The Blonds: F/W 2018 NYFW
Inspired by the constant struggle between good and evil, every piece from the Blonds Fall/Winter 2018 collection had a taste of both sugar and spice.
Some dichotomies in the clothing were subtle, while others, such as an angelic scenery printed on a corset top matched with leather pants complete with a garter belt, were not. Beautiful fiery reds on latex and lacquered pieces helped set the mood. One model donned a long sleeve latex body suit, with a flirtatious gold mini evening dress on top, playing at the two extremes of fashion. In each look, studs and leather were complimented with lace or pearls.
Daphne Guinness closed the show and performed a song with guitarists Steven Fairweather and Malcolm Doherty. Each piece, though beautiful, will be difficult to transition off the runway. Though as a Gemini, I was appreciative since the collection showed pieces suitable for both of my personalities: my good and my bad side.
