Look We Love: Relaxed Slim Denim

With wide legged silhouettes seeing a resurgence in fashion, the relaxed slim denim cuts have become our go-to look this season. From ultra-distressed, slouched shapes to a structured, high rise fit, this is an aesthetic we love in every incarnation.

The A20 Mix

Sensory memory is a fascinating concept. Everyone has a special song that brings back fond memories. For that reason, we are quite protective over our store playlist. In fact, we've had numerous customers ask us to write down artists we have on heavy rotation. A few years ago, we made a mix of some of our favorite shop tunes. The following song by Animal Collective was on that disc and we wanted to share the lyrics.

My Girls

There isn't much that I feel I need
A solid soul and the blood I bleed
But with a little girl, and by my spouse,
I only want a proper house

I don't care for fancy things
Or to take part in the freshest wave,
But to provide for mine who ask
I will, with heart, on my father's grave

On my father's grave
(On your father's grave)

I don't mean to seem like I
Care about material things,
Like a social status,
I just want
Four walls and adobe slabs
For my girls

In the Bubble

Typically, when you hear the term, "in the bubble," it carries the negative connotation of someone who mindlessly follows the crowd without looking outside of the immediate. At A20, we are proponents of people living in their own bubble, impervious to social norms or boring expectations. Melvin Sokosky is one such person, both literally with his bubble series and figuratively with his visionary style. His fashion photography (sans photoshop or formal training!) remains inspiring and relevant more than half a century later. Enjoy.
