After days of back-to-back shows, sometimes it takes a little somethin' somethin' extra to make your mark at Fashion Week. Today, swimwear favourite We Are Handsome did just that, draping a real, yellow snake around a model's neck as she sauntered around the runway.
Before the presentation, designers Jeremy and Katinka Sommers warned of an unforgettable show, "We're looking to create an atmosphere of happy fun and we're sure attendees are going to leave with a skip in their step and a smile on their faces," they said.
Yellow snake aside, We Are Handsome was all about colour. First we saw swimwear in deep oceanic blues, navy and green, with the occasional animal print. Gradually, as the beat got faster, the looks got brighter. Sunset orange and yellow digital prints were a stand-out, splashing one-pieces and bikinis. A recurrent silhouette was the full one-piece featuring an exposed zip at the front.
But it wasn't all swimwear, We Are Handsome also send forth some seriously crazy tights, a dramatic mullet-hem skirt and loose-leg pants, all splashed with the label's signature prints. Keep scrolling to see the show for yourself.
