Wendy Horton supplies a mash up of 90’s retro vibes in Hotel Hangout, her new editorial in the latest issue of Hooligans magazine. Jelly sandals and funky knee socks inject a hefty dose of 90’s SoCal cool that would earn the Cher Horowitz seal of approval. The retro styling is a pleasant counterpoint to the avant garde silhouettes of Cavalier’s SS17 collection, Acid Refluxx, whose bold colour blocking and cascading tulle are fit for an art house princess.
Shot in Savannah, Georgia at the vintage Thunderbird Inn motel, the location underscores the funky nostalgia of the styling and we looooove it. It spite of the shoot’s Deep South locale, however, Horton says ‘ This was the quickest editorial I have ever worked on due to the extreme cold. We would shoot in 5 minute increments and then run inside and thaw out’.
On the genesis of the concept, Horton tells us, ‘I found the Sam Edelman jelly shoes first and took them home with the idea of pairing them with knee high socks. I then reached out to Cavalier Vault and after viewing their look book, it all came together’. As serious Cavalier devotees, we can’t agree more.
