INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
5 STREET-STYLE STANDOUTS FROM PFWM AW19
By Kasia Hastings, 26 January 2019
We’ve seen designers serve up fisherman chic before, but this guy is riding his own style wave with a look that we’re calling minimalist trawler steez. It’s a more industrial take on utilitarian dressing that’s kept crisp with some chic colour choices. This urban angler limits himself to a simple palette of petrol blue, white and black to create a nice clean contrast with his beanie, polo neck and heavy darker cuts.
To some, this fella’s textile ode to da Vinci’s The Last Supper might look a bit like a novelty bath mat you’d find at your nan’s, but to others, it’s a cult piece of streetwear from Japanese brand, Facetasm. Either way, he’s got himself a great statement jacket with some seriously good craftmanship weaved into its high-grade fabric, so we’d hope he’d look a little happier. Special mention here for the contrast stitch on his work pants and his on-point trim. Bravo.
Sometimes there’s nothing stronger than a blank canvas, but let’s not pretend it doesn’t take all kinds of tekkers to wear an all-white outfit like this. This guy has curated a masterpiece of snowy sartorial strokes that deserves appreciation. First up, there’s his logo-iced bucket hat, then there’s his hoodie with contrasting black strings, simple cuffed trews and, finally, a big white furry coat for all-important texture. He adds a dollop of colour up top with a pair of wrap-around shades and some more on his feet with blue fashion-forward kicks. Fin.
This level of layering is exactly the kind of expertise we’ve come to expect from the street-style aficionado. Wearing a lightweight gilet on top of an overcoat is a strong and unexpected move that shows he’s operating on a higher sartorial plane than most. Those who care to join him, take note. Colour is key when you’re introducing this many elements into your getup, and our hero gets his greens in pretty much everywhere to tie this look together like a pro.
