British model comes up with capsule collection.
BRITISH model Agyness Deyn has teamed up once again with the footwear and fashion brand Dr. Martens for a new capsule collection, the fourth time the two parties have collaborated.
The Spring-Summer 2014 collection blends influences from Deyn’s Los Angeles home (and her British origins) with the classic British street-style brand’s own aesthetic.
Deyn took inspiration from the Californian surf-punk movement of the early 1970s, and also mixed in American sportswear influences including baseball silhouettes, chunky zip and patchwork detailing, and mesh for the line of women’s clothing and footwear.
”It’s great to have the freedom to play in so many style camps with the Docs girl,” explained Deyn. “I was obsessing over the euphoria of summer and found that Docs has roots all the way into the early Venice Beach hardcore scene (very different from the East Coast). The inspiration is extremely laid-back, low key beach rat.”
Key pieces include wrap skirts, and outerwear inspired by a 1930s military classic, the Eisenhower jacket. Deyn has also started her own fashion line, christened Title A and set to go on sale online in March. – AFP Relaxnews
