If Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock would have been fashionistas instead of well-known filmmakers, the result could have been pretty similar to the latest runway by The Blonds. Phillipe and David Blond were responsible of giving screams and drops of blood to the New York Fashion Week with their fall 2013 collection.
The knife is seen as a glam accessory and the horror and suspense as fashion elements, meanwhile Jack “Here’s Johnny” Torrance (Jack Nicholson) breaking the door in The Shining, Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) in the last scene from Psycho, and the horror queen Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), captured giving one of the biggest movie screams in history are all the stars of this horrific, but stylish clothing pieces.
The nails were done by CND Nail Fashion, MAC cosmetics did the make-up, and the models walked just as if they were inside The Overlook Hotel or at The Bates Motel. The front row had famous people like Carmen Electra, and on the runway they had tons of blond wigs and a lot of crystals that are already a signature of the brand.
The Blonds gave yesterday one of the best tributes to Psycho and The Shining that the fashion world has ever seen.
