For years now, So-Cal’s Crooks & Castles has dressed men with the tough attitudes and style needed to storm the streets. While the label has always been concerned with the rugged and masculine, it brings a new level of intricacy to the women’s collection this Spring, injecting the same cool, unapologetic and ferocious attitude fans adore in the men’s line into the women’s line. The women’s collection develops upon Crooks & Castles motifs such as the “double C” logo that stamped the men’s pieces and rework the same luxury meets street meets sportswear aesthetics into the ladies’ items. Varsity jackets are cut shorter in a tighter fit, jeans are nonchalantly ripped and tees feature opulent jewelry themed graphics reminiscent of Versace and Jean Paul Gaultier designs in the late noughties. Some interesting pieces include a cool black voluminous flared hooded poncho branded in the back with Crooks & Castles logo graphics and skin-tight stretchy shorts in an all over geometric print redolent of Goyard’s designs. Leggings are reworked in bandanna prints and all pieces are meant to be worn with lots of embellishments, generous amount of jewelry and even more attitude. Look out for the collection at select Crooks & Castles retailers.
