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.
