Tie-dye, the Isabel Marant way

I haven’t posted for a while but that’s cos I’ve been tending to various life upheavals. And just playing The Sims loads. That’s a lie.

Anyway. Let’s get the ball rolling again and celebrate the fact that tie dye is back in fashion for this summer.

Celebrate?! Yes I was horrified too at first, because don’t tie dye t-shirts share wardrobes with ‘Fairport Convention’ jumpers and cheesecloth skirts? Yes they do, but that was before Isabel Marant tie dyed her S/S 12 collection and made it look really cool (minus the football jersey tops). So now tie-dye can share wardrobes with peplum dresses and metallic box clutches, and that’s fine.

…Obviously I can’t afford the above, so I’ll be moving in on the below instead:

100 Years Of Style In 100 Seconds

For those of you that haven’t seen this already…. it’s Westfield Stratford’s 100-second ‘100 Years of Style’ video to commemorate their grand opening. Ahh those 90s rave sneakers – gorge.

I love this BUT do kind of wish it had been done all in the same place so that the focus is 100% on the clothes. What do you think?
