It’s like an inescapable mathematical formula that whenever something new comes out from Nasty Gal, we can expect the items on our wishlists to instantly grow in numbers. Now that San Francisco-based Camp Collection has teamed up with Nasty Gal for a vintage-infused summer 2016 collection, we can finally have a more complete and overall all-round look at the main spring/summer 2016 trends and must-have staples. The capsule collection is already available for purchase at Nasty Gal, and we can’t stop amplifying our wishlists!
The Nasty Gal x Camp Collection summer 2016 line-up celebrates a vintage kind of fashion that directly draws inspiration from both San Francisco and the Seventies, and we can rightly state that the combination of these two always leads to perfection. The collection also features some subtle, yet quite strong Nineties influences, which inject an overall ‘girl power’ attitude to many of the ensembles, not to mention the collection’s campaign itself.
To better represent the line-up’s free spirit, both Nasty Gal and Camp Collection combined purely Seventies-inspired staples with more modern and fresh designs, which could be worn with either a total Nineties-approved look or a more casual one. From rainbow details to cool smiley patches, everything makes us travel back in time all the way to the late Sixties/early Seventies, when living in San Francisco meant being exposed to revolutionary ideas we still celebrate and cherish.
The first thing that comes to one’s mind while browsing through the collection is that the line-up greatly focuses on tees, to the pleasure of those who can’t have enough of iconic (and ironically cool) cotton t-shirts. It’s in their prints and patterns that we can find the collection’s true essence, as they include everything from music-related references to inspirational mottos (‘Babes and Beers’ is my absolute favorite one).
If inspirational quotes are not right up your alley, and you would rather embellish every single part of your t-shirt, consider buying all of the collection’s patches and get to adorning and customizing all of your denim jackets. In the same way, if you are hunting for a motivational bodysuit, the Nasty Gal x Camp Collection has plenty amazing designs to cheer you up this summer.
Bell-bottom cropped jeans are, of course, available too, and they come both in high and low-waisted silhouettes. Meant to be matched with the knit tops and striped tees, they are however not the most ‘San Francisco in the Seventies’ thing in the collection. Actually, the lookbook also introduces us the short rompers with dockside halters and contrasting hems that will give you the perfect ‘summer in San Francisco’ look when paired with any kind of white sneakers. Other west-coast-approved outfits include total denim jumpsuits, curve-hugging short shorts with high waists, fringed jackets and, of course, fancy aviators sunglasses, also known as the ultimate Seventies-inspired accessories.
