The outfits posted here should be seen as inspiration. I like to encourage everybody to go through their existing wardrobe and look for similar pieces or give old, unwanted pieces a DIY-treatment and create your own version of the looks shown above.
The reason why I chose the designs is that they meet my 'prunkge senses' perfectly. That means the cloths are a combination of early ideas of Grunge and Punk, ideally combined with an old-school Hollywood glamour, which makes you stand out from the crowd. I'm especially looking for quirky, intellegent and avantgardistic ideas. A good laugh here and their is more than welcome, 'cause I really am an advocat for ironic clothing.
