When Henry told us he wouldn’t be doing t-shirts anymore, we knew this next season would be a pivot.
Would he prove to be more than the infamous “ONE TRICK PONY” his shirts proclaimed?
Well, yeah, of course he would.
Tonight, Henry smacked down a collection of club wear that was vibrant, fueled, and full of hard edges to sharpen the hearts of the club kids.
Can anyone wear the studded blue bodysuit that slinked down the runway? Well, Tanya D. did, if that tells you anything.
But there were some other pieces – jackets, shorts, dresses, easiness – that will go on real boys and girls just fine. And although there were no t-shirts, the prints Henry gave had a graphic punch that can still show his signature style.
While the coolest thing in the show was Agyness Deyn (hello, what else), what really impressed us was the mix of women’s wear and men’s wear, and how except for a few mini skirts, the collection had a good unisex heap for girls and their gay best friends to share before BoomBox.
We’ll have the rest of Fashion East coverage tomorrow, including (I hope) some major discussion about the Noki show…
