This afternoon in awesome, non-Fashion Week related news pertaining to your wallet and that which may sustain its density but also offer your wardrobe the remedy to an inevitable frigid February inspiration slump: repellers on a budget, rejoice! Nasty Gal‘s Spring collection is on site and ready for consumption.
In true commitment to the trends of Spring ’13, see: excess neoprene, the galvanization of sports-wear, surf-wear, the very early 90s (not to be confused, however, with the late 80s), bathing suits dynamic enough to be worn as swimwear or formal wear and varying shades of pastel, this collection has got everything. Baseball caps, fish net, white construction boots, plastic safety-belt buckles, transparent outerwear, and Ron Galliano zippers. What’s a Ron Galliano zipper, you ask? You know, that thing where a zipper looks like a combination of Ron Jeremy and John Galliano? I think I might need to stop watching SNL. But then again, why in the name of NBC would I do such a silly thing? Long live Bill Haider’s Stefan.
Seriously, though, after a fairly considerable marathon, gawking at almost hundreds of collections these past two weeks which will inevitably beg the question: can I live without food?, it is an utter delight to see a highly stylized, perfectly on trend collection sprout at a price point ranging from $60 to $185. That’s the price point hyper-trends should clock in at, isn’t it? Still true to the Nasty Gal ethos, you will find motorcycle jackets, barely there high waist shorts, little baby dresses, and, full disclosure, guys, even I am facing partiality toward that long sleeve, sherbet cum purple body-con dress, with its white Ron Galliano zippers that all but beg for the kind of trouble I prefer to away from.
What’s that again, though? Ah, yes, well behaved women rarely make history. Sophia Amoruso has evidently had it right all along.
Shop the collection here, and tell me what you think (as in, do you like this sort of commentary on more contemporary wears?) below.
