INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
5 STREET-STYLE STANDOUTS FROM PFWM FW19
By Kasia Hastings, January 28, 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 fishing boat steez. It’s a more industrial take on utilitarian dressing that’s kept crisp with some chic color 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, turtleneck 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 grandma'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 technique 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 pants and, finally, a big white furry coat for all-important texture. He adds a scoop of color 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 vest 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. Color is key when you’re introducing this many elements into your get-up, and our hero gets his greens in pretty much everywhere to tie this look together like a pro.
