PJ Harvey

7 Catwalk Looks For SS16 That Were Definitely Maybe Inspired By PJ Harvey

The Debrief: She wore something, that I've never forgotten

1. Strapping In

As seen at Joseph. Extra points to PJ for the exceptionally 90s belts used here. Most people would belt either their waist or their hips, but most people are style commitment-phobes. 

 

2. Visible Bras

Actually, her lurex polo is a good shout too, though I'm not sure about that wallpaper. Or go full flasher with a highlighter-pink bosom under a very sheer blouse, as seen at Dries Van Noten.

 

3. Fringing

PJ's cowboy blazer (two words that are rarely seen together) would have fitted right in at Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. Mind the closing doors when getting on the tube in this one, though.

 

4. A Sense Of History

Admittedly, this isn't what people looked like in my GCSE History textbook - if anyone had been wearing this fabulous Alexander McQueen get-up, I probably would have paid more attention, and PJ's is more of a Period Drama loose interpretation - but just imagine these guys sat at a long table tucking in to an apple-gagged roast boar.

 

5. Matching Your Eyeshadow To Your Frock

Not the subtlest of looks, this, and maybe not quite right for daylight, but I think this would go down a treat on a Saturday night. Roksanda's take is slightly softer and, err, more wearable, but obviously Peej looks flawless too.

 

6. All Red Everything

I wouldn't be surprised if PJ actually had a hat, too, but some unimaginative busy body told her it was 'too much red'. Idiot. Osman didn't think it was too much red, did he? 

 

7. Puff Sleeves

Michelin Man biceps are the new cheekbones, you guys. I know it, J.W.Anderson knows it, Popeye certainly fucking knows it. Toot toot.
