S/S 2015

Classic is not a term that is usually associated with The Blonds. However, this over-the-top collection presented at Milk Studios in New York was “Classic Blonds” in every way. Phillipe and David Blond, the extremely creative design duo behind the collection, channeled a harem of Chola girls for Spring/Summer 2015. It was pure bad girl beauty including their signature over-the-top jewel-encrusted bodices and jumpsuits, as well as sheer harem pants, tattoo bodysuits, and silk roses galore! Our best loved piece would have to be the mind-blowing, religiously inspired “candle-dripped” corset. Can you say Catholic Couture? The styling was on the mark as well, including insane nails, gigantic blonde Rapunzel style braids and enormous gold door-knocker banji earrings. The teardrop tattoo on the upper cheek was a genius and crucial touch created by make-up wizard Kabuki. The Blonds held true to their twisted, glamorous style as the couturiers of the pop star set. So, look out for their spectacular creations on upcoming tours all over the world! And on a final note, besides all of the fabulous nightclub personalities attending the show, we truly enjoyed an impromptu whirl and twirl on the runway by the Lady Bunny herself, in her classic psychedelic micro mini and gargantuan wig.
