Anonymous Pocahontas: at Joaquim Correia

I wish I could tell you exactly what was going on in the mind of Joaquim Correia when he breathed this unusual collection into being, but alas I did not get a chance to ask. On the runway at ModaLisboa his small regiment of uniformly platinum bobbed models seemed to fall somewhere between Pocahontas and fame-shy pop singer Sia. Faces were obscured but midriffs and…

If you haven’t already heard it, may we make a suggestion that you do so after the break? And of course to see the BCBG Max Azria…
