Never mind the fact that we’re still dealing with the aftermath of a freaking SNOWSTORM here in New York City right now…for the past few months, our brains have been in full summer mode, flooded with neon, bikinis, and warm weather dreaming thanks to Spring Breakers. And when we learned last week that Opening Ceremony was teaming up with the film’s costume designer on a collection inspired by the flick (!!!), it made this winter denial even easier and our obsession with the Harmony Korine flick that much more intense. But here’s the good news: we don’t have to wait long to sport these hoodies, bracelets, towels, and beachwear, because the collection officially lands at OC this Friday. Oh, and as a bonus, we’ve got a sneak peek of the goods right here!
As an ode to ~*those*~ wild South Florida scenes splashed throughout the movie, the collection’s designer Heidi Bivens and artist REAS have stamped the pieces with cheeky motifs like palm trees, dollar signs, and of course, that infamous blushworthy acronym “DTF.” If you’re not feeling quite ready to rock eyepopping phrases like “Spring Break 4Ever B*****” on your body (or want to wear them in the presence of adults) there are plenty of other PG options. Opening Ceremony’s bestowed each character in the film a specific symbol, whether it’s dolphins for Brit, a pink pot leaf for Candy, dripping ice cream for Cotty, an inverted cross for Faith or an alien for, duh, Alien. Pick up the pieces for yourself when the clothes hit OC stores and online this Friday, and get ready to live everyday like it’s Spring Break…in your closet, anyway.
