STOLEN GIRLFRIENDS CLUB - "Hello Country/ Goodbye Nightclub" SUMMER 2012 /13 sneak preview


STOLEN GIRLFRIENDS CLUB PRESENTED THEIR SUMMER 12/13 COLLECTION ON WEDNESDAY EVENING.
THEIR OFFICE HQ WAS CLEARED OUT TO CREATE SPACE FOR 200 GUESTS IN A SEMI-INTIMATE PRESENTATION.

THE COLLECTION, TITLED 'HELLO COUNTRY / GOODBYE NIGHTCLUB'  SEES A MASH-UP OF FLORAL PRINT, CHAMBRAY, CROCODILE EMBOSSED LEATHER, AND NAUGHTY NANA CROCHET KNITS.
IT WAS ALMOST AS IF THE GIRL HAD SLICED UP HER 'COUNTRY BUMPKIN' FROCKS TO MAKE NEW TOWN-DRESSES - THE SMALL TOWN GIRL GROWING UP?

THE PRINTS APPEAR PLAYFUL & FUN, BUT SCRATCH THEIR SURFACE AND THERE'S SOMETHING A LITTLE DARKER LURKING IN THE DEPTHS.
AS USUAL THERE IS ALWAYS A CATCH WITH THEIR PRINTS. THIS SEASON THE FLORALS LITERALLY TAKE YOU ON A TRIP,  CONSISTING OF OPIUM POPPIES AND DATURA FLOWERS.

FOR THE MENSWEAR WE SEE A MEETING-POINT BETWEEN SPORT & STREET.  SPORTY SILHOUETTES IN SEMI-PRECIOUS FABRICS, PREPPY KNITS WITH 'W.T.F' EMBROIDERED ON THE FRONT OFFER A GREAT JUXTAPOSITION, AS WITH THE AMERICAN CREW SWEATER WITH THE SNAKE & FLAMINGO PRINT.

ALSO IMPRESSIVE WAS THE RANGE OF ACCESSORIES, ALL IN THE SIGNATURE PRINTS WITH LEATHER TRIMMING. OH, LET'S NOT FORGET THOSE PUKA-SHELL NECKLACES - DEFINITELY A NOD TO 90'S SURF-TRASH. MOST LIKELY A REFERENCE TO THE DESIGNER'S UPBRINGING IN RAGLAN, NZ (A SMALL SEASIDE TOWN ON THE WEST COAST).

THIS COLLECTION DROPS INTO STORES SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER THIS YEAR.

Stolen Girlfriends Club "Hello Country/ Goodbye Nightclub" will be available in Violent Green stores from September 2012
