These may just be the guys you want to party with. A self-proclaimed “band of militia surfers from Southern California who call themselves the ‘Future Heretics.’” And the beverage of choice for said militia surfers and their gaggle of good-looking hipsters? Colt45. Yes, with a rowdy crowd ready to go, the revolution started with Colt45 in paper bags handed out to the seriously-styled front row. Talk about a photo op.
The guts and glory of the Spring 2010 collection were the gorgeous leather jackets and vests in muted greys and mustards, sent down the runway on both the guys and the girls. I love an unisex statement piece and paired with one of their signature tees and shades, this one is laid-back chic with a Risky Business cool factor.
Trendsetters like Rachel Bilson, Hayden Panettiere and Jeremy Piven already love contradicting their good guy/gal images with Future Heretics edgy tees. And while the new IT tee is probably not “The White Man is the Devil,” Im pretty sure this gang of militia surfers have a few more choice words for the fashion-savvy crowd ready to listen.
Downtown Los Angeles Fashion Week kicked off it’s Spring 2010 runway shows yesterday to a rain-soaked crowd at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. In a bid to stand out as the official LA Fashion Week organizer, DTLA colaborated with The Dept of Cultural Affairs for the City of Los Angeles and some famous LA faces to produce the kickoff show, the Fashion Angel Awards Emerging Designers Show. Judges Randolph Duke, Nony Tochterman of Petro Zilla, Nick Verreos, Project Runway winner Jeffery Sibilia and Vanessa Gonzalez selected three emerging designers to showcase their collections. And while Im a bit bias to GenArt who’s been supporting emerging designers for years (it’s kind of their thing), what the heck. There are more than a few indy designers in LA who could use a little boost and with GenArt’s ‘Fresh Faces in Fashion’ show not until the end of the month, I guess there’s room for everybody.
