Wardrobe Staple Styles: The Denim Jacket
Posted on April 09 2021
And it’s this vision we’ve attempted to realise with our pictured outfit, which features the Fluorescent Yellow Political Logo Large Fit T-Shirt and Black Languages Baseball Cap from Balenciaga and Givenchy’s Black Refracted Logo Sweat Pants to round out the look. It captures the effortlessness of off-duty style whilst retaining the adventurous detail and meticulous craftsmanship that characterises luxury fashion.
The ‘rotated patch’ feature showcased in Off-White’s Blue Arrow Twist Denim Jacket is one that we can’t recall ever seeing before on our travels. It creates the illusion that sections of the garment have literally been twisted out of place in a distorted interpretation of Off-White’s established aesthetic. It seems both familiar and strangely unfamiliar at the same time, a sentiment perhaps best demonstrated by the fragmented crossed arrows on the back. This simple and unique technique really caught our attention and further exhibits Virgil Abloh’s visionary talent.
Considering that we tend to buy Off-White with ready-to-go outfits in mind, we’ve decided to keep it in-house once again with this look, which is complete with the White Sprayed Caravaggio Print T-Shirt and Black Diag Pocket Skinny Jeans. It’s perfect for casual meets with friends and urban adventures in the heart of your city.
Palm Angels Blue Logo Print Oversized Denim Jacket has become somewhat of a classic and like all classics, it never loses its intrinsic appeal. Particularly when it comes to denim jackets, sometimes less is more, and with the iconic gothic logo being one of its few defining features, that ideology is certainly not lost on our designer Francesco Ragazzi. However what gives it the edge and, more importantly, allows it to align with Palm Angels’s curated aesthetic, is its oversized fit and shape. Such a design feature ensures that the loungey, carefree attitude of the label translates through to the jacket and deters the wearer from getting too serious with their styling choices. For instance, our pictured look incorporates Palm Angels’ Black Bear In Love Print T-Shirt and Black Fleece Track Pants for an anywhere, anytime-type vibe.
To continue that discourse on wardrobe staples, you simply don’t get much more classic than our latest style: Saint Laurent’s Black Classic Denim Jacket. With its monotonal colour palette and bronze metal hardware, it’s the picture of modern sophistication and elegance. The refined design approach allows for it to subtly adapt to different dress codes, opening it up for consideration in a variety of environments and situations. To really emphasise its versatility, we’ve styled ours with two different outfits. In one outfit, it accompanies the Off-White Embroidered Tunic and Black Coated Skinny Jeans for a monotonal look that would certainly be welcome at any event requiring smart-casual attire. Whereas the second look, which showcases Saint Laurent’s Hawaiian Print Short Sleeve Shirt, is brought to life with an injection of colour that favours the slightly more flamboyant. We’re picturing evenings out at your favourite bars and clubs, where dressing with flair and unique personality is strongly encouraged.
