FW 2017

Previous collections from The Blonds have been influenced by both classic cinema and great films of the modern era. For their Fall/Winter 2017 collection, inspired by NBC/Universals film “The Mummy”, The Blonds present a narrative collection of a woman whose story takes her from innocence, then through vengeance, to immortal glory.

With a view through their unique lens, The Blonds interpret the evolution of the title
character of the film through five stages - Innocence, Rage, Mercury, and Goddess.

Using the conflict caused by juxtapositions - hard ornamentation that embellishes rich voluminous fabrics, soft textiles that have been harnessed into structural pieces such as The Blonds classic corset – The Blonds modern day heroine appears, each piece revealing the complex yet commanding warrior spirit of the woman who wears it.

The collection is presented in pairs with one piece as the manifestation of pure elevated
fantasy worthy of center stage. The other her wearable, relatable, real world twin - the
powerful goddess that walks among us.
