Street style is under construction and no one called it faster than Vergil Abloh of Kanye, Off White and Louis Vuitton fame! 🚧
That said, the 90s rave generation trend and the shift in non fashion brand logos being the irony on the streets (hailed by Vetements for the last couple of years) high visibility and protective clothing is currently more relevant than any flouncy, constructed high fashion dress that will be seen sauntering down London, Paris or New York Fashion Week AW 2019.
As a generation of fashionistas try to protect themselves from their uncertain futures, active Gortex inspired utility wear has become the go to in understated relevance? Life imitates art or visa-versa as metallic, reflective, velcro-clad, oversized work-wear has taken over the high streets of cities everywhere.
Layering has ceased, where just a puffer as a shield will suffice, over a cropped top ‘a la Kylie Jenner. Then there’s the camouflage add on which always becomes more relevant when the planet is in a state of war or apprehension. While America builds walls to keep out the Mexicans and Europe is divided, is it any wonder that our way of communicating our unrest is to wear a protective vest?
Great then that the high street is full of Hype-Beast styles to get you ‘battle-ready’. These fierce Dunlop versions are chic and shady at £21 and are bang on if you want to stand out and be protected.
