I’ve just spent some time perusing the new collection of one of my favourite High Street Stores. White Stuff, and there’s definitely some nostalgia for the 1990s in the range.
This collection is full of chunky layers, winter florals and muted shades that evoke the early 1990s grunge collection of Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis. Long maxi skirts teamed with the cosiest chunky knit sweaters, leggings and boots teamed with long-line knits and thick knotted scarves and pretty dark floral dresses are all included in the fabulous range. There are echoes of early 1990s heroes, from Kurt Cobain in his slightly oversized sweaters that draped off the shoulder,to Claire Danes in ‘My so-called Life’ wearing long floral skirts and chunky knits. But this is White Stuff, so the looks are softened with beautiful, luxurious scarves and jewelled coloured wedge shoes.
Kudos to White Stuff, who have clearly tied the collection in with a current mood in fashion that has seen Altuzarro using early Kate Moss and grunge as one of his Autumn/Winter 2011 inspirations. This is a really cool collection that adds style and warmth to those upcoming chilly days.
