Stolen Girlfriends Club’s AW ’14 show, ‘Dirty Magic’, conjured up influences which seemed part punk, part grunge and part goth. Plaid draped skirts fastened with safety pins, velvet floor-sweeping dresses, paisley patterned mesh, and bags emblazoned with pentagrams embodied a modern day reference to ‘The Craft’ if I ever did see one; as eyes appeared to bleed, an effect which was haunting, almost otherwordly.

The girls may have been wicked, but the guys were punk right down to the core; destructive, with a devil may care attitude. They didn’t care that their jeans were ripped at the knees, embracing grunge like it was second nature. Mohawks and unruly hair were a statement, a visual nod to their anti-establishment views, to which plaid and leather seemed to be the perfect accompaniment. Thick winter knits were layered under biker-style vests and jackets, as other elements like zig-zagged looped woollen cardigans and faux fur came into play. The aesthetic was classic SGC down to the very core, rebellious and free-spirited.
