Ganni's capsule collection for caters to the sweet and the sporty x Ganni

Text: Jolene Khor

The collection, named 'My Love Theresa', is inspired by classic American college get-ups

For most, the American college experience conjures images of wild fraternity parties and boring study groups alike, where sloppy sweatshirts, "Save water, drink beer" slogan T-shirts (and its equivalents), old denim with pockets full of lint, JanSport backpacks and Converse sneakers way past their expiration dates are part of the uniform. Not exactly a pretty sight.

If the Danish Ditte Reffstrup, creative director at Ganni, has a say about the matter, the fashion landscape on campus would look dramatically different. For one, he'd imbue the tees with his own cheeky brand of humour. See: Captions 'pop me' by an illustrated popcorn and 'enjoy me' on a Chinese takeout box. To run from class to class, platform sneakers with contrast stitching and micro-ruffles.

While the sweats receive upgrade, we're more in favour of the cerulean blue tracksuit set lined with sporty stripes; if you're going to be cutting a fine figure in a silver striped tunic and pants the night before, it's important to continue your stylish streak the next morning even when you're hungover. And toss your old pilling cardigan — Reffstrup's chunky knit comes with crystal floral buttons.

Should you be tempted to spend the night flirting with the jocks, do it in the red and black lace numbers. Your friends might question your taste in men, but the turtle neck ruffle dress will score their nods of approval.
