Shawny Sander channels Kelly Bundy
Berlin singer, model and It-girl Shawny Sander puts a 90s twist on her H&M favourites.
If you need inspiration on how to get the 90s trend (that we never seem to get enough of) right, turn your head to Berlin – the capital of retro coolness. 22-year-old Berlin-based musician Shawny Sander just released her latest video Drive, and is the perfect poster girl for grungy chic. We let Shawny choose and style her favourites from H&M’s latest collection, and sent photographer Adam Katz Sinding to Berlin to capture it.
