Nylon Email Newsletter, August 17th, 2005:
A bunch of young wannabe rock stars are gallivanting around the
city pretending to be so hardcore, clad in downtown garage-rock
style clothes they bought at H&M and Urban Outfitters. If
that’s you, accept my apologies, but real rockers, are starving
for garb that isn’t as easy to imitate. While the commercial
relationship between fashion designers and bands is a familiar
one--young musicians would rather be dressed by someone who’s
actually hanging out in the same scene, rather than corporate
trendsetters. Anthony Malat, bassist and stylist
for the Bellmer Dolls, fits the bill. He’s
one of many young indie designers in Lower Manhattan who will
dress pre-fame rockers in a tradeoff for exposure. With his label,
Sinner/Saint Menswear NYC, he has single-handedly
raised the bar to which all elegant degenerates would aspire.
The paradox in fact makes sense. Originally ordained as a minister,
Malat did a 180 and became a pillar in the art-punk scene instead
with his involvement in bands like Universal Order of
Armageddon. And his clothes are quite reflective of this.
Too polished for punk but too Goth to go mainstream, the line
combines elegant tailoring and a dark night-stalker look. It’s
custom-made for the long and limber rocker boys who make skinny
pants and shaggy hair so delectable. Malat takes a classic pin-stripe
suit he’s found in a thrift shop, tightens and adorns it
with leather, cross-inscribed cuffs and other sordid details,
bangles and buckles, in the finest bastardization of the uniform
normally relegated to those unfortunate day-dwelling 9-5ers. Though
so many of the bands he outfits are fashionable and flat broke,
Malat has already broken through to the famed Scissor
Sisters, Prosaics and Yellowcard.
