The Blonds Fall 2012

The Blonds’ Fall 2012 presentation was my last show this fashion week.

David and Phillipe Blond were inspired by vintage biker chick flicks and the animated film ‘Heavy Metal’. They want women to be strong characters, equalling men in strength and prowess, but still look stunning and glamorous.

We saw strong fitted silhouettes with severe colours such as blood red, ice blue and jet black.

Distressed materials like leather and denim were mixed with crystals which made for an explosive presentation of fitted dresses, jumpsuits and bedazzling panties, but it was the corsets everyone wanted to see.

The crystal-embellished corset were breathtaking and I loved the red and black leather corset which reminded me of Michael Jackson’s iconic ‘Thriller’ leather jacket.

With Lil’ Kim in the front row, I wonder if she will get first dibs on this collection.

After attending four The Blonds fashion shows, this is the first time I have seen them dabbled in menswear.

Front Row: Lil’ Kim, Cassie and Adam Lambert

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Fergie, Rihanna and Kylie Minogue

    I loved your comments on your instagrams from this show. I agree – that blue one and Katy Perry need to meet up and become best friends. They Blondes are rising in my esteem – they keep turning out more and more creative work and beautiful corsets.

    I bet Adam Lambert can’t wait to get his hands on that leather and crystal jacket!

    I wonder if someone at The Blondes got on someone’s bad side – it seems surprising that a show of their caliber is never covered by Style.com

    so reminiscent of thierry mugler in the 90s – remember the motorbike/handlebar corset in that george michael music video?

    This whole collection plays into the Lady Gaga/Katy Perry/Nicki Minaj vibe of OTT craziness that I’m so tired of. :(
