Crystals, spikes, chains, and glitter…what do all of these things have in common? They scream, “Look at me!” This exclamation seems to be the M.O. of fashion duo The Blonds, as all of their designs are quite difficult to tear the eye away from.
Though you may not know them by the mention of their name, chances are you’ve seen their work on your favorite, with their clientele including Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, and Sarah Jessica Parker, to name a few. From Samantha Jones’ ravishing spiked red dress in the karaoke scene in Sex and the City 2 in 2010 (which Rihanna rocked that same year) to Jennifer Lopez’s shimmering long-sleeved warskirt look just last week at the Premios Juventud 2013 Awards, their pieces leave no gem unturned, and make their wearers shine as brightly as possible.
I had the privilege of attending their show during Fashion Week last September, when they were presenting their Spring Collection at Milk Studios, and subsequently got to meet one half of the duo, Phillipe Blond (pictured above, left). Phillipe was the image of grace and humbleness, thus making my experience that night just that much more inspiring.
Flip through photos of their work below, and tell us which is your favorite! We love to hear from you! Also, be sure to follow them on Instagram @TheBlondsNY, as they are always posting past, and current looks, along with mood inspirations for future collections!
*Note: Does Philippe’s corset look familiar? If so, it’s because Beyonce wore the same one in the Upgrade U video, way back in ’07!
