Until I saw the Odd People Spring/Summer 2019 collection I didn’t have any idea that a bunch of ruffles in fifty shades of pink, a crystal thunderbolt and a skull, some joggers and the “Don’t Call Me Baby” hoodies would steal my heart. “I wanted this collection to mix the LA vintage rock aesthetics with slick Parisian ease”, Jene Park, the designer said to me, while we were trying the outfits in Paris.
I know Jene Park for some years. And I have always admired her bold & strong collections for Thomas Wylde. Therefore, I wanted to know more about Odd People, actually a collective design team led by Jene Park and Brandon Sun. “I wanted to have the same nice pieces and daring, but a little bit more affordable”, Jene Park told me. “Odd People was inspired by Hollywood around 1975, when David Bowie arrived in Los Angeles, feeding his cocaine- infused frenzy into film and music – shot the futuristic psycho-thriller, The Man Who Fell to Earth, and composed his album Station to Station.” And the skull + bolt logo combination, printed in Swarovski crystal, can be seen on tops, on sleeves and ruffles.
