Pop Ya' Collar

Last Spring and Summer I faded into vision with bleached and acid washed denim, with crinkled and weathered shirts that looked like old western tapestry. But this time around I'm punching some punk into the Summer shirt trend, 'popping' my collar and adding attitude to the jean patchwork. I love the idea of adding 'subtle punk' to a structured and smart look, such as my Topman AAA shirt that has bullet studs taping the collar into hostage shape. 'Punk' can be fun, and Summer is the time to play with the offbeat and erratic flare, adding accessories to an unexpected canvas, and tearing up the conventions. Take the editorial below, where the jeans are carefully attacked and distressed to take a fitted appearance into a werewolf ripped and light-inviting look. I also love the denim jacket that looks like a colourful mosaic of toughness, exuding 'campness with attitude' that I think is such a unique and kooky combination. I think a lot of my tops are going to get a 'DIY gunshot' against them this season...!
