Blaak Homme

It was clear through the music, prints, and accessories that Blaak homme’s show had heavy ethnic and jungle influences. Live percussion set the stage for the dark show as the models paraded about wearing plunging necklaces made up of large beads and bone-like pieces. Various faux animal print lit up a lot of the shirts and pants as it was displayed in black and white and red and black at other times. The fit was a bit more relaxed than I would have thought as well. All in all I thought the show was casted well and had a concrete inspiration which I very much appreciated, but maybe lacked that special oddness I have to come to expect from Blaak Homme. They had great separates thought that I could easily see myself mixing in.
