"Karma Chameleon." "I'll Tumble 4 Ya." "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?" The immortal Culture Club hits that looped on the soundtrack at the Alexandre Herchcovitch
show today were plenty enjoyable; some attendees couldn't help but sing along. But you didn't need to hear the songs to know that this collection was Herchcovitch's homage to Boy George. Indeed, a huge part of the collection's charm was its overtness—Herchcovitch was wearing his heart on his sleeve, and his girl was wearing signature Boy George hearts all over her clothes. Still, the Brazilian designer's take on the Boy George look wasn't straightforward. Using substantial, couture-quality materials, he reinterpreted the singer's baggy, Culture Club-era ensembles as blocky tees, board shorts, jumpsuits, and shirtdresses. Early-eighties checks, plaids, and font prints were absurdly exaggerated, giving the looks a winning madcap affect. This show was a lot of fun—and not just because of the music playing in the background.
