Okay. So that is not something I ever thought I would be putting on the RARE vintage blog. But there it is: Gene Simmons from Kiss and his famous tongue. Why? Why you might ask? Why would I subject our poor readers to such a thing?
Because my little monsters (we are still feeling very Gaga here at RARE vintage; ) I have bought a few pieces by Larry LeGaspi. Who? Larry LeGaspi darlings. Larry Le Gaspi who had the ultimate in future-arama chic on Madison Avenue in his store, Moonstone which was all silver, with a floor textured like the surface of the moon and a twinkling sky overhead.
Larry LeGaspi went on to design costumes for Funkadelic, Patty LaBelle and Kiss. This is one of the great things I love about vintage: the unexpected. If someone told me, you are going to open a vintage store and you will carry pieces by a designer who designed costumes for Kiss, I would not have believed it. But I absolutely love this gown with a cape with gold cording. It is sexy, outrageous and fun. Happy clothes for happy people. I know that the woman who had this dress had a very good time in it. In fact, she had such a great time, she had them in every color!
Boys and girls, Larry LeGaspi:
See how amazing the dress is?!
