Whenever there has been an aesthetic revolt against existing culture, fashion has always been out front. This does not happen because of any grand plans, it’s simply born out of a burning desire to be different mixed with anger and a rejection of what’s in. That fierce spirit was stamped all over Jordi Scott’s Spring/Summer ’09 collection. The collection was equal parts N.Y ’70s punk & ’80s L.A Sunset Strip club glam. Iconic images of counter culture soldiers from the past mixed with sexy tailoring and bold fabrics. The collection flowed strongly from Jordi Scott and Starr Rinaldi’s, defiant attitude, but that didn’t stop the collection from being sexy. The show felt, and this is meant as a strong compliment, dirty. I felt I was as if I was watching something dangerous as the models strode towards me. Call it dirty glamour, these were the dirty boys and girls that deep down everybody envies. My favorite pieces were a white and black collared PVC jacket that was aggressive and beautiful, and an asymmetrical black and white tiered dress which invoked the ’80s but still had a modern feel. Let me state without hesitation that Jordi and Starr are going to be rock and roll favorites for a long time.
