This is their final chapter, and now the couple has been reformed. They’ve reflected on their sins, they’ve searched their dark souls and they’ve found a better sense of purpose. A better sense of self.
Somewhere in the sun, somewhere near utopia. A view of the desert without the dust.
The brand’s signature monochromatic palette receives short sharp pops of acid yellow and sky blue which work back perfectly with faded acid wash denim and cactus-florals.
For the women’s line, there is a heavy focus on androgynous shapes. A large part of the collection is shared with the guys and vice versa. The soft rib tank, the oversized NFL-style jersey, and the Kimono are all set to become future unisex classics. Music festival season here we come!
The ‘Acid Rain’ story is our new take on acid-washed denim. Bleached back to white-denim with flashes of dark indigo instantly sparks 90’s nostalgia. The wide-legged high rise jean is our new ‘go-to’ pant for this season, and when it gets too hot there’s a cut-off short that shows the perfect amount of leg.
The oversized trucker jacket finishes off this story - giving new meaning to the term ‘Texas Tuxedo’.
Let’s not forget about Black - our favourite colour! For those that want to stay true to their Rock & Roll dream, there are two super skinny jeans. The women’s ‘Thin Lizzy Stamp Jean’ has a high rise and bold stamp logo on one leg.
The men’s ‘T-Rex Shred Jean’ is a deconstructed super skinny silhouette, worn and ripped and then over-dyed for a blacker than night finish. If a skinny silhouette is not your thing, there’s the ‘Love Lost Pant’. A high-rise suit pant with heavy pleats through the front to add volume, the textured herringbone cotton provides a slightly structured silhouette.
The ‘Ronnie Jacket’ is our all-new leather biker jacket. It’s slightly boxy cut, textured leather and tough zip detailing make this jacket a must-have for the Stolen community. The boys share with the girls when it comes to our Biker jackets and don’t forget, leather lasts forever.
T-shirts have always been a staple for Stolen Girlfriends Club. This season we have a new collection of band-style T-shirts available in different washes and weights, all washed & pre-shrunk to perfection.
On the women’s side there’s a healthy dose of beautiful mesh layering pieces. The bold printed florals look like pieces of fine art, worn underneath or on top for some fun layering options.
Our favourite piece in this story is the cactus flower slip dress, the large scale digital printed mesh is a kind of layering dream. A thing of sheer beauty.
There are two custom fabric prints for Stolen Girlfriends Club this season.
The ’SGC Monogram’ features a heavy midnight rayon base with contrast inverted graphics, including our logo and hand-drawn illustrations. In the men’s collection there’s the ‘Monogram Shirt’, cut in our signature camp-collar styled block. The women get several shapes in the monogram print including a slip dress with chain detailing and the oversized kimono.
Our second signature print is the ‘Cactus Flower’. An explosion of yellow Agave Cactus-flowers completely covers a sky blue base, floating perfectly in a dreamy Viscose crepe de chine. On the men’s side, there’s an update on the classic Hawaiian Shirt which drapes beautifully in the crepe-de-chine.
The women get three great shapes to choose from in the cactus flower print. The ‘Cactus Bloom Kimono’, the ‘Cactus Bloom Pant’ or the cult-classic ‘Acid Doll Dress’ - our iconic dress bought back from the 2011 Archives.
