All About Recycled Love at Dirty Pineapple Spring Summer 2020 during New York Fashion Week
Dirty Pineapple is a Shanghai-based clothing brand founded by Elsa Zai and Nellie Wang in 2016. For their Spring and Summer 2020 Collection, presented during New York Fashion Week at the beginning of September, they bring us relaxed streetwear pieces with a quirky and modern twist, all in the light of sustainability and fighting climate change.
‘Recycled Love: Leave What No Longer Serves You’ consisted of a mixture of monochromatic looks and full-on ensembles in wild prints of faces, flowerpots, tie-dye, butterflies, and snakeskin. Different shapes were mixed, ranging from mustard yellow and crispy white over-sized blazers and stylish black trousers to sweatshirts with unfinished hemlines, cropped hoodies and velvet and metallic sweatpants. Inspired by different cultures and times, you see vintage as well as futuristic elements.
The hair and make-up looks supported the running theme of the collection: the freedom of ultimate self-expression. Pink pixie-cuts, seventies styled sunglasses, black lips, bright purple eyeshadow, and chain necklaces all added to the overall feel of the show. Dirty Pineapple’s typical lounge suits were often combined with casual white sneakers, thereby fusing classic styles with high street fashion.
These show-stealing outfits convey the message of how the reinvention of one’s self can go alongside wearability and sustainability. A strategic detail from the collection is the fact that everything is unisex so that everyone can wear everything. This approach is part of their “quest for a gender-equal world in an unequal driven society.”
