Bonnie and Clyde Vibes At Harbison
Walking into the Harbison presentation at MADE Fashion Week at The Standard, High Line, was like walking into the best party. Drake was blasting, and a huge crowd was mingling around the models, including model Shaun Ross and stylist Ian Bradley. A live DJ really turned things up, and an adorable little boy was playing around next to him, which only added to the joyous feeling in the room. The clothes were feminine and figure flattering, with a number of unexpected details.
The silhouettes and much of the detailing were seventies-inspired – some belted coatdresses over flared trousers definitely reminded us of Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde. Most of the garments were incredibly intricate, and like any impressive work of art, you had to really study them to take everything in. Dresses were subtly layered over mesh skirts, a seemingly simple light blue A-line skirt turned into knife pleats halfway down, and a number of pieces featured thick lacing on the sides and back, making for an adorable monster-style look.
The color palette was strong and bright, with deep reds and blues interspersed amongst pale pastels and small touches of floral fabric, unifying the diverse pieces. Harbison SS16 offered something for every closet, from the minimal to the extravagant. We just want to put it on and run to Studio 54.
