While the fashion world’s great and good were getting an exclusive look at Prada and Versace’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection in Milan this weekend, its sharpest and steeziest were flexing on the streets outside the shows. Here’s who we spotted.
MFW MEN'S SS18 STREET STYLE
By Matt Glazebrook, 21 June 2017
Look at King Smart/Casual here, dressing down his navy check blazer with a sunshine yellow Paul Smith T-shirt and sunglasses like dress codes were made solely for his personal deconstruction fun.
Brand clash dilemma! Is this fella’s Reebok Workouts and adidas athletic socks combo A) a sartorial sin? B) Acceptable as they’re owned by the same company? Or C) a non-issue as, either way, they look fresh af with retro denim cut-offs and a SLR camera in tow?
Strong layering from Mr T-1000 Mirrored Sunglasses. Like a style cyborg, sent from the future – via a brief stop in the early 90s – to absolutely assassinate low-key, early summer skate dressing.
What’s fresher than an icy-fresh all-white outfit? Topping that sundae best with an 80s issue, hi-vis yellow windbreaker, of course. Like a lollipop man stationed at the corner of Swag Street and Summery Style Avenue.
Sure, we’ll go wild for a carefully curated set of statement styles, or a head-to-toe getup of hard-to-cop hypebeast brands. But, sometimes, all it takes to impress us is a goofy pun and a cool denim jacket back-print. We’re simple fashion folk at heart.
