Can we please talk about Meadham Kirchhoff this season? First of all, to be completely honest, last season didn't really do it for me. I felt like it was much more two dimensional then the other collections the team has put out in the past.
This season however was much different. I saw a painting of insanity. Replacing the usual bright and eccentric color palette with a Robert Mapplethorpe BDSM Polaroid meets Wednesday Addams sort of vibe. In other words, this collection was flawless: A marriage of pure genius and pure insanity at its finest. I can only wonder what kind of change the design team went through between the past two seasons. I am truly grateful for it. The angry leather and vinyl mixed with 60's pilgrim collars scream of a sexual perspective on teen angst. Perhaps this teen angst is instead a transition with where Meadham Kirchhoff is going: from a youthful Kathleen Hannah to a dark and angry Kurt Cobain.
