THE VINTAGE HI-RISE FESTIVAL: LIMITED-EDITION COLLECTION

Blink and you’ll miss ’em. (Like, for real.)

Our (extremely) limited-edition Vintage Hi-Rise Festival collection just landed and it. is. so. GOOD. Designed by artists, this exclusive trio was inspired by the music, art and pop culture of three iconic decades – the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. Each design is limited to just 500 hand-numbered pairs.

And when they’re gone… they’re GONE.

Luckily, we’ve got all the deets on what makes each pair totally unique, the inspiration behind their one-of-a-kind designs AND we even scored some tips from our stylist.

Read on for all the details and check out the entire Limited-Edition Vintage Hi-Rise Festival collection here.

Ltd. Edition ‘70s Vintage Hi-Rise Festival

Picture it… it’s 1977. You’re road-tripping across the country in a tightly packed car, singing along to the radio (yes, the radio – it’s the ’70s, guys) with your friends… And of course you’re wearing your lucky shorts – embellished with the paint splatters, studs, lived-in destruction and colorful patches you’ve collected along your journey.

Ltd. Edition ‘80s Vintage Hi-Rise Festival

Next stop: we’re time-traveling to the ’80s. A nod to early 1980s NYC street culture, this eye-catching design features a bright-white wash illustrated with vivid graffiti-inspired details and spray-paint-like splashes of color.

Ltd. Edition ‘90s Vintage Hi-Rise Festival

Last but not least, our ’90s edition was inspired by early-1990s punk rock and is decked out with metallic-silver embroidery, doodled artwork (butterflies, stars, spaceships, flames – you name it) and statement-making patches.

STYLED 2 WAYS: FEATURING THE ’70s VINTAGE HI-RISE FESTIVAL

Love ’em, but not quite sure how to wear ’em? Never fear! Our lead stylist put together two easy-to-replicate outfits that highlight this free-spirited pair’s best features. Check out her tips and shop each look with the links below!

LOOK 1: WEEKEND WANDERLUST

Let those studs, patches and paint splatters do the talking by keeping the rest of the look simple. A classic striped tank (the cropped silhouette won’t cover any of the short’s awesome details), distressed denim jacket and leather ankle booties make for a go-anywhere, do-anything look that blends retro vibes and modern appeal. Add your favorite sunnies and BOOM.

LOOK 2: FESTIVAL FEELS

We love this unexpected combo of rock-and-roll edge and soft, neutral notes. Play with textures and prints by mixing crochet, metallics, knits, camo… The options are endless! And thanks to this look’s easy layers and comfy-cute sneakers, you’ll be cool and comfortable from day to night.

While every duo was very different, the bond between each mother and daughter was just as strong. In between laughter and, even some tears, the conversations all had one thing in common – love.
