FASHION: American Apparel + Nathalie Du Pasquier = Retro Heaven

aa22

American Apparel‘s clothes are a not-so-subtle homage to the retro years, so their collab with artist Nathalie Du Pasquier was a no-brainer.

Pairing graphic patterns and bold color choices reminiscent of African wax prints, she takes relatively common silhouettes (i.e. a classic button up shirt, leggings, a romper) and revitalizes them in a way that screams SUMMER! (or at least respectfully declares it. Loudly.)

I’m in chromatic love with all of them! However, if I had to pick a favorite, I would veer towards the Winie print. You know, the one that looks like a composition notebook. Not only is it black and white (my usual color combo go-to’s), but it’s a definite nod to grammar school nostalgia. Now you can relive the innocent good ol’ days. But without the braces.

STYLE: Margiela-inspired MALCOLM x MARTIN x MANDELA tee isn’t JUST for Black History Month

Another point for Instagram! I came across this tee, and I had to share it:

“I DESIGNED THIS NOT CAUSE IT BLACK HISTORY MONTH BUT BECAUSE THIS TEE IS BLACK HISTORY…WE ARE HISTORY 365 days of the year…Not just one month…” – Corey Williams

Creator Corey Williams (@Corey_DeMon /@Stolickidd ) revealed how it all happened:

I was watching “A Different World” (lol throwback!) and saw a black history shirt with different leaders on it.. So I started thinking, ‘how I can make one that’s not so gift shop-looking and real clean that’s related to fashion.. immediately Maison Martin Margiela popped in my head!! MALCOLM X and MANDELA fit perfectly with Martin already in place.. then I used the month of February as the calendar with the circle around 28 for ONLY 28 days.. The rest is history..
