S/S 2016

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 Louboutin 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.
