strummer ss09

Thought I would celebrate the first day of Spring (yes Spring, I’m in the Southern Hemisphere remember) with a fun Spring/Summer collection.

Usually I don’t believe in random acts of pantless-ness (or even planned pantless-ness). Well, it’s more of a briefs/underwear in place of pants phenomenon, but for the sake of this post, pantless-ness is much catchier. So every time I see a picture of Lady Gaga with no pants on, or even when I see pictures from editorials that feature no pants, (such as that Vogue editorial) I cringe. However, there is always an exception to the rule, and today I’ve found it in the form of the above looks from the Strummer SS09 lookbook. I think this Aussie label is quite fast becoming one of my favourites, check out my post on their AW09 collection here. Anyway, I’m totally finding the no pants look appealing here (well, they’re called “Mini Suit Shorts” so I guess technically they are a form of pant). Maybe it’s the fact that they look less like underwear and more like cute, boy-leg short shorts rather than the hi-cut, bare-all briefs look a la Gaga. Whatever it is, I’m loving the laid-back summery vibe of this collection.

Below are some more of my favourite looks from the collection, titled “The Howling Sun” (and some more pantless-ness, lol):

P.S. If you actually read that whole rant/ramble about pantless-ness, I applaud you.
