Read this article in DeutschAt some point in the 90s, it was decided that there was nothing more beautiful than if the clothes looked as if they were on fire. Flame Print, or in German Flammenprint (but that sounds silly, right?) Was born. A rebellious / artistic reaction to climate change, which was visionary? Or simply some endeavored grunge edginess? Probably the latter, but Google doesn’t tell me much about it.
The oversize shirt: Flame print street style
On three different days I present three very different oversize street styles – click here for the big batik sweatshirt on Day 1. Today I wear my outfit with original 90s Flameprint shirt, which I bought on Kleiderkreisel – or Vinted as it’s called in English- (click to my profile there) for a few euro. The saller has pointed out to me several times that the article is a men’s shirt. That is also certainly not my size. Girl, I know what I am getting into. Apparently the shirt has belonged to her husband and it probably is in her closet since the 90s. I met the seller personally in Berlin, because she happened to be right around the corner with me – she was glad to get the part finally sold. However, she was obviously amazed that the customer was not a 150kg computer nerd, who is quite overwhelmed when mom does not go shopping for him, but a young fashion blogger.
I find the oversize shirt just really cool – although “cool” is exactly the wrong expression. Hot?
Street style with patent leather overknee boots
As I mentioned in my previous oversized look, I love it when two extremes meet: to something like sack-shaped and gigantic, I wear the rather hot in the foot. This time, it’s my paint overknee boots, so not someone accidentally overlooks that this outfit is inspired 90s. The velvet choker is also suitable for this. The boots I got from Mango (similar ones are here).
By the way, an outfit pin by Chiara Ferragni brought me to this Flame Print Street Style.
Flame Print Must-Haves
At Sandro there are these beautiful blue jeans with Flame Print on the sides and here are the Custom Vans. The “Blaze Cap” is from The Ragged Priest, the dress with flame print on the sleeves you find at Asos and the top is also from The Ragged Priest.
Above all, I burn (get it?) for the Fire Bucket Bags from Rough Studios:
