Studs rule our world. We can't deny it. Shiny, spiky, silver studs are some of our favorite fashion details and the more, the merrier, as far as we are concerned. Luckily, the designers behind The Ragged Priest feel the same way-this cult brand is famous for its reworked vintage pieces in amazing tie-dye prints with a healthy sprinkling of studs and spikes. By designing trend-focused collections using core vintage product, The Ragged Priest has quickly established itself in the UK and here in the states as one of the most popular new brands around. Their dedicated team of dreamers set the trend and continue to create unique pieces of clothing that will toughen up any wardrobe. From camo jackets to customized sweatshirts, jumpers and the coolest denim cut-offs around, the beauty of The Ragged Priest is that their clothes suit girls with different styles, because they can be worn so many unique ways.

Nikicio: Mixté Autumn/Winter 2012

Upon conceiving Nikicio:Mixté, the first and notably the most idealistic of the house, contradictions and individuality were the elements at helm. Subversiveness, on the other hand, is developed through growth. The signatures provide a blank canvas to the collection; tailored jackets and trousers welcome the monochromatic picture titled “Ocean Waves”. Silk blouses adapt the deep, magnetic authority of the print with contradictive lightness, blackened suede vests and studs induce strength. The present state of Nikicio, however, proposes clash. Fall/Winter 2012 marks the collection “War” for the house, which has cemented its androgynous virtues. This season, Nikicio renounces it and consumes herself with femininity. A puristic and almost clinical selection of leather jacket, asymmetrical tank and knits in whites and ivories expound further fragility of the collection. A sense of Venus in Nikicio’s private point of view is now completely revealed. The women are willing to go to war, in defense of stance and romance, but most importantly of existence.

Style Doppelgänger - "Clarissa Explains It All"

Whenever anyone mentions '90s fashion trends, Clarissa Explains It All comes to mind. Clarissa's eclectic, fearless style was a breath of fresh air — and much sought after. She was a total expert at layering, mixing patterns, and pushing the sartorial envelope while staying age-appropriate (she even wore printed leggings under her ripped jeans). Her oversize button-downs, funky accessories, and Doc Martens were the epitome of cool — and though it was never clear where Clarissa shopped, I like to think she was a Goodwill kind-of girl like myself.
