These past couple of weeks I haven’t been able to get this image out of my head…it started in New York with the apparently blood soaked, slasher inspired dresses at Rodarte and the surreal, almost tribal deer head mask. This somehow stirred some of the images of Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke, the heroine’s blood soaked face and the mystical creatures in her forest.
The latex Balenciaga and the ruffian looks at Isabel Marant and Ann Deemeulemeester would most definitely get Princess Mononoke’s nod of approval. The glint of the airtex fan clutch by Karman Sarwar almost mimicks that of the dagger she wields at poachers.
If you haven’t seen this movie yet, you should! It’s been a while but the past few (fashion) weeks have made me want to see it again!
will blog more soon!
