Obey’s summer ’09 ladies line has crash landed on to their website, with a look that screams contemporary chic rather than just pretty tees and hoodies. Obey are best known for stepping over the ‘safe’ boundaries with their distinctive graphic designs that often hold political views, and messages to raise awareness for specific movements (Obama HOPE and PROGRESS print anyone?) Obey are highly commended for these prints and tees, but you know us ladies also appreciate the softer touch that are seen with the summer drop of city basics and streetwear staples!
Obey’s spring 2009 drop left a great impression on us with their collection of stunning jewellery and accessories (ahem…Chanel-Esq. “Working Girl” Laptop bag), making us yearn for more. Now that their summer collection, phase two of SS09, has launched on the Obey Web Store, the wait is over.
Obey has come through with their perfect-for-the-beach/city-strolling dresses in the form of the “Summer Sunrise” and also “Summer Eyes” dresses – just throw it over the bikini yo! Come twilight, replace the ‘summer in the city’ look and reach for the “Touch & Go” 100% silk charmeuse racer-back cami, with the cute chain heart charm. The rompers are still present and doing its thang with Obey’s summer drop, just as it did with the spring loot, now welcoming the “Phasers” romper to the familio. And, Obey wouldn’t be Obey without some graphic print t-shirts. The lightweight tri-blend “Party with the Posse” tee will most definitely bring the heat for summertime.
Personal drool-worthy items for me are the super trendy, “Olympic 89” crop tee and also the “Rock Me” bag: a mono-toned, graphic printed tote, with a chunky gold chain shoulder strap interweaved with black leather stripping (à la Chanel, of course)…hell yes!
There are a lot more looks and standout pieces from Obey’s new summer arrivals, both clothing and accessories, available on Obey’s online store. Obey’s simple, yet contemporary, designs makes every piece from their latest collection easy-to-wear without missing out on the Obey flair that we have grown to know and love!
