Michelle Smith of Milly
As many contemporary designers, Michelle Smith, founder of Milly, was also feeling nostalgic for the MC Hammer and Ghost Busters era of the 90’s. She decided to implement this inspiration into her Fall 2013 collection. Michelle wanted the spirit of a matured Punky Brewster to shine. To do so, she merged distinct Americana sportswear with cutting-edge fashion fabrics.
Predominately black and white, this combo brings a certain edginess to the look. Layered mesh and meticulously laser-cut leathers is the highlight of her workout gear, making Milly the epitome of advanced modern fashion.
No outfit is complete without accessories. While these are better used BEFORE or AFTER the gym, it doesn’t hurt to keep on the high note of black and white colour scheme.
The purses and iPhone cases emulate the collection’s style with skulls, shimmer, and spikes adorning the pieces. Matching your accessories to your outfit is not only nice to have, it’s almost a must. It’s a necessary evil to stand out in the gym crowd as you come out swinging your shiny purse, or holding your phone to your ear covered with a sea of skulls.
Simplistic menswear-inspired silhouettes, photo prints, skulls, glitter mixed with wool, leather bombers and overalls make for effortless outfits of her workout gear, infused with lots of style and pizzaz! Pair with some sizzling hi-tops and you’re set to hit the weights in style!
