Wow. Avant Garde. Conceptual. A fetish fantasy?
At Charlie le Mindu this spring season we see latex body suits, of the black patent and nude colored variety. We also see hair, in forms you never thought it could take. While the collection itself is small, with only about a dozen looks, each one seems to have been painstakingly designed and created. If Lady Gaga is looking for her next shocking ensemble, she need not look further than this collection.
Hair is braided as a full face mask. It’s in the form of lips perched on top of the model’s head. One headpiece has a bird perched amidst a blond coiffure. Hair is in waves tucked underneath hoisery and worn as pants. Hair is long and straight as a jacket and dress. The colors of the collection take on what else, but the natural hair color rainbow. Black, brunette and blond. For those of you who by any chance fetishize hair and patent latex, and for those of you who are intrigued by my description this show is a must see.
