In a feat of material invention, each piece is perma-wrinkled for a discarded effect. No two pieces are alike.– from Adidas by Alexander Wang.

True Romance with streetwear label THRILLS – Part ２．
If you are as denim-obsessed as we are we found something really special for you. For that, let´s turn the spotlight on vintage-inspired street-wear label THRILLS.
Two iconic lovers, one getaway car and the open road.
And you can Win a Years supply of denim.
Life is about Romance, right? Founded in 2011 the Australian label is known for its raw punk-rock aesthetic and artistic street-edge vibe.

“The concept of this editorial comes from a formulated reflection on how fashion designers and famous brands reacted to the numerous facts of violences and sexual harassments in the world of show business. Many had defined the last collections introduced belonging to a post-Weinstein fashion, where the woman proposed is strong, powerful and emancipated, but yet she has found her body mostly covered in order to be protected.
Reflecting on this we have come to a well different conclusion, never as in this moment the body of a woman must be celebrated and not hidden, our intent through this editorial is really to celebrate in refined and intimate way the beauties of the female body in order to exalt the intrinsic sensuality that it emits.
The editorial has an introspective imprint: it tells of a woman that by undressing herself she rediscoveres the beauties of her body.”
From the collection stood out a dark blue jacket, covered with embroidery made by Maison Lesage. Masterpieces depicting galaxy of shooting stars, planets and zodiac signs. And today the cult piece, called the Zodiac jacket, was auctioned by Kerry Taylor Auctions for £ 110,000.
This collection questions the existence (or lack-of) of the boundary between black and white – right and wrong. Inspired by idols from Ancient Egyptology, this monochromatic collection presents the frequently discussed topic in a new minimal light.
