The influence of streetwear on the fashion industry is no secret. And if it was, it was probably the worst kept secret! I’m not gonna lie, that even though I’ve always been a sucker for hoodies, the streetwear wave has certainly hit me hard! In addition to my hoodies, I’ve been swapping brogues and blazers for sneakers and looser lowkey jackets.
I’m not going wholehearted into streetwear. I’m very particular about what I like and what not. Meaning not all streetwear, but neither do I like all tailoring! So what I personally like to do with my stylings is working with contrasts. It allows you to take unexpected turns and level your outfit in a bunch of different directions! I like my style to be undefinable, but with inspirations from traditional menswear and urban wear. Two aspects that may be contrasting. But as stated, it’s that tension that I specifically seek! In this case, it means wearing (loose) dress pants with an anorak, or a neutral field jacket with a bright popping beanie.
A destination where personality and a sense of fashion bond over a negroni. Often, but not always, centered around a specific individual’s journey of style and taste. All to remind that paying a bit of respect to your appearance pays off in regards to your confidence and how your surrounding environment perceives you.
