The Blonds Spring 2018: New York Fashion Week

The Blonds NYFW SS18

Represented by EB Consults Worldwide.

The Blonds — aka “The Show of the Week,” as most NYFW attendees would have called it — was the epitome of glitz and glamour.

The sparkles, tones, fades, textures, colors, and nail art blasted their presentation, “Platinum Paradise,” over the top. And Heather Reynosa from CND did an excellent job explaining all the work that goes into those intergalactic nails.

“Platinum Paradise” NYFW SS18

All the emoticons on a touchscreen couldn’t capture the feelings illicited by the models as they strutted fiercely down the fashion pathway. The show took inspiration from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “Kubla Khan”: an opium-dream of a poem that described a world both terrifying and sublime.

“And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.”

And indeed, with larger-than-life silhouettes, constellations of crystals, can-can colors, and lots of appliqués, the looks were dreamy, daring .. and just a little bit dangerous.
