Pitchfork Street Style… Acid Wash + Shredding

I love the idea of artfully distressed pieces. You know what though, this was a long time coming. To be completely honest I used to think that shredded, distressed, and destroyed clothing was idiotic. Ahhhhh, those were the days when slightly distressed Abercrombie jeans reigned supreme. Fast forward several years and now I’ve come to appreciate distress as yet another fabric manipulation method in the designer’s toolbox.

If money grew on trees this Raquel Allegra dress would already be in my closet…


  1. Pretty sure her shirt is from a fantastic Refinery29 DIY!!

  2. This girl totally dyed these overalls herself. I complimented her outfit when she was in the New England area and she told me she dyed it herself. Thats awesome that you captured her in this DIY outfit!
