In continuation with our Spring/Summer ’13 trend editorials, we present Shampoodle’s The Wonderland Collection! But first, since we were without any knowledge of what fantastic inspiration was behind this extensive collection, we decided to pop on down the rabbit hole with Jakob & the gang at Shampoodle to try and figure this masterpiece out!
Satin pants & jackets, Snake print cardis & leggings along with a very strong late ’70’s rainbow vibe came over us and before we knew it we were singing “Can You Feel It” by the Jackson 5! With no sign of any Alice in sight & upon further concentration of the vibrant melee of pinks, peaches, blues, oranges & yellows all swirled up together we were instantly transported to the sandy beaches of California ~ Hang Ten, Shaun Cassidy, Rollerderby, the movie Foxes & freedom!! This entire Wonderland Collection is in fact a wonderful deja vu of a carefree, wild & adventurous childhood we once had ~ the kind where we literally lived off the wall with zero inhibitions about letting our original sense of style shine. There were no rules then and Shampoodle is bringing back the boogie for boys & girls everywhere!
Skating onto the scene, wide striped tees, skirts & pants echo Rollerderby uniforms of the past. Simple yet right in line with what will be the style for Spring & Summer 2013.True to my midwestern heart and always appropriate during anytime of the year, Black ~ the color that balances it all (alongside white of course!) Mandarin collared shirts present a much more polished appearance yet at the same time unexpectedly casual. Loose-fitting harem-style pants have been on our style hit-list for months now & Shampoodle’s are not to be overlooked!
Now stop!! Two colors ~ Orange & Yellow. Completely co-ed yet constantly being fed to us consumers as For Girls Only. Break the cycle, kickstart the revolution and welcome these 2 colors into your son’s wardrobes this Summer. If this is a new introduction, they will be thrilled to have more than just green or blue to choose from & if it’s old hat, then rock on fashion liberals!
Our trip thru Shampoodle’s Wonderland has now ended but the fun has just begun ~ Shampoodle is giving away TWO of their extremely versatile & oh so fabulous Plum Tracksuits! Winners will choose their size from euro 90 thru 130, Enter below & Good Luck!
