United Constructions SS12/13 Lookbook
It’s pretty rare for a street wear label to leave me lusting weeks after I’ve seen the collection, but the United Constructions SS12/13 collection has done what many labels fail to achieve, and have created the perfect mix of glamour and grunge.
Their latest collection strays away from traditional catwalks trends and draws inspiration from everyday objects, experiences and cultures to create unique pieces that distinguish the labels loose fitting and edgy aesthetic.
My favourite garment from the collection is the pink chair shirt dress (pictured below). The uni-sex piece echoes the essence of United Constructions and is an innovative take on the grunge trend that has so desperately needed rejuvenating of late.
All pieces have a unique twist or drop, and while the colour palette follows a predominately grey aura, there is a splash of fuchsia that resurfaces throughout the collection. United Constructions bring a child-like fun and playfulness to fashion that contrast their seemingly basic designs. It is upon a closer look at the collection that you realise how beautiful and unique they really are.
By adding a long drape to a simple striped tee (pictured below), the label manages to add an extreme cool factor to piece and gives each garment an attitude of its own.
