Adam Selman AW15

John Waters inspires a gang of retro bad girls, skipping school to hang with their greaser boyfriends

Initial reaction:

‘Spoiled’ – Anna Nicole Smith’s court appearance slogan tee becomes the manifesto of a 60s-inspired girl gang.

School’s out:

Drawing inspiration from John Waters’ cult flick Female Trouble, Selman’s brassy AW15 collection was a love letter to retro teen rebellion. On the runway models leaned against a chainlink fence like the bad girls at school – think hiked up skirts, smuggled in cigarettes and a rendezvous behind the bike sheds with a greaser boyfriend – Cry Baby’s Wade Walker, perhaps? 

Good girls gone bad:

Much like the Pope of Trash’s leading ladies, the beehived bad gals owned the night in seductive knitwear and dark gingham separates, topped off with cat-eye shades. The Dazed 100 readers’ favourite, NYC-based actress Hari Nef, walked amongst the tribe of temptresses with a “dare to mess with me” snarl.
