Warriors Come Out to Play-aay

Alright now for all you boppers out there in the big city all you street people with an ear for the action…Skaist-Taylor’s spring collection is outa sight, real groovy ya hear? The founders of the label that has become synonymous with the word “JUICY” emblazoned on women’s bottoms is taking a new more grown-up, hippie-chic approach for their eponymous couture line. Think shaggy feathers, gritty lace-up tanned leather, knee-high sandals, rock-star shearling, crocheted hippie tunics, peasant tops, Macramé halter top, crochet, tye-dye cotton, a tough leather jacket {which adds grunge to a white sundress}, vaguely-slutty slip dresses, retro piped- blazer/mini skirt combo, flared trousers and groovy short-shorts. Yep Skaist-Taylor will most definitely transport you to Funky Town, via the Q train of course. WWD describes the Steven Tyler-esque, boho-chic aesthetic as being very “Witchy Woman” (The Eagles), I totally hear that, but I think the look has a distinctively gritty retro appeal that is less “Witchy Woman” and more "Coney Island Warrior".

Be lookin’ good, Warriors. All the way back to Coney. Ya hear me, babies? Good. Re-e-al good. Adios ~ D.J. {Warriors}
