High Fashion Inspired By Battle Royale
For those of you not keeping up with New York Fashion Week (totally won’t hold it against you), Band of Outsiders unveiled their Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection. The brand’s designer, Scott Sternberg, says the line was inspired by Battle Royale - the 2000 Japanese cult film about a class of middle-schoolers sent away to an island and forced to fight to the death. It’s basically The Hunger Games, but way better.
Check out the run way pics above and compare them to the class uniforms from the film. If only they somehow incorporated those sweet exploding collars into the runway show.
Givenchy is taking it back to nomadic spirit. For the Fall 2012 Couture Collection, Designer Riccardo Tisci was specifically inspired by Southern Italy gypsies. Lots of beads, lots of fringe… all meticulously hand-made. Molto Bella! Curious to own some precious finds of your own? Check out some of these Vintage Givenchy Dresses in the eBay closet.
