Duchesses of Hazard
Cynthia Freund describes her new collection as, “American
Spirit… think cross country roadtrip. Feminine denim that
is playfully rebellious.” Indeed, the designer’s work
is a little bit of country and a little bit of rock & roll.
Rose Schott’s jean pants, skirts, jackets, vests baptized
with interesting (as well as self explanatory) names like, Dirtflirt,
Rock Princess, Gasoline Girl and White Trash bank on cool irreverence
to make a mark. Positively risqué and somewhat disheveled;
these ensembles celebrate cowgirls with a penchant for Elvis vacationing
in the Redneck Riviera.
