Overt glam and oversized-everything ruled the cream carpet runway for Ken Borochov’s Mordekai Spring 2014 collection at Milk Made Fashion Week. The clothes were the accessories to the ‘accessories.’
Models strutted barefoot in lingerie, cutout one pieces and velvet bikinis. Pastel pinks and yellows set the color mood, while whites and purples grounded the collection’s palette without a hint of black.
Sometimes accompanied by feathered Mohawk headpieces, secured under the neck or over the model’s face, most looks incorporated large block letter slogans, of the “Queen”, “God” and “Trill” variety.
Borochov called this the Chastity Collection, but the “chastity” belts were of the most charming kind. Belts featured intricate floral designs, most with gold detail, reminiscent of gladiator attire suited for the stylishly adventurous.
The abundance of sheer and lace in each look balanced the bold accessories. The floor length lavender sheer overlay and baby pink baby-doll ruffled layered shirt were the most striking contrasts in the collection.
Choke collars, arm and ankle cuffs hooked to roped chains and enhanced by caged face pieces, rounded out this stunning collection.
Get ready for an endless loop of double takes if you dare walk down the street in a look from this one of a kind collection. - Niko Nelson
