You don't need to want to wear Cassette Playa
garb to enjoy it. For all the shit the label cops for being loco, there should be just as much praise for designer Carri Mundane
(aka Carri Munden) for not making the same stuff we see on people/blogs all day, erry day.
Munden's inlfuences – '90s skate and rave, anime, animal print, neon – has actually been somewhat toned down compared with previous collections (see: example A
) – which is certainly not to say that this spring.summer 2012 range is dull.
This season the cuts of the attire are fairly (for want of a more appropriate term) traditional; basic button-ups and shorts, but the razzle dazzle is all still there. There are space-themed graphics covering pants and jackets, donut graphics and silk soccer-jersey-style tees covered in fluoro stripes and chairs. (Yes, pictures of chairs.)
More power, Munden.
