The Blonds runway shows always have a shock and awe value we’ve all come to love, so it was no surprise that their horror movie inspired collection for fall 2013 got our panties in a bunch. For the right reasons of course. For starters, there were stray jackets. Not just any stray jacket. Fur stray jackets. If they were going to drag us into a looney bin, we would like to go fashionably thank you very much. We’re waiting to see Lady Gaga grab that Jack Nicholson dress from The Shinning. The collection was a slasher movie buff’s dream. Rain jackets and corset dresses with knife wounds and blood splatter and dresses with knife prints.
Of course the beauty component got us all twisted. Hairstylist Nick Irwin gave all the models what he called, “Marilyn Monroe on acid after having sex all night.” I mean don’t you just see it? Right! He used TIGI Catwalk Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo to get mega-volume, and then used TIGI Catwalk Sleek Mystique Look-Lock Hairspray to set the look.
CND created ustom horror movie-themed tips for the show, including sets with iconic images of Jack Nicholson in The Shining and Janet Leigh in Psycho, others with dozens of Swarovski crystals, and some with dangling jewels or dangerous-looking crosses. Bitching! If only we could get a set or two of these come Halloween.
