Giving a "headbanging nod" to the "nasty nineties" comes Stolen Girlfriends Club's SS14 collection entitled 'Rouge Wave'. As the Australian-based designers explain, "The story starts with a psychedelic pineapple and makes its way through fight clubs and fishnet, channeling Venice Beach and surf punk in a way that can only be called Stolen-style."
This youthful collection includes checkerboards, patterns dominated by a pineapple-marijuana hybrids, all denim everything and outfits created out of black and white mini-mesh. Match pineapples with pineapples with denim with tee shirts and wrap it all up with a shirt that screams "Hawaii Mohawks". Grab a checked scarf and a white mesh hoodie to stash in your pineapple tote and you've got yourself a collection. The pieces remind us of a free spirited 90's kid hopping from the streets to the boardwalk and then wrapping up to the right with a visit to the underground scene. It's innocent rebellion while being and playful and cool. Click an image to start the slide show and check it out for yourself.
