Blondie

JCDC AW78 Blondie

One minidress in the Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Autumn/Winter 2007-2008 Show paid homage to Blondie.

Another Blondie-inspired collection : A.L.C. Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (the starting point of this collection, designed by Andrea Lieberman, was a picture of Blondie’s Debbie Harry looking tough in Amos Poe’s « The Foreigner » film).

To read about other Blondie or Debbie Harry-inspired collections or items, search for the « Debbie Harry » post that I have published on November 8, 2012.
