Adorned with turquoise teeth and colorful skull necklaces, beads and crystals, chains and rainbow-colored jewels, the models at DANNIJO's spring '12 presentation
at Soho House looked like they were part of the world's most eclectic (and bright) tribe. Drawing inspiration from cultural opposites like the Mexican holiday, Day Of The Dead, and the soft, and abstract paintings of Mark Rothko, the collection boasts gigantic chieftain necklaces that actually make skulls look cool, oversized fabric bangles that are pure Navajo teen, and chandelier earrings that render passports obsolete. While the entire effect might be jarring—dip-dyed hair clashed with gold chains, a man played the piano with no seat—it was fantastically so, a heavy trip in more ways than one, if you're into that sort of drug. And we kinda are—if this tribe is taking more members, pass us the peace pipe.
