If you’ve seen images of the biggest entertainers—Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lil Kim, Britney Spears, Rihanna, J. Lo, or Madonna—on stage in a crystallized costume, you’ve seen the work of The Blonds.
The Blonds is an invitation to designer Phillipe Blond and creative director David Blond’s inclusive, wild, and high-octane world. Since 2006, The Blonds have catered to the entertainment industry with glamor-usly over-the-top designs. Celebrities rely on the duo’s intricate corsets, catsuits, and dresses for performances, award shows, editorials, and any other special occasion where they need to move and shine.
Their first book, as riotous as the brand’s legendary New York Fashion Week shows, unfolds in several acts, starting with an introduction to Phillipe and David, detailing their inspirations and how they built their rebellious brand over the last two decades. A chapter on their legendary runway shows includes details of their most iconic looks. The centerpiece showcases editorial and stage photography of celebrities, surrounded by anecdotes from the stars about their performances, life on stage, and their love of The Blonds. Including an in-depth look at the duo’s high-profile partnerships, runway shows, and the craftsmanship behind each piece, The Blonds is a backstage pass from sketch to stadium.
