EXCLUSIVE: DIAZ AW 13
Brisbane-based label Diaz’s latest Autumn/Winter collection is toootally high school! Appropriately named “State High”, Diaz pays tribute to the days were scrunchies, sandals and overalls were the latest in fashunz, and those knee high socks your mother forced on you are in fact stylish, not dorky.
The collection has got something for all the cliches of high school’s past, including the geeky nerd, the sports star and the popular cheerleader. Become too cool for school by pairing your new ‘Diehard Denim Backpack’ with your hooded ‘Ragin’ Raincheater’, and don’t forget your new hand beaded ‘Twista Necklace’!
“The collection is a mish-mash of 80's and 90's nostalgia where scholastic shapes meet cheeky teen rebel prints. We see silk dresses with party prints and white printed denims, to metallic embroidery on polar fleece.”
If you, like me, still remember all the lyrics to Miss Mary Mack and still revel in the glory of all your Red Rover wins, then this is a collection for you! The nostalgic prints and fabrics that you perhaps dreaded wearing are now in fact your ally; it’s time to embrace your inner quirky. So whether you were a Heather or a Booger, a Plastic or a Mathlete, Diaz has got you covered.
“State High” is available for preorder now via their website, with delivery expected in March/April.
