Alpha60 SS 09/10

Recently I viewed Alpha60's latest offerings at RAFW and was incredibly inspired. So this time I'd like to give you a bit more insight into the collections inspirations and aesthetic....

Taking inspiration from the classic Parisian street film La Haine, Summer 09/10 raises the level of sophistication from Alpha60 yet again.

While there are no unexpected bursts of colour, there is a subtle divergence from blacks and greys to muted golds and blues. Menswear presents a strong element of tailoring whilst on the contrary womenswear features jersey draping of varied lengths. Pulling the collection together is Alpha's artistically provocative yet elegant spliced garments and hair inspired digital prints.

If you can imagine the lovechild of La Haine’s Vinz (Vincent Cassel) and Maya Deren- then that's what visually sums up Alpha60's summer collection.

The first drop of the SS collection will be in September with drops continuing through to November.

Hello Alpha60… I love reading your blog these pic are incredible.
I was wondering how you could help me. I’m a very fashion conscious person thanks to your blog and similar others. But in my town I don’t have access to better private label designers. I was hoping you could give me a top ten list or more of your favorite online boutiques that have price points between $250.00 and $1000.00 per item. I love fashion accessories to, so feel free help me get very fashion creative.
All other commenter’s of this blog please contribute your favorite online stores to me as well.
