The ladies at M.I.S.S. first met Erin Wignall, the women’s designer of Obey, back in February 2009 at the last M.A.G.I.C. trade show. Having had a taster of what Obey had to offer for Fall/Holiday 2009-2010, M.I.S.S. now brings to light detailed looks at pieces from Obey’s amazing Cosmic and Military Nautical themed collection, which were seen at this months M.A.G.I.C. trade show.
The Cosmic themed part of Obey’s Fall/Holiday 09-10 collection are based around dark, androgynous, and punk rock looks. This is a look that is oh-so-popular at this moment, a look which has been incorporated into the styles of many of the world’s favourite bloggers! Obey’s motorcycle inspired leather jackets will make you that stylin’ bad ass bitch; a perfect look for those cold winter days! With details like the quilted leather, big, leather bounded buttons and the pre-sewn in hoody, Obey’s selection of leather jackets really do stand out against the masses that are already flooding the high street.
The Military Nautical themed collection on the other hand, has a much neater and clean-cut finish to the pieces. The silhouettes and cuts of the pieces are softer, giving it a more feminine feel, even though pieces are inspired by the rather masculine military look and touches of French nautical. The use of the big buttons on the leather jackets has followed through to the detailing on to a beige, military style jacket bringing the two different themes together for fall/holiday 09-10. The obvious Navy-inspired, striped white and blue, deep v-neck sweater is a wardrobe necessity for the cold winter days, a simple item perfect for layering! Other winter-wardrobe staples include the loose fitting, lightweight, cotton t-shirts. Feminine accents on traditional military style and shaped jackets, such as the twisted collar on the gray, double breasted jersey cardigan, gives classic styles a fresh, new, trendy lease of life.
As these two themes are so far apart on the spectrum they are sure to attract the tastes of all the females out there, making sure no one would be without a need and want for a piece of Obey action! Which pieces do you love, how hard will you be rockin’ it this winter?
