Jovovich-Hawk: Vintage Love

A vintage mélange of black and white polka dot chiffon, sweet antique lace and seventies sex appeal were at the heart of the Jovovich-Hawk Spring 2007 collection.

The leggy duo of entrepreneurial models – Milla Jovovich and Carmen Hawk – who were among the newest crop of CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund nominees, presented their always well-styled, young collection on Saturday, September 11th at a bright little, white brick abode on the corner of Little W. 12th and 9th Avenue – an obscure space that, appropriately, usually houses antiques.

The collection was overtly inspired by another time and was shown on a cast of 15 models standing high on platforms, casually holding fans and sporting little vintage hats from Jovovich and Hawk’s own vast collection. The majority of the hemlines hit the floor in cascades of silk chiffon, ruffles and flounces or simple white cotton and lace, but there were a couple of shorter numbers like a simple, nude shirt-dress that barely covered Miss Stanwood’s you-know-what.

Aside from a set of leggings that went with a short, ruffle-necked wrap dress, there were two pairs of pants: skinny jeans cut exactly how girls want them right now and how Farrah Fawcett wanted them back in the ‘70s – high-waisted, tight and very long. The other pair was extra-wide denim trousers the designers paired with a bikini top and an easy, belted cover-up.

The Jovovich-Hawk combination of florals sweet enough for granny, polka dots flirty enough for saucy sister and along with their modern additions of over-the-knee stockings and cropped orange spandex may seem like a bit much, but the overall feeling was coherent thanks to Jovovich-Hawk’s love of retro. Had they infiltrated their quirky styling into the actual clothes to take away some of the literalness of the collection, the final product would have felt even more fresh and unique. Hopefully we’ll see more of that come Fall 2007.
