Those who follow us on Instagram have probably heard us go on and on about how much we love this Seattle band Tangerine. We first came across their music video 'Feel This Way' a while back and it made us day dream about the life one could have had. Yes, we do have a massive obsession of the West Coast and this is one of the versions of that particular life.
Marika wears Conch Coat.
So what would us cats do when we have a band crush? We wrote to them asking if they would be interested in wearing our clothes! And they said yes. We couldn't be happier.
Singer Marika and and Miro (drummer) are sisters, we always love that sibling bonds in bands. They're not strictly similar in style though - we feel Marika's style is fun and cool, but Miro's taste is what we live for; she pushes boundaries and just goes for it. And it's evident in this photoshoot. She's just dyed her hair ice blue!
This photoshoot, shot by Mark Malijan, is meant to be for their press photos and in collaboration with SUPERSWEET x moumi. The girls have selected some pieces from both SS16 (Wish You Were Here) and AW16 (Fame) collections.
It's always unnerving when we let other people take a bunch of our clothes and style for themselves. But we guess when you already pick bands that you like them aesthetically, they are already in synch with you and it usually makes us happy to see they do it in their own ways, merging with their personal style. Plus it's always fun to see things get worn in real life :)
We love that Miro just puts things together her way. Her eclectic styling is always fun and unpredictable. Like how she mixes the blue flower, blue hair, and plays with the metallic from this Piper Top and Cascade Shorts. Totally cool!
While Marika usually keeps things simple and understated, but then she just makes things work so effortlessly! Something we don't see many of the moumi girls do so it's always refreshing to see her interpretation.
Now we wish we could keep dressing bands forever! You should check out their music too. The new EP, Sugar Teeth has some cool songs with great beats. We love 'Better' to death, and we also heard that our clothes are being used in the new video 'Sugar Teeth'. Can't wait!
