paper dolls – Travis Taddeo SS10
Travis Taddeo‘s clothes are all about attitude – what he does best is a contrast between oversized, soft jersey and tight, body-conscious leather. Its all a little NSFW, 19+, which suits fashion week just fine – he stands well apart from the pack. My favourite part of Taddeo’s show is always the finale – Taddeo walks to the runway with a brooding gaze towards the camera pit, and his gang of scantily clad, baseball bat wielding models follow him in a tight pack before they all turn abruptly and walk back. Its the sort of thing a designer only gets to do twice a year and it looks like a very satisfying thing to do.
