If there ever was a brand fit to represent women in downtown New York’s music, skate, and style culture of the ’90s, it would have to be the iconic streetwear label X-girl. Founded by Daisy Von Furth and Kim Gordon back in ’93, X-girl launched as the women’s counterpart to streetwear brand X-Large and boasted muses (and devoted fans) such as Chloë Sevigny and Sofia Coppola.
While since 1998, the line shifted to more accessible apparel markets that are largely exclusive to Japan, NYC-based post-streetwear label MadeMe is bringing X-girl back with a brand-new collaboration.
MadeMe may have been founded 14 years after X-girl, but both brands are all about powerful statements for today’s riot grrl, offering “for girls, by girls”-designed pieces that create feminine fits for typically masculine styles.
“MadeMe reflects a lot of the same values as X-girl did 20 years ago,” says Erin Magee, MadeMe’s designer and founder, of the collab. “Tomboy aesthetics and riot grrl ideals are at the heart of both brands.” It’s basically a match made in heaven.
The capsule collection consists of 10 pieces, including a reversible puffy jacket with original Mike Mills artwork, a turtleneck that reads “Skate Ravers Suck,” and an overall dress. It doesn’t get much more ’90s than that. The line ranges from $56 for a beret to $338 for outerwear and is available to shop now at MadeMeNYC.com.
