A sartorial renaissance is on the fashion forecast...
Graphic shirts are experiencing a revival – with new logos, slogans and tongue-in-cheek texts leading the way. This year it's all about expressing our views through our choice of clothes, so if you don't own at least one tee referencing the global pandemic, environmental issues and social dilemmas or the opposite; hope for positivity, you're doing it wrong. With the Unite Long Sleeve T-Shirt, you can show that you believe in the simple act of unity while also staying comfortable and cool at the same time. The Tres Optimistes T-Shirt is awash with a bright hue and printed with a contrasting slogan at the chest – bringing positive vibes to your wardrobe.
The new utility
With chillier months on the horizon, an extra layering piece to keep your body warm but your arms free might be the best invention to date. Brought back from the fashion world's ashes, the not-so-humble gilet is back in its full force and it's better, comfier and edgier than ever. The Fcuk Lightweight Nylon Gilet is our take on the trend. Constructed from padded panels of neon green and contrasting black blocks, it's fitted with a double fastening and zipped pockets for keeping your keys, phone and cards close at reach. Wear yours layered over hoodies and sweatshirts when exploring urban landscapes to tick both the form and function boxes with layerable appeal.
Whether it's the autumn speaking or lockdown has yielded a steady stream of practical-minded trends, you can't enter the new season without a collection of comfy knits in tow. Don't be afraid to go bold – after all, we've spent much of the past year in loungewear, glued to our sofas and working desks. The Milano Half Zip Jumper exhibits an effortless fusion of preppy and athleisure style with its high neckline, half-zip fastening and colour-block details atop a soft knit body. The Camo Jumper on the other hand, reworks a military-style camouflage print with new proportions to suit the modern gentleman. Both pieces work well on their own as a base for a cool autumn look as well as layered underneath coats and jackets when it gets chillier outside.
