Adonis King S/S 2018

Jenny Kim, Contributing Writer

Pink, black and white were the main allure of Adonis King’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Through his black satin dresses, see-through bodices and black corsets, King successfully embodied the theme God vs. Goddess.

When prompted about each color’s representation, the show manager shared how they relate to the overall theme.

“The pink represents the princess, the black represents the gothic of the gods, and the white represents the angel-like presence,” the show manager said.

In order to embody each element of the gods, King extracted characteristics from myths and legends and injected them into his clothing. To convey the Greek gods’ edgy side, models wore gold jewelry paired with black clothing. Representing the elegance of the angel-like goddesses, models wore white cocktail dresses with slicked-back hair and nude heels. To express the more dainty princess look, models wore marble patterned skater skirts and low cut peplum dresses. The makeup was heavy with intense strokes of bronzer and powder, but was brought to life through gold highlight on the cheeks. To keep the mutuality of the greek gods, every model wore dark plum matte lipstick.

King successfully captured the audience’s attention through the lights and music, in addition to the fashion. To compliment Thirty Seconds To Mars’ “Walk on Water” and Imagine Dragon’s “Walking The Wire,” the simple white and purple overhead lighting around the Punto Space venue provided the ideal backdrop for King’s collection.

King further conveyed his theme through luxury eye-wear with spikes and eye catching accessories such as a red backpack with gold circle designs. Not to mention, most of the models showcased the Vinci headphones.

All in all, the gods together created a powerful presence. During the runway, King let the Gods walk among mortal men.
