What a killer show… literally! I wouldn’t want to mess with anyone wearing these clothes. Edgy coolness and fiery passion kept their collection in perfect balance. The theme, “Live Fast, Dye Blond,” certainly put me on the fast track. As the biker-helmeted models’stomped for attention down the catwalk, the motorcycle from the movie, TRON, only added to the furiously magnificent collection.
Chilling silvers, midnight blacks, blazing reds, stormy grays and blues completed The Blonds vision. The silhouettes of each piece were tailored tight to the models’ bodies. One piece jumpsuits, corsets, and mini dresses were runway regulars, along with men’s jewel embellished leather jackets, which I’m sure will soon become every biker’s guilty pleasure.
I absolutely loved the juxtaposition between their signature flaming red and arctic blue corsets! The red ensemble was encrusted in jewels along with protruding crystals at the hips and bust. As I began to swelter just looking at this, my temperature rose even more after seeing her GORGeous Christian Louboutin thigh-high, high-heeled boots, and by thigh-high, I mean literally extended to the top of her legs. Just as it seemed like the audience was beginning to melt, frostbite took over with The Blonds masterfully crafted blue corset, differing only in color.
The Blonds, certainly ones’ not to be reckoned with, constructed an edgy, apathetic, cool, passionate collection all into one brilliant show!
