Paging Cate Blanchett: Your next red carpet looks are ready. Wolk Morais (formerly Ruffian and a favorite of the actress) showed its fourth collection on Sunday night in WeHo with a modern twist on old Hollywood glam. Designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais, who refreshingly don’t seem to care what month it is when they show, presented their every season collection at local watering hole Harlowe (“two blocks from our house!”), which was decorated to reflect Hollywood’s Golden Age. What did the designers set out for this time? “Our love of the 1930s pre-code Hollywood and its uninhibited ingénues mashed up with Fairfax Avenue’s singular street style provided the perfect magnetic poles to inspire this truly Los Angeles-centric collection,” Wolk and Morais said before the show. “Those films are shocking and amazing. We wanted to show in a place that had that vibe.”
The boys once again turned to stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who gave models bangs and long gold necklaces on the runway. The election was addressed, and mods wore large safety pins, which have become an anti-Trump symbol. Wolk Morais also debuted its first logo, which united the letters W and M in gold. An enthusiastic crowd of next generation ingenues sitting front row included Marta Pozzan, Harley Quinn Smith, Chandler Kinney, and Claudia Lee. Partners for the show included Visit Weho, cocktails by Drambuie, hair by Paul Mitchell, makeup by Bite Beauty, and shoes by Terry de Havilland. The show was also the brand’s second alliance with TEEN CANCER AMERICA. The designers created a cloisonné pin especially for the occassion.
