“We have been someplace round Barstow on the sting of the desert when the medication started to take maintain.” Thus begins Concern and Loathing in Las Vegas, gonzo maestro Hunter S. Thompson’s ever-entertaining account of how to not be a dependable journalist, and the supply materials for this night’s almost-as-diverting Home of Holland present. Strictly, Holland was impressed by the labor-of-love Johnny Depp flick from 1998. So the typically jeweled, typically embroidered bugs that oozed down his garments had been approximations of the hallucinatory particular results mustered for that manufacturing, whereas the bulging ostrich feather footwear and appliqués have been nods to the abysmal ’70s motel decor Depp’s Thompson bugged out on within the film.
The primary look featured a crazily patched discipline jacket on a mannequin styled to approximate Thompson himself, and the bucket hats that ran by means of the gathering had been extra hat-tips to the reprobate creator. Head-fry colourful cactus-print shirtdresses, nerd-chic pulled-high sports activities socks, queasy summary jacquards and you-really-shouldn’t-mix-those colour combos together with lime inexperienced and orange added to the maximalist overdose. Thompson and Holland, though separated by many years and disciplines, made for intoxicating bedfellows.
