Women’s Street Fashion Brand “X-girl” to Release 2017 Autumn Lookbook
06.August.2017 | FASHION
Women’s street fashion brand X-girl will unveil a brand new lookbook for their 2017 Autumn collection over on their official site on August 11th.
Titled X-girl 1994, their look-book this time around will feature a 90s style with all photos taken in New York where the brand started. The photos were taken by young and energetic photographer Jiro Konami, who has managed visuals for numerous brands including VAINL ARCHIVE, WACKO MARIA, Supreme and more.
X-girl was established in the summer of 1994 by Kim Gordon of alternative rock band Sonic Youth and her friend Daisy Von Furth, who also worked at XLARGE®. Kim held model casting to recruit street fashion models back then and managed to hunt down Chloë Sevigny who wasn’t known at the time like she is today.
The new look-book features the ‘it girls’ of the street and brings back to the forefront Kim Gordon’s “girl’s movement” once more for the modern age.
Be sure to check out all of the new autumn looks from X-girl, a brand that continues to showcase real-life street fashion worn by girls today.
