Great British Culture never really goes out of fashion. That is the case with the new Autumn/Winter collection brought by NEWU entitled ‘The Damned’, bringing back the dark, decadent and gritty spirit of Punk fashion. This collection embraces the people of the controversial and avant-garde scene of LA in the 1970’s taking a huge twist on its meaning.
The technique here brings a darker and unique washed down shade, reminiscent of the serious and rebel tones used by the punk movement. There is also a continuation of the repaired denim trend and the DIY type of look. This collection is all about dark, loose fitted colours that can be matched with wardrobe essentials (like a white shirt), bringing back that vintage look that never really goes away.
Quite versatile too, you can wear your old converse for a more authentic look or even pair it up with a pair of boots and accessorise it with rings, hats and beanies. It’s all very trendy and quite Shoreditch fitting. The rolled up jeans also feature a come-back, so don’t forget to try a longer pair in order to get that detailed look.
As expected from a comeback, this collection has some great fashion iconography that will please people who like to keep it simple, as much as those who enjoy accessorising. Also, if you have got tattoos – they might give the look even more authenticity. Check these pieces out at your key stockists in the UK of high fashion retail like Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Madison USA and Oak USA. With NEWU producing ‘The Damned’, it’s fair to say that your wardrobe will have plenty of choice for the next couple of seasons.
