Speaking of boy bands, they’re just one of the inspirations sassy label Lonely Hearts is claiming for their Winter 08 collection IOU NOTHING, launched tonight at MyHart, their flagship store. Boy bands, B Grade 80s flicks and Punk Princesses to be exact. Sitting in the show at Fashion Week I couldn’t stop marveling at the fresh, well executed and covetous looks that kept coming down the runway.
The collection includes punk elements in studded, worn out leather jackets, unbelievably cool black and blue tartan check drop crotch pants (which I ordered), and high shine brothel creepers; boy band and 80s references in the electric colours, huge oversized Madonna print tees, orange dresses and polka dots; and a crossover to the moment everything went grunge in the tartan shirts and washed out tee shirting.
This is a label that has that perfect combination of skill, talent, timing and inspired design. I have no doubts that we’ll be seeing all the cool kids in Lonely Hearts’ punky hard edged glam outfits within days.
