It looks like the New Rave movement is making a big comeback thanks to Carrie Mundane, designer of the UK-based fashion label, Cassette Playa. Mundane calls her style ‘aceed sartorialism’, and with a collection using bright neon graphics, it’s hard to disagree with her. Using day-glo colors and pixilated graphics, her designs make you feel like you are living in a computer game. Her latest collection includes heat sensitive sweatshirts and shorts that change color when the temperature rises. I’m also a fan of the oversized silk digital printed tops. They’re light and bright, and perfect for spring. The unappropriately named Mundane has worked as a stylist for bands such as the Klaxons and M.I.A.
