"It's taking the idea of delicateness and positioning it as a strength." - Chris Gelinas, designer of CG
In the November issue of Vogue, Kendall Jenner introduces the next big names in fashion -- the finalists of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. Two designers really jumped out at me, Chris Gelinas (pictured above) and David Hart. I just love designs that remind me of past eras. With Gelinas' design, Faye Dunaway's Bonnie Parker and the romantic and flowy silhouettes of the '20s immediately sprung to mind.
And I don't know if it was the inclusion of one of my faves Nick Waterhouse in David Hart's threads, but my mind went straight to '50s and '60s rock 'n roll, with the tailored look of the Zombies and Dylan, beehives a la The Ronettes and the tomboy style of Francoise Hardy.
See the rest of the finalists here.
"We've really moved into a streetwear-driven culture. Putting on a suit is almost rebellious." - David Hart, designer
