Pretty Little Thing x Karl Kani – The Streetwear Collaboration We Never Knew We Needed

Karl Kani; a legend. If you asked me about five weeks ago who Karl Kani was, I unfortunately would have simply responded with a blank stare. But today, on March 25th, two days after his collaboration sold out with Pretty Little Thing, I would be gushing with facts about this Brooklyn native who contributed heavily to what is today widely recognised as 90s fashion. Known as one of the founding fathers of urban streetwear, Karl Kani started something in the late 80s that today, even in 2018 is still just as fly as it was back then (can I even say ‘fly’ as a British person?)

Karl Kani Black Leggings – £15 (Worn underneath to show waistband)

Public Desire – Alia Perspex Heels – £29.99

Having been raised in England, the likelihood is that sadly the majority of you may not have known too much about Karl Kani. However, thanks to Pretty Little Thing, his style and colourful materials have been brought to the mass market. PLT have been killing the game recently with their affordable on-trend fashions! Honestly, as far as I’m concerned, this is their best collab to date!

Consisting of up of 41 pieces of 90s wardrobe staples, the collection has everything from denim jackets and Fresh Prince of Bel Air era style colourful unitards to baggy trousers and baseball dresses. Prices range from £10 to £35 so the great news is that the collection is super affordable too!

    I remember Karl Kani as I grew up in the era of jersey dresses and that tee shirt dress is giving me those kind of vibes. I love this whole collection. I’ve never heard of Pretty Little Thing because I’m in the US but it seems like my kind of shop. These looks are giving me life.
