stolen girlfriends club ss12/13
On a suitably rough night Stolen Girlfriends Club showed their summer collection at their workspace in a converted garage in Ponsonby this week. Called Hello Country, Goodbye Nightclub, (continuing a theme of referencing song titles for collection titles) it was a very floral collection. Continuing with the strong seasonal theme of flowers using two fabrics – one white, the other black – something for everyone. Megan from thread.co.nz on my left loved the white floral – I most obviously loved the black. Throw in chambray, leather, satin, crocheted knitwear (including a bikini) and it was a whole bunch of rock n roll, Vegas Country Girl. The stars of the night (apart from the florals) were the new SGC bags. With overnighters, backpacks and handbags in black stonewashed denim and more florals – they will be on everyone’s wish list for summer.
