There’s truly no better way to set the mood, than having two musicians sullenly grace the runway to play musical instruments stationed at the far end. ‘de’ represents more than just clothing, as Jacobs puts it, it is a personal culture. What we saw was a stark contrast between light and dark, and a clever use of texture and layers to create a look that was multi-dimensional on many levels.

There was a real sense that this is a wild child, one who stands up against authority, frayed at the edges both figuratively and literally. Models seemed to embody the defiant child, Max, from Where the Wild Things are, with unkempt hair and and paper crowns reigning them king above all others. Fur shrugs only seemed to accent this, as did the eerie manner in which models turned to gaze at the audience. Can you tell I’m excited?
