Is it just us, or is there a very definite vintage vibe in the air? All around us, we’re seeing a return to all things old-fashioned and classic. Add to that a hint of throwback grunge, and you’ve just landed on Goose Island’s latest autumn fall range. Sit tight… we’re in for an edgy ride!
The Rock Star Effect
You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped onto the fields of a 70s rock festival with the retro styles on offer at Goose Island this season. Yep, we’re going back to the days of printed paisleys and fine daisy chains… all in the name of fabulous autumn fashion. Our range takes its inspiration from the grungy legends of days gone by. Patti Smith, Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde… we can imagine all of the legendary female songbirds rocking out in similar grungy apparel. Of course, our styles are designed purely for everyday comfort with their easy-going edgy chic as our springboard. Get going with this Mocha V-Neck Flower Print Top and you’ll be well on your way!
Next we head back to the swinging sixties! Polka dots and prints, anyone? This edgy style has them both. We’re channeling style maven Twiggy in this one. It doesn’t take much to picture the waifish blonde traipsing down the runway in this Gold Polka Dot Print Tunic. Now if only we could emulate that iconic haircut just as well…
Edgy Meets Vintage
There’s something otherworldly and wonderfully traditional about classic roses, isn’t there? Take this stunning Camel Vintage Rose Tunic Dress. The fit might be relaxed and easy-going but the print adds that quintessential vintage air to it. Thanks to a backdrop of gorgeous camel beige, the swirling motif of classic English roses gives off a modern effect doused in nostalgia. What more could you ask for in a casual day dress?
Then we get to subtle details that take us back to a bygone era. Case in point: high-neck Victorian styles. Our Rust Floral Tunic Top and Scarf will have you thinking you’d stepped onto the set of an old English period piece. You’ll also be bang on trend! The runways from this year’s international fashion weeks were filled with similar vintage styles vying for our attention. Our take on the trend however adds something with an added element of cool. A jagged hemline plus foldover three-quarter sleeves keep this style firmly fixed in modern-day fashion.
