Lookbook Love: Cat Called Esteban

57920012In the throws of being immersed in the 90s culture that is still in fashion focus, it’s hard to keep up with all the great vintage shops that are online in all corners of the world. This look book from Cat Called Esteban based in the UK is such a perfect representation of the European take on the 90s grunge style.

Look Book Love : Yang Li SS13

1008867

It was only a matter of time before the street style photography style would begin to bleed into the fashion industry. While it already has been for years, a more literal and realistic approach was taken with the SS13 look book from then London based designer, Yang Li. Now I believe he’s based in Paris.  I know this collection is a few seasons old but I just can’t get this tough but street minimal clean taste off my brain.

Look Book Love : Nico Carp A/W 14.15

NicoCarp_back2Grunge_1

From all corners of the globe this early nineties style is being soaked up for inspiration in current collections.  For designer Nico Carp, based in Bucharest, Romania she used the “back to grunge” concept in her AW 14.15 collection.

She says “This collection aims to keep the image of the past but also wants to reflect the grunge attitude of these days, the joy of our own freedom.”

Dim. E. Cres – I’m The Future | Fall 2014

dim-ecres-fall-2014-im-future22509

The Fall look book from Korean label, CRES. E. DIM‘s second line, Dim. E Cres gives me a whole new reason to look forward to the Fall season. I pretty much long for the end of summer just as soon as it begins each year. This take on a modern sportwear school girl mixed with a touch of 90s edge is one of the most original takes on fashion I’ve seen for a minute. Kudos, Dim. E Cres.

Look Book Lust: Bassike Resort 2015

ImageGen-1

The sports-luxe trend seems to running at full steam even after a few seasons. It’s been reinterpreted by Australian brand, Bassike for their Resort 2015 collection. Shot in an empty pool with clean whites, fresh sneakers, and varsity numbers to bring an interpretation of school days to a crisp minimal brand. While I love the look of a new white and navy palette, I secretly can’t wait until they get dirty to bring them to life.

Look Book Love : Kristine Guico Fall Winter 2014

k_guici_1

One of my dear friends in NYC, Kristine Guico just sent me her fab look book for her Fall 14 line. It’s the perfect mix of 90s charm but with updated details such as leather jackets with corset sleeves and sheer fabrics paired with chunky heels and perforated leathers. Shot by Amy Lombard, it shows us exactly what being a mallrat was like back in the 90s but with a much more hypercolor original wardrobe.

UNIF Holiday 2013 : #TBT1990

LOOK1-1

Cult label UNIF took it back to a specific time in the 90s for their Holiday lookbook. Using the infamous Kate Moss shoot  by Corinne Day from over 20 years ago as inspiration, they knocked it out of the park. No matter how many razor sharp graphic tees UNIF produces their collections always seem to take me back to being in high school with ripped sweaters, babydoll plaids and just the clunkiest shoes you could find. Shot by Aaron Feaver and Derek Perlman, one can only think that these photos were indeed taken during that time and not just a few months ago. Kudos for not only using a time period but a specific shoot in mind when creating this series. Can you get over the striking resemblance that the model Rachel has to Kate Moss? Yeah, I can’t either.
