FRONT ROW: Paris Hilton, Jay Manuel, Rod Stewart, Amanda Lepore
MUST HAVE ITEM: Sequin Body Suit
LOCATION: Milk Studio
Pulling in an audience with sharp style of its own, The Blonds closed Fashion Week with a show stopping collection. With celebrities including Paris Hilton, Jay Manuel and Rod Stewart in the front row, guests were taken on a Sci-Fi journey through The Blonds’ imagination.
“For Fall 2015, THE BLONDS will weave a cinematic tapestry paying homage to directors Jodorowsky (“The Holly Mountain”) and Kubrick (“A Clockwork Orange”) as well as characters like Tilda Swinton as Orlando. A battle royale of Fantasy vs. Reality, the BLOND WORLD ORDER begins!”
Body suits and leotards in neutral tones evoked an equestrian theme. The collection was accessorized with leather riding crops, and models wore manes to compliment bridle head pieces. With a glimpse of military inspiration, camouflage sequins and metal plates of armor brought the audience into battle with The Blonds’ revolution army…us versus them fashion in the most outrageous and exciting way.
We loved all the fur, along with a striking orange piece that rounded out a fun collection that could easily be imagined on any of todays top pop star. Phillipe and David Blond, a.k.a. THE BLONDS, have developed a dedicated celebrity following, and its easy to see why. Their fan following includes Beyonce, Madonna, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Britney Spears.
This collection made heads turn, but this is nothing new for the fabulous design duo!
