Juicy Couture Tracksuits : A Museum Exhibit?!

The famous Juicy Couture tracksuits are now a museum exhibit – yes really!

Don’t throw out that old Juicy Couture tracksuit just yet!

Back in the good old days, the non so distant “noughties” aka 2000s,  Juicy Couture jogger suits were the absolute ultimate in lounge wear. All the cool girls wore them, paired up with the Juicycouture charm bracelets and pink velour tote juicy bags. But now, curators at London’s Victoria & Albert museum have a new purpose for the once vogue leisurewear…… a museum exhibit!!!

While, Juicy’s colourful tracksuits are currently making a huge coming back on the fashion scene, they have also just become part of the V&A’s “Underdressed: A Brief History of Underwear” exhibit, as an immortalised part of fashion history. The iconic Juicy Couture piece however is in good “fashionable” company, by being joined by the likes of Kate Moss’ famously see-through Liza Bruce dress along with pieces designed by Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Vivienne Westwood and more. The exhibit is running right now – until the end of this year. Will you check it out?

While the Juicy Couture tracksuit may be a museum piece, as we have mentioned, the tracksuits are currently undergoing a huge revival, with Juicy relaunching these for AW16 under the hashtag #Trackisback

Juicy Couture has become an iconic brand and their velour tracksuits are not only super comfortable, but also downright unforgettable. Because who could possibly fail to remember Amy Poehler’s pink terry set from Mean Girls? (She was always the cool mum). Paris Hilton was practically the poster child for the suit set back in the day, as was her pal Kim Kardashian. Even Britney Spears, Eva Longoria and Vanessa Hudgens were all big fans.

Even Kim Kardashian mentioned Juicy in her own blog, this week

When I look back at old photos, I can’t believe some of the outfits I used to wear! I was SO obsessed with those classic Juicy Couture tracksuits a few years ago, and had them in every color. I still have all of mine, I can’t let them go LOL! Vogue.com just featured me in a story on the possible comeback of this look, so I thought I’d share this epic fashion throwback with you guys!

Brand Watch : The Laundry Room Clothing

The Laundry Room has arrived at Spoiled Brat

The Laundry Room : Another brand from the USA is at Spoiled Brat!

Just in, a brand new brand from the USA! The Laundry Room is a brand which caught our eye for their quirky slogans and designs and the extremely high quality of their product.

So who is The Laundry Room? Well the brand is the brainchild of two brothers, Jonah and Joey Pauline . From an early age, their creativity flowed on collaborative projects. Their mother was a true artistic talent who left behind journals of their West Coast adventures, full of illustrated sequences of their days at the beach, where they collected sand dollars littered on the shore during early morning low tides—loosely metaphorical for their future endeavors. Their life includes evenings of their father strumming his acoustic guitar, playing songs by ‘70s folk legends, rather than traditional bedtime stories. Their summers consisted of creating anything that caught their attention, from building hidden crawling paths disguised as stacked boxes in their laundry room to digging bunkers underneath their backyard deck, not to mention crafting zip lines into their pool.

This childhood theme of creating together continued to their teens and on. “Scrappy’” and “nostalgic” have always been appropriate descriptives of the brothers. They would occupy themselves by experimenting with unconventional business ideas, such as removing mistletoe from neighbors’ trees then packaging and selling that mistletoe to other neighbors as Christmas decorations. In their early 20s, they achieved their long-time goal of opening a premium clothing boutique. Seven years of retail would set the foundation for their ultimate goal of creating something to share with the world.

Some twists and turns in their assumed life path led them to see their creation come to life. They had been preparing for this from early childhood. It would become a balancing act between both idea and execution. Their very first collection felt an immediate embrace by retailers and influencers they had respected and followed for years. As equally gratifying was the response by the family of boutiques worldwide. It was then that The Laundry Room was born.

Today, The Laundry Room is the evolving expression of never ending soul searching. It is the findings of existential research coupled with childhood nostalgia. Always aspiring to bring a fresh perspective to those around them. Never giving up on skepticism. Always trusting in the good. The Laundry Room will always reflect these beliefs. They challenge all to find their private road of wander and to have an ever-evolving world.

Our UNIF “BOB” Tee featured by Kayla Hadlington 

Our UNIF Bob Tee is featured on pink haired fashion blogger, Kayla Hadlington’s latest fashion post #ootd

We are loving our UNIF tee styled up in blogger Kayla’s latest blog post. In her own words she says of this  quirky top :

 “Bob is such a great name, as is Fred, and Dave. Don’t you just love names like that, the sort that you give to a pet and think its funny because they’re such normal human names, I’m sure you know what I’m on about. Everyone, especially my boyfriend, has been calling me Bob since I’ve acquired this tshirt which is quite amusing. Also how cute is this two tone skirt? I loveee it, I’ve been wanting a new denim skirt for ages and this one is perfect, the fact one half is shorter than the other makes it the perfect length for me- normally I find skirts too long and make me look like a thumb, unless I buy petite, which I’ve noticed theres been a rather large influx of expanding petite ranges recently, isn’t that fab????!

We love it and we love how she has styled this cute retro style unif tee with a cute denim mini skirt, pop socks and some white trainers. This U N I F t-shirt comes in thick fabric and had a blue collar trim and slogan “Bob” embroidered on the front. Its very cute and girly and so versatile – you can dress it up or dress it down as you chose. UNIFClothing is great that way, all their pieces are easy to dress up or down.

UNIF is a great exciting brand, and its a brand to have fun and experiment with. Be fearless when you wear it. You style it and everyone who wears this brand, makes it their own.

The good news for you is that this quirky Tee is on SALE right now in our legendary online UNIF Sale – so grab it QUICK
