Playing with polar opposites, the Vice 'Glitter's Fun for Girly Thugz' editorial showcases pieces by British designer Tamina Navaei.

Lensed by photographer Christina Smith, the garments by burgeoning designer are featured with model Luisa sporting her signature brand of boyish womenswear. Navaei draws inspiration from American teen culture and her Iranian cultural background. This combination makes for garments in oversized shapes with masculine silhouettes. The added twist is the girly emphasis in the clothing that is referenced with the textures and exuberant glitter motifs.

According to Vice, "her influences include...Wu-Tang and Courtney Love's school of sparkly grunge." The grunge, glitter, hip-hop and Iranian themes may seem chaotic, but the result is wearable pieces with an eclectic allure that modernizes notions of girly style.
