OUTFIT OF THE DAY
#1,192 FRANK OCEAN’S STRIPY STEEZ
By Matt Glazebrook, 5 June 2017
‘Maintain the Mystery’ isn’t just a T-shirt slogan for Frank Ocean, it’s a way of life. Happily, though, the enigmatic R&B singer has been letting the mask slip a little of late, venturing out of the lab to give us some sneak peeks of his strong summer style.
The best place to catch a glimpse of the lesser-spotted off-duty Ocean recently has been New York’s SoHo shopping district, and so it proved again late last week, as he picked up a few bits with fashionable pals Kendall Jenner and Luka Sabbat.
The casual key to Frank’s Friday 'fit was a retro-striped tee from streetwear label The Hundreds, with an embroidered ‘Maintain the Mystery’ logo front-and-centre and an on-trend tuck-in. So far, so SS17. But a well-chosen supporting cast really elevated things from modish to must-have, including a new pinkish hair-dye job which subtly tied in the reddy-brown palette of his top, a worn-in brown belt, indigo straight-leg jeans and all-black canvas kicks.
