Proenza Shouler & Band of Outsiders

I just came across the Proenza Shouler Pre-Fall 09 collection and the Band of Outsiders Spring 09 collection, and I must say they are to die for! So I just thought I'd share with the rest of the world. Below are some of my favorites from both the designer's collections.

Boot Camp

It is no secret that fashion trends tend to recycle themselves, think eightes leggings and high waisted pants, but just enough time has passed for the nineties to make their return. One of my favorite staples from the 90's, giving homage to 1970's punk, has to be the combat boot. But how to wear this look without looking like Curt Kobain? Take notes from model Agyness Deyn and Doc Marten poster girl, Daisy Lowe, who both walk to the beat of their old style drums. Aggy pairs them with and girly dresses, while Daisy keeps it simple, letting her neon kicks take center stage, pairing it with black pants and a vintage tee.

some of my favorite boots include

Studded Vintage Combat Boot

I know I have mentioned these previously in my post about studs, but I really do adore these boots, they are the epitome of the perfect combat boot in my eyes.  Vintage leather combat boots with brass or silver stud detail throughout. Stud design and laces may vary as they are vintage and done by hand.
