Sometimes, love can be great. Other times, it totally bites. And if you're feeling particularly cynical about it all, Lazy Oaf is here for you.
The U.K.-based brand created an entire fall collection inspired by the death of romance. Gathering from nostalgic moments, like receiving valentines in grade school and standing in the corners at school dances, the collection features quippy designs shunning love. Think an oversized tee with a doily-esque heart embroidered with "Messed Up," a tank with a bubble letter "In Your Dreams" print, and teddy bears galore. It also celebrates independence with garments like the pink "Waste of Time" parka, "Introvert" sailor dress, and a massive "No Thanks" smiley faced sweatshirt. And the coats—in pastel paneled faux fur and puffer renditions—are pretty much the only loves you need in your life.
For its lookbook, titled No Chance Romance, Lazy Oaf tapped Tel Aviv-based photographer Dafy Hagai to create some dreamy shots you'll want to plaster all over your bedroom walls, or at the very least, post to your Tumblr page. Check it out in the gallery below, and start scheduling out time to visit Lazy Oaf's site every week to pick up its new drops.
