In the new Cheap Monday Fall/Winter 2012 collection, retro aesthetics are masterfully mixed with modern ideas to create a line of casual wear that pays tribute to the past, while re-envisioning those older styles in a contemporary context.

The label focuses on its usual line of elegant monochromatic youth apparel and incorporates a lot of its signature details in this current collection, while the dominant appearance of suspenders and paper bag pants on the runway bring to mind clothing worn in the Depression era.

However, it's the brand's use of suspender pieces and clasps on shirts, sweater arms and pant legs that give this lineup some of its most striking characteristics. If you're looking for an ultra-rad way to update classic styles, then consider some pieces from the Cheap Monday Fall/Winter 2012 collection.
