Introducing Japan-based streetwear label X-Girl, arriving at HBX for the first time ever.
The brand was originally founded in Los Angeles, California around 1994 by Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and stylist Daisy von Furth, with Chloë Sevigny as the brand’s most prominent face. Their first fashion show was held on the streets in Soho, New York, produced by Sofia Coppola and Spike Jonze. The crew proceeded to make clothes for girls, start bands and make their own zines and posters all through the ’90s. X-Girl designs played on classic styles like football and baseball shirts, but reengineered for streetwear girls. It was a like tweak of preppy school uniform for the cool kids who refused to be ordinary. After years of venture, X-Girl had since changed hands and is now based in Japan.
Entitled “X-Girl 1994,” the 2017 Fall/Winter collection is rich with ’90s silhouettes, a nod to the brand’s original history with an anti-mainstream attitude. Take a look at our exclusive editorial and shop the looks here.
