The 70s called, they want their clothes back! Though we kid, you can’t deny that Simon Miller‘s newest offerings are just regurgitations of that decade, from the flared denim pieces to the murky brown hues. There’s a difference between being inspired by a past era and outright copying it—in this case, it’s the latter! After a decade in the business, creative directors Chelsea Hansford and Daniel Corrigan are bent on transforming Simon Miller into a lifestyle brand, branching out into accessories and footwear. And with this endeavor, they seemed to have forgotten to design a decent Fall 2019 collection for the brand. What’s worse than this series of 1970s rehashes is that they’re not even the best parts about the said decade. These are just casual basics, many of which are still worn to this day. Simply put, the collection is mundane. We might even go as far as saying that pieces from the high-street likes of Topshop and Stradivarius are comparatively more modern and exciting. And that, unfortunately, is the final nail on the coffin.
