CTRL’s clothing always manages to breathe new, colorful life into any of our days, and their newest drop – the Fall/Winter ’09 look book – is no different. Inspired by “flowers in the world, people of the Philippines, Miles Davis Quintet ’67” and Johnny Depp’s performance in ‘Cry Babies’ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ (how’s that for multiple sources of inspiration?), the collection is bold and eye-catching… Basically, exactly what we’d expect from CTRL.
So what’s on the horizon for CTRL in their newest batch of eye-popping goodness? In an homage to one of rock ‘n roll’s most famous couples, CTRL drops an I Love Yoko/I Love John (Yoko on the front, John on the back) sleeveless tunic. There’s also a long-sleeve, mod graphic print photo tunic – appropriately paired with black tights in CTRL’s look book for an Edie Sedgewick-esque vibe. We’re also head over heels for the wide-striped hoodie – comfort with a twist.
If you’re itching to know what pieces we’re lusting after at M.I.S.S., we’d have to say it’s the question-mark printed hoodie and Johnny Depp tee. The hoodie is the perfect piece to pair with one of CTRL’s graphic-print leggings (another must-have), which we’d adore on a crisp autumn Sunday. Not much explanation is needed for why we’re loving Johnny Depp’s face on a shirt – but half “Cry Babies” and half Jack Sparrow (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) only sweetens the deal for us.
