simply in awe and could get enough.

LIBERTINE
FALL 2018

We’ve probably said this before, but here we go again…Libertine is hands down our favorite collection to feature every season during New York Fashion Week. Brilliant designer Johnson Hartig is consistently dead on with his LA based hi-end fashion label, catering to fun girls and boys with a bit of extra cash in their wallets.

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!

GEORGINE

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/

Shown twice a year during New York Fashion Week, Hartig’s collection is the one that we are always most excited to cover. Perhaps it’s the explosion of prints and emblems on colorful clothing, as well as the intriguing mix of punk references on high fashion clothing. Or perhaps it’s because each individual piece of clothing is a thought out piece of wearable pop art. But whatever the reasons, we are extremely ecstatic for our interview with the brilliant Hartin. Photography Alexander Thompson http://ilovelibertine.com/

PONYBOY:  Johnson, we’re big fans of the Libertine label and it’s always a Ponyboy favorite to cover during New York Fashion Week! Please tell us about your most recent collection for Fall/Winter 2017.

JOHNSON HARTIG:  Thank you! We’re big fans of Ponyboy! Our Fall/Winter 17 collection was inspired by everything from Romanian gypsies to Ann Getty interior design. Always art inspirations, as art is nearest and dearest to us. With my art background it’s little wonder… it was a really luxurious collection, and quite divine and rich we think…

PONYBOY:   Libertine collections are always such a fun event – so young and filled with colors, patterns and textures. Where do you get your inspiration from?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   Travel, literature (the pop art word print was Robert Burns’ “Oh were my love yon Lilac fair” done in these intoxicatingly bright saturated colors), nature, history, luxuriousness, beauty, punk rock, no wave, and classical music…all the usuals…

PONYBOY:   Each show is a visual explosion of creativity. And we can never decide our favorite Libertine looks each season (those punk Union Jack pieces from Spring/Summer 2017 are always in our dreams!). But offhand, for this collection, we loved the pieces with holographic paillettes, the full leopard looks, and the “Neat Neat Neat” trench, which we think might be a nod to The Damned song? Oh and we mustn’t forget the black coat with the silver beading and hands that gave us Art Deco/Schiaparelli visions. What would you say are your own personal favorites from this collection?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   I love the “neat, neat, neat” crystal effect, yes inspired by the Damned, also a cool “Birthday party” sweatshirt, and the all over leopard spotty looks DRIVE ME CRAZY –  so fucking divine…men’s clothes are so easy, women are more complicated…

PONYBOY:  There seems to be consistent pop art/punk overtones in your collections, which is something that we go crazy for. Would you say this comes from your formative years?

JOHNSON HARTIG:  Yes, of course! I was a product of the late 70s/80s and there was a thriving punk rock scene in Los Angeles and Orange County. It was such a free time to express one’s creativity through clothing, and especially being in art school at the time – never could beat that time – the kids of today have NO idea how to express themselves – they aren’t confident enough, there’s too much self analyzing now…it’s a shame really…

PONYBOY:  We’re enamored with the pop art “lettering” print on Looks #16 & 17 – that mink is just fantastic! Did you design that print?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   Yes, I designed it. As I said, it’s the English romantic poet Robert Burn’s poem done in poppy colors….that mink coat is over 600 pieces of intarsia pieces – our furrier called us in a rage when she received the pictures of what I wanted and said she could never do it, then did, and it is her favorite thing she’s ever made now…

PONYBOY:   Some of the very dramatic one of a kind coats and capes that are shown on your runway each season are extensively covered with embellishments/beading, which must be very labor intensive to create. Can you tell us on average how long it might take to make a piece like this?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   Some of them weeks, some of them a day, some hours, and in a great flurry of inspiration, if I’m in the studio working alone, with a great classical aria playing, maybe just minutes…inspiration is elusive, and can’t be predicted…

PONYBOY:   We’re big vintage collectors and have been for years, since high school actually. And we’ve never stopped collecting! The Libertine label is not only ready to wear, but also an interesting mix of vintage with embellishments. Would you say that vintage plays a big part in your life as well?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   Vintage is all I wore when I was a young man, we all did, everyone in art school then did…the more outrageous the better…and in fact my Grandmother and Great Aunt Birdie used to take me to thrift stores when I was a very young child – they loved it so much…they used to wear one pair of shoes into the store and wear another pair they liked better out – their reasoning was – they’re all old anyway – who cares as long as they leave a pair…any wonder I have such a rebellious contrary spirit?!

PONYBOY:  You are a West Coast based label. Do you have any thoughts of opening a boutique in Los Angeles?

JOHNSON HARTIG:  We are opening a free standing Libertine shop in the new Fred Segal store opening in the fall on Sunset Boulevard. That’s as close as we’ll get to our own store I think – we’ll leave that to the pros….

PONYBOY:  A rather sad thought, a large chunk of your Spring/Summer 2016 collection went missing, thanks to UPS. This is such a devastating loss, as your pieces are like works of art. Were the pieces ever recovered?

JOHNSON HARTIG:  Nope, never saw that box again…I know it’s sitting in some warehouse somewhere just waiting for us patiently …what a cadre of divine things just sitting there in a dark box somewhere …

ADAM SELMAN

FALL 2017

For Fall 2017 New York womenswear designer Adam Selman juxtaposed western-themed denim to Studio 54 disco lame. Selman’s denim was embroidered with beautiful large red roses, while some of his disco looks were embellished with flat crystals. We saw to die for high-waisted, wide leg trousers (a Ponyboy favorite!), shimmering metallic lame disco dresses and a fabulous green crystal mesh bodysuit and tank dress. The rose theme continued throughout the collection with mourning veils topped with large roses created by Gigi Burris Millinery. Selman’s hint of bad girl appeared in a terrific nude girl/rose print collaboration with fashion artist Ricardo Fumanal. The topless model walking down the runway wearing only metallic jeans with her upper body hidden from a hugely oversized bouquet of roses brought humor to the show. And we just loved the fabulous cat-eye sunglass collaboration with Le Specs! Photography Alexander Thompson http://adamselman.com/

LEXI MCGEE

For our latest women’s editorial, Ponyboy took an early sixties turn, featuring classic, elegant womenswear that was perhaps very well-suited for and inspired by a famous first lady. Not wanting to be too stuffy, we added a bit of rock-n-roll styling with a beehive that was more befitting of say, Ronnie Spector, and the obligatory dark cat eye. Great vintage pieces were lent from New York City vintage collectors, including Aly Rose Vintage, Shirley & Alice and Black Bear Vintage. Our model pick was beauty Lexi McGee, a hot newcomer with New York Model Management. Photographer Alexander Thompson. Stylist/fashion editor Xina Giatas. Makeup Flynn Pyykkonen. Hair Juli Akaneya.

ADAM SELMAN

S/S 2017

Adam Selman is a young creative womenswear designer that has taken the fashion world by storm. And we’re not just saying that because we’re big fans of his innovative designs. From 10 finalists, Selman was one of the two runner-ups selected for the 2016 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award, receiving $150,000. The designer stated, “My inspiration came from artist Aaronel deRoy Gruber’s plexiglass work from the late 60s and 70s as well as a 1940s graphic from a “pornographic movie” and listening to Donna Summer’s Summer Fever on repeat.” We just love his vision and can’t wait to see what he designs for many seasons to come! Congratulations Adam! Photography Alexander Thompson  http://adamselman.com/

GEORGINE

SPRING 2017

Georgine Ratelband, the designer for New York City womenswear label Georgine, gave us the quintessential mix of uptown meets downtown, an updated and glamorous 90s grunge collection. It’s exactly what a young girl gets when she raids her mom’s closet with beautiful designer pieces, but she throws in some combat boots, red smudged lipstick and a messy bob, a la Courtney Love. Season after season, Georgine is in tune with what young, hip, cosmopolitan women want. Her past collections have been refreshing and luxurious, with a distinct New York City edge.  And for Spring/Summer 2017, Georgine held fast to her roots. We saw her classic fur pieces (always a favorite), as well as trench coats, slip dresses, sequins and cut-outs. Georgine sprinkled some punk into the collection, for example,  safety pins forming an anarchy symbol on the back of a silver metallic leather jacket, which was truly stunning. There was a black bra gown with slits from top to bottom which were held together by hundreds of small safety pins, a fabulous nod to Gianna Versace’s S/S 1994 safety pin collection. Our favorite pieces were the long metallic t-shirt dresses and the day-glo, spotted yellow fur coats. Onward, Georgine! Photography Alexander Thompson http://www.georgine.com/

threeASFOUR

SPRING 2017

When one thinks of downtown design trio threeASFOUR, visions of fabulous futuristic fashion always come to mind. This season was no different as designers Gabi Asfour, Angela Donhauser and Adi Gil gave us what was expected, but so much more. ThreeASFOUR used friends as models for their collection, which is always a refreshing change to the usual trendy agency models. For Spring 2017  we saw patterns, lots of patterns in bold, colorful geometrics. There were brilliant organic and architectural dresses, flowing caftans and cut-out jumpsuits, as well as avante garde men’s pieces. The footwear of choice were Vibram Five Finger running shoes – a perfect accompaniment. The finale stunner was a jaw-dropping blue, cage style 3D printed dress, that we spotted backstage giving designer Angela some technical difficulties right before hitting the catwalk. But fashion prevailed and threeASFOUR ruled their modern runway as usual. Photography Alexander Thompson  http://www.threeasfour.com/

CHROMAT

S/S 2017

Designer Becca McCharen-Tran stated that, “The Chromat SS17 HYPERWAVE collection is inspired by the strength and power of professional female athletes like Serena Williams, Simone Manuel and flyboard world champion Gemma Weston, who push both their bodies and their sport to the extreme.” She scored well with this athletic based collection. Everything seemed bold and modern with attention to detail, the body and cut – classic Chromat. Signature color-blocking, mesh, cut-outs and neoprene on bikinis, bodysuits, etc. filled the runway. And unlike many other designers, she actually designs for all body types and shows her runway collections on different shapes and sizes. Thank you for keeping it real!

A DÉTACHER FALL 2016

CITY GIRL ON THE PRAIRIE

We’ve always been fans of the somewhat obscure and small scale New York City womenswear line known as A Détacher. And designer Mona Kowalska did not disappoint this season, sending models down her Fall 2016 runway with Victorian and 80s references. Oversized was a key element with the downtown designer’s collection, which is a signature element in many of her collections. The show opened with a dramatic round shouldered quilted black coat that definitely caught the crowd’s attention. There were very beautiful knits, layered one on top of another, including soft cape-like collars and sweet ruffled-sleeve dresses. A very 80s inspired plaid culotte jumpsuit and gorgeous pink and grey floral print dresses breezed down the runway. Let’s not forget to mention the genius leather skirt reminiscent of a pair of chaps, the oversized leather belt/waist cinchers and the furry clogs. Of note were the quirky braided hairstyles that were joined at the ends, adding to the western/prairie feel of the collection. This unique collection is definitely a city girl’s “go to” during the cold winter season. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://adetacher.com
