A collection of biblical proportions, KAAL.E.SUKATE’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection entitled “Dust to Dust” looked like a dominatrix and disco infused tribute to the nightlife of yesteryear. When one sees sparkling metallic dresses and crocodile embossed leathers, what’s a man supposed to think? Yet, Studio 54, this collection was not: it was actually based on a chapter out of the Bible of Daniel, “A Dream of a King,” to be exact.
I’m certain there were more than a few women in the audience who wouldn’t have minded being crowned in laser cut, open backed blazers in egg shell or belt strapped trousers, leather pleated dresses or crop top bombers. Then, there were the shoes. Sexy, bondage heels that sang down the runway and ‘Jesus’ sandals tied in gold chain. Each model did their final turn down the catwalk, bathed in light. A religious experience to say the least.
