Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear
February 02, 2008 New York
"She's the girl rock stars write songs about," said Milla Jovovich of Jovovich-Hawk's Fall museT. Rex's Marc Bolan being the rock star in question. A Lurex-shot wrap gown rubbed shoulders with minidresses in mod stripes, while a boy-cut plaid suit with wide lapels and flared legs mixed with clingy knit shifts and pantsuits. What separates this collection from a trip to the vintage store? Not so much, really, except that it's edited and filtered through the rock 'n' roll sensibilities of Jovovich and her fellow model-turned-designer Carmen Hawk. They know what hip chicks like to wear, and maybe that's enough. That's what Target is banking on, anyway. The latest designers to join the brand's Go International project, the duo's retro restylings arrive in its stores early next month.
