The Blonds SS18 Collection was not called, “The Show of the Week,” for no reason by NYFW attendees. Their line, “Platinum Paradise,” was the soul of pizazz and glamour. The presentation was phenomenal with the intricate designs in sparkles, tones, shades, textures, patterns, colors, and even little details such as nail art. Behind all of the artwork, the designer’s had some inspiration in mind, relating to poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s work, “Kubla Khan.” The poem was an opium-dream revolving around a world believed to be both disturbing and picturesque.

 “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.”

–Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Contrast and color were huge element incorporated into the formation and overall design of the looks. Unusual color pairings and texture/pattern usage made models bold and strut in daring danger. Every detail was carefully placed and the outcome was remarkable in terms of use of design elements, as well as creativity. The pieces did indeed illustrate a world of terror and sublime, just as their intentions.
