Street Style, Horde Studio, and the Denim Resurgence

by Laaibah Amjad

In the fast-paced world of fashion, street style is now powerful force; influencing, rather than being influenced by, both high-end and indie brands. 

One brand on the pulse of this cultural shift is Horde Studio, whose ready-to-wear collection is seamlessly blending the edgy aesthetic of street fashion with contemporary design. And, we’ve noticed a resurgence of denim everything. 

Street style, once relegated to the sidewalks and urban landscapes, has transcended its roots to become a global phenomenon. 

Characterised by its authenticity and the blend of high and low fashion, street style has not only captured the hearts of fashion enthusiasts worldwide but has also become a significant source of inspiration for designers.

Horde Studio has embraced the spirit of street style in its latest ready-to-wear collection, drawing on the dynamic energy from the city life of Casablanca. Featuring bold silhoueIes, unconventional pairings, and an eclectic mix of textures and pattens, it’s certainly bringing something new. 

The brand’s ability to seamlessly fuse street-inspired elements with high-quality craftmanship has resonated with fashion-forward consumers seeking a balance between comfort and style.

A standout trend is the resurgence of denim. Denim is timeless fabric and, with roots in utilitarian workwear, has undergone multiple contemporary transformations. 

From oversized denim jackets with bold paIerns to reworked denim shorts with unexpected accessories, Horde Studio’s take on denim is a nod to the rebellious and unapologetic nature of street fashion.

The denim resurgence is not limited to traditional styles, instead, Horde Studio explores unconventional denim treatment such as patchwork, and tie-dye. 

This departure from the norm aligns with the ethos of street style, where self-expression knows no boundaries, and individuality takes centre stage.

What makes Horde Studio’s interpretation of street style truly noteworthy is its ability to strike a balance between comfort and style. 

Street style, as its core, celebrates the freedom to experiment and break traditional fashion norms. 

Horde Studio encapsulates this spirit, offering pieces that seamlessly transition from the streets to more formal setting, embodying a versatile and inclusive approach to fashion.

As street style continues to shape the fashion landscapes, of denim, particularly in its diverse and unconventional forms, signals a broader trend within the fashion industry. 

Street style is no longer confined to a subculture: it has become a driving force influencing the mainstream, and Horde Studio is at the forefront, translating this influence into a collection that resonates with the spirit of contemporary, dynamic fashion.

Fashion For a Cause: Brands That Stand with Palestine and the history of fashion as a form of Activism

by Oana-Maria Moldovan For over two months, there has been an ongoing genocide war in Gaza. To simplify a long and horrific issue, the situation that started, on a larger scale, around one hundred years ago, and has only become amplified since October 7th 2023. Taking place around the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Israel–Lebanon border, the armed conflict is between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups.  The problem is about “stolen” land. Said land is seen as an important holy part of both religions involved. But really, how holy can we consider a land to be, if people kill other people for it? It’s important to remember that this genocide is about three things: forced occupation, zionism, and religion. It’s also important to remember what ethnic erasure is. This terrible expresion, also known as cultural or ethnic assimilation, refers to the process by which the distinct cultural or ethnic identity of a particular group is gradually diminished or erased, often due to ext

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”. Then, things go one of two ways.  Either a) they decide I am too high maintenance and no longer palatable, or  b) they choose to never look further than the surface and are content to date the idea of me rather than the real me. There is something rather interesting, perhaps funny, about my situation. It is in no way unique. I have met so many people who constantly dealt with the same problem. Even funnier still, is the fact that there is a trope that simultaneousl
