Elvis called, he wants his coat back!!!
Don't ask me why, but that's the phrase that popped into my head when I looked at this wonderful Dandelion wool coat from Blindness.
I know perfectly well that The King would overheat horribly trying to eat fried chicken with this sucker on in the hot Tennessee sun but that's just how my brain works. I think it was the flares and the white leather boots that sent me down that track to Graceland.
Blindness is a curious label. I don't think we have featured before but who knows, after all this time even I am having a hard time keeping track. BLINDNESS was founded in the spring of 2013 and is based in Seoul, Korea.
BLINDNESS represents the dynamic combination between contemporary art and youth culture and always explore new mood and concept.The collections are defined by its signature minimalism use of the artworks and developed fabrics in contemporary mood.
But the most interesting thing of all, is that fact that they regard the label as totally gender fluid. Designers KyuYoung Shin and JiSun Park debuted the brand in 2013. Their The Danish Girl–inspired spring 2017 collection was filled with corset-inspired silhouettes, pearl trims, and millennial-pink ruffles — mostly shown on men. It was enough to grab the attention of the judges behind the LVMH prize, where they finished as semifinalists.
After being noticed by one of the most influential luxury-fashion conglomerates, they decided to go a step further for their fall collection. This time taking as inspiration the death of David Bowie and his fashion legacy. What resulted was a pearly shiny collection of puffers, dresses and superhero style cowboy boots...
I don't know about David Bowie but I'm looking at the skirt and boots above and thinking Wonder Woman all the way. Couldn't finish without this wonderful hoodie for Queen Michelle.
