We are all about honesty here at Fashion Intelligentsia, so I am going to tell you that I often delete my Daily Candy without reading it. I am glad today was not one of those days because Christian Joy has returned from her disappearing act. I remember the days wandering around New York City wishing that Karen O. was my best friend and Christian Joy was designing my costumes. In those days (um, 6 years ago) I truly looked like I was going to a costume party. I remember reading NYLON magazine and seeing a plump Karen Orzolek being drenched in Heineken by an androgynous young fashion designer named Christian. Parfait? Yes.
Even if the Yeah Yeah Yeahs now produce songs that pale in comparison to their beginnings, Unitard anyone?, there is one thing that has remained a constant – Karen O’s fabulous costumes. See her model Christian Joy’s new collection here.
P.S. Does this collection not channel Alyssa Hori?
