ERASE AND REWIND | FAN CLUB CLOTHING



I regret not posting these photos when this jacket was full price and actually accessible for you. With the sales hitting the shops it's left it discounted and out of stock, sorry everyone. I'm sure you've seen it everywhere by now though, as I know it's been on everyones hot list these past few months. This short post isn't about the jacket though, as much as it is incredible and deserves to be spoken about. This is in fact my last instalment of my Fan Club collaboration! It's been a hell of a ride, with the help of Kaye Ford capturing their collection pretty perfectly. I've fallen head over heels in love with this brand, the pieces I've shot and styled have become regular editions to my wardrobe, I've worn them endlessly. Finding a brand so true to your own style is rare, but Fan Club have now become my go-to for cool graphic tee's.

Even though I've failed on the jacket part of this post, I still think I've saved the best till last with this Erase and Rewind slogan t-shirt. The colours are what I love most about this one, with the font almost resembling flames, and we all know how trendy they've been this past year! There is something very edgy about this jersey piece, it livens up any outfit and the quote is 100% relatable. We all want to erase things from our memories and rewind back to the good parts sometimes. Even though it's a basic piece it works well with a more extra outfit, like these vinyl trousers which my friends like to call my 'party pants'. Yep these pants have made a name for themselves! I usually wear them on a night out because if you spill a drink you can wipe it straight off, and also because they are simply amazing. This outfit is probably the definition of extra, what with my choice of incorporating vinyl, faux fur and a slight flame motif. But hey, we all know I can be a little extra every so often!

Big love to Fan Club, I adore you guys. If you're yet to check them out then here's where you can do that! I also want to say a huge thank you to Olivia Rose for turning my photograph into an illustraition, you absolutely nailed it!

BEST OF THE BERETS | FAN CLUB CLOTHING


A few weeks ago at the start of my collaboration with Fan Club I mentioned that they've started branching out into accessories (If you don't remember, here's where you can read it). Well, here I am bringing you one of their perfectly me accessories. I would like to say that since shooting these photos, I've lost this beret. I was dancing so frantically at an Anteros gig that it suddenly just wasn't on my head any more. So, this is in loving memory of my dream hat...

It took me a while to fully embrace the beret trend, because (without sounding like a total pretentious idiot) I was wearing berets months back, years even. I'd say around three winters ago they started dribbling into fashion retailers and I was here for it. I'd been a fan since I was younger, having seen Keith Richards and Julia Roberts sporting one back in the nineties I'll never forget the first time I wore mine though, it's safe to say I got laughed at - a lot. Now here we are, everyone and their mothers wearing one. It's not that I'm bitter about it, but it is humorous how you can wear something people hate one year and the next it's actually a full blown trend.

Fan Club have made me fall even deeper in love by creating a beret with a (sort of but not really) similar lightning bolt to the Aladdin Sane logo. Isn't it heavenly? I hadn't thought about wearing a hat with embroidery on before, I've certainly never seen one this cool. That's one thing I love about Fan Club, their completely different and fitting the bill in a lot of ways. I wear band merch every other day, I mean, when you have a retro t-shirt collection of about 50 it's hard not to, but finding pieces that aren't apparel is totally refreshing and something I'd love to see more of.

I'm hoping we'll see more accessories coming from Fan Club, with them nailing the t-shirt game they can only do amazing things with a bag or even more hats if they wanted. If you're yet to check out their product, you can see the full range here!
