Karen Walker once called her collection ‘high-casual’ and it got me thinking about this contrast, something that I relate to because I’m very much attracted to the juxtaposition of a casual piece with something dressy. Then I was inspired by Norma Kamali x Everlast’s new range of grey jersey sportswear with a twist. All of this was festering in my head and I came up with this…..
American Apparel grey hoodie, vintage cream puffball dress, Nike hi-tops // Kulture silvery grey draped top, grey jersey puffball skress w/ satin lining, Topshop dropped crotch grey pants, YSL taupe platform heels
Lux sleeveless sweatshirt top, H&M white longsleeved t-shirt tied, vintage sheer petticoat, cream footless tights w/ bows at ankles, white leather Converse lo-tops // Grey and black headband, Uniqlo grey t-shirt, Moschino Cheap & Chic grey cotton corset top, Tashi dark grey skirt/trousers, Bloch ballet flats
H&M white long sleeved t-shirt, grey layered mesh top, grey jersey skirt, grey cotton legwarmers, Azona grey suede platforms // Preen grey jersey hoodie tied, vintage New York Mets t-shirt, TS Boutique tulle tutu w/ frayed edges, sheer grey tights, white leather Converse lo-tops
