The launching was on the 9 October with a 68 pieces (priced from $30 to $500): Strong collection of signature, “the ’90s-inspired wardrobe of your dreams”
“We’ve always focused our research around teenagers and what we call the ‘youth code’ of dressing since we started the brand, working on this collection meant we could go back and dig deep into those archives, finding old editions of i-D and The Face, Corinne Day and Kate Moss shoots”
In this collection you can find things like shredded denim pieces, interspersed with high-shine two piece suits, neon blazers, turtleneck dresses, coloured fur pieces, faux-fur bags and some excellent logo tops. The line is incredible and available!!
