New York Fashion Week might be over, but things are just heating up for this year’s Next Wave Festival. From Willi Smith’s work with Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company in ‘89’s Secret Pastures (for which Keith Haring designed sets), to the custom Pina Prada bags at the Two Cigarettes in the Dark opening in ‘94, Next Wave artists have a long (and stylish!) history of attracting visionary talent from the fashion world… and 2015 proves no exception.
For instance, Timur and the Dime Museum’s rebellious requiem COLLAPSE, at the BAM Fisher through Saturday, features frontman Timur Bekbosunov sporting an intricately outré wardrobe designed by Bohemian Society-founder Victor Wilde. An emerging staple of international progressive fashion, Wilde’s signature post-punk couture has been seen everywhere from Tokyo Fashion Week to MTV. Smart, emotional, and reflective of a realm just beyond our earthly purview, Wilde’s designs provide an ideal complement to COLLAPSE’s grungy apocalyptic soundscape.
