CHEAP MONDAY Fall/Winter 2013

As I informed you yesterday Cheap Monday presented their fall/winter 2013 in Stockholm. Themed Artificial Grunge the collection is based on our collective memory - and the commercial memory - of grunge more than the actual grunge lifestyle. The grunge Cheap Monday has created can therefore be called artificial. The chaotic styling and layering in a seemingly random manner is core in the collection. Lace, football stripes, military details, second hand- like cardigans and 60’s style tops, dresses and shoes are all mixed up. Colours range from bright and dusty whites to washed and solid blacks, with earthy greens and dark plums — a palette significant for the era of grunge as we remember it. To clash with this a bright lime and a washed down black tinted red.
