Bitching & Junkfood ‘Remade’ Spring/Summer 2011 Look Book

28 June 2011, 19.24 | Posted in Denim, Design, Fashion, lookbook | 1 comment »

Eliza Doolitle

London-based design duo Bitching and Junkfood launched just a year ago, and by heck have they come proper yet again. Doing it their way has seen the project grow to include collaborations with big name U.K. retailers such as Urban Outfitters, as well as two in-house labels one of which is Remade. The label is heavily influenced by blog culture and looks scooped off the streets surrounding their East London studio. Their Spring/Summer 2011 draws heavily on 90s rock and death metal trends for inspiration–which us Snobette’s adore! Their Remade Levi’s Bitchy shorts already have a cult following, as seen on the lovely Eliza Doolittle (above via Ohhlalook).

Each pair of the high-waisted shorts, are cut on the body to guarantee a flattering fit (wave goodbye to the camel toe!) and they use only 501 for girls to ensure a consistent fit. This season sees the basic style advanced and made somewhat more playful by introducing suspenders, fringing, feathers and bleaching. Jackets and shirts are adorned with rivets and eyelets and rock tee-shirts are re-cut with mesh panels. Everything is handmade in their Hackney East London studio, with every piecea one off so the coast is clear from the masses.  More goodies on flip! –Danity Blame.

Lirfons ‘Sound Of Rain’ Jacket

Highsnobette-Lirfons SOR1

One of the reasons why the Snobs adore independent designers and young labels is because they put it all out there fabulously. This “Sound of Rain Jacket” by the talented  Maldova-based Lirfons we cannot ignore. At first glance the look can be seen as conceptual but on closer inspection the thick activewear zipper and elastic cuff translates into a street sensibility with an avant-garde edge.

Painting the picture of the womem we imagine wearing–it ranges from Snobette style  faves Stella Tenneant, Tilda Swinton, Rihanna  to of course Melody Ehsani. In my dream in which the big brands go all the way with design, there’s a  collaboration with Lirfons , this jacket has a swoosh, a Jumpman  or three stripes somewhere and my heart stops . You can see it in more angles on the flip, and  please take the time to look at many more heart stopping  (Billberry and Black Puma) jackets here.
