The Blonds Fall 2013 Collection

Extremely popular with mega-celeb pop singers like Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry, the bizarre fashion duo of David and Phillipe Blond - known collectively as "The Blonds" - have been an absolutely fabulous team for over a decade, and you can read a bit about their work, relationship and ideas here

Pretty much everything they design is interesting, completely over-the-top and screaming of Warholian pop culture references, and the awesome slasher flick-inspired collection they debuted last month at New York's Fashion Week is no exception. Psycho, The Birds, The Shining and A Clockwork Orange are among the sources of inspiration.

These are my personal favourites:

Aren't the ropes and belts amazing? And the piles of blonde curls that top everything off are so early 60's; seeing them makes me want to watch some classic Hollywood kitsch and put more effort into my hairstyle tomorrow. Hitchcock would've been very amused.
