BEAUTY: Clothing--Bodybound SS'18

Protest is on the wind, even in subtle ways. The designer duo behind Bodybound, Kim Wilkins and Pliny Champion, celebrated the 50th anniversary of The Summer of Love (1968 - 2018) with a gauzy, breezy, Spring Summer '18 collection at London Fashion Week Men's that referenced flowers and freedom. Sheer materials, denim, tunic tops, and embroidered peace signs showed up along with the very current protest statements "WE SHALL NOT WILT" and "NO FIGHT NO FUTURE." We must not wilt. We must resist and protest against the Trumps, the Mays, the Putins of the world.
