Bustiers, leather fringe, ripped denim, and maxi skirts, all done in sun-baked, earthy hues like ochre and rust, make up the majority of Evil Twin‘s new S/S ’12 lookbook. The overall feel can only truly be captured by a weekend at Coachella (or a slightly more gothic Woodstock), but we think the Aussie brand is as close as you can get to a sun-beaten desert without booking a plane ticket to California.
With names like the “Joplin” and “Brown Sugar,” Evil Twin isn’t trying to hide where their inspiration comes from. Think rocker meets hippie meets cowgirl, and anything that would help you get in touch with your wild side. If you need further explanation, we can put it in clearer music terms for you – they’ve dubbed the lookbook “Black Magic Woman,” after the 1968 bluesy rock single from none other than Fleetwood Mac.
