Luxury labels are launching street-y active fashion items, nearly as fast as men are buying them. Epaulet’s ‘Bergen’ rucksacks – stitched from buttery pebble-grain cowhide in exotic oyster grey, prove men want functional style for the weekend, and (come Monday) the office. Hello gym/office bag, goodbye boxy briefcase.
This weeks sees the classic bomber jacket get the luxe-touch from J.W. Anderson – crafted from a quilted cotton-blend, with a black leather collar and suede chest pocket for a chic play on textures.
Zanerobe‘s white-stripe-black sweatshirt – with an added hood – is an active style play on casual long-sleeve. Try layering it under a light indigo chore coat from H&M: unlined and relaxed, with a spread-collar and front pockets, for a Japanese twist on the typical denim jacket.
And it’s not just the fashion brands making streetwear look cool. Adidas has (finally) released some monochrome Boost sneakers. These will most likely sell out in days, so you better get on it. Functional fashion isn’t going away any time soon, but the best are being snapped up, quick.
