One of the keys to fashion success in LA is knowing how to mix new pieces with vintage looks, which is something that What Goes Around Comes Around owners Seth Weisser and Gerard Maione have a lock on. The brand celebrated its one-year anniversary in Los Angeles last night with a party and a sneak peek at their fall/winter 2010 collection. The shop, located at Space 15 Twenty, featured a model installation of eight looks right inside the front door (creating a bit of a challenge to photograph amidst the crowds coming and going and also trying to snap photos). There was a lot of flannel, buffalo plaids, leather, furs and short skirts. Although we waited around till the end, the models never changed, but we did manage to grab a newsprint lookbook of the fall styles, which is sort of the next best thing to seeing them in person.
After we enjoyed flipping through the rack of vintage YSL jackets and skirts (there was a red leather one to die for), we spotted Taylor Jacobson, Olivia Munn and Peaches Geldorf making the rounds in the crowds, as well as some men and women wearing faux-fur animal hoods and one girl (Audrey Kitching) dressed as Pebbles Flintstone. So does this mean that fashion has gone around and now come full circle back to caveman times?
