Wherefore art thou, Leo?

Who could forget the pop culture impact of Romeo + Juliet? The 1996 adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic launched the careers of stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Claire Danes, and director Baz Luhrmann. The beautifully stylized deconstruction embraced the romanticism of Mexican culture and the southern California lifestyle.

ASOS’s latest collection draws inspiration from that iconic style that Luhrmann produced. Leather jackets and military coats are emblazoned with hearts and sequined patches with “star crossed lovers” and “Montague” scribed on the back. The collection also features a Hawaiian style shirt sported by DiCaprio’s Romeo and his gang of Montagues.
