A Serious Reporting on The Season’s Unserious Trends
Brought to you by Copenhagen Fashion Week's finest. It seems like merch tees, hoodies, pyjamas, track pants and Pokémon are all you need in your closet right now.| August 18, 2016
It is official – fashion week street style has taken a huge turn for the chill. Gone are the stiff, pressed lines of pantsuits and frou-frou dresses. Even button-down shirts are no longer formal in all their un-ironed, oversized and carelessly buttoned glory. They say that comfort is key, but now it is truly key, the de riguer for the street style set. As we’ve said before, any excuse to wear our PJs out of the house, we’re game.
Slogan tees of seasons past make way for logo tees, band tees, merch tees and…Pokémon tees? Why the hell not, especially if the Pokémon you wear so proudly on your torso is a rare one. We haven’t seen a pop culture and fashion mash-up that we don’t like. You can’t catch ’em all, but you certainly can wear ’em them all. Can someone pass me a t-shirt with an Articuno on it?
Sportswear for go-out wear is now stronger than ever, with slouchy pantsuits paired with sneakers, track pants paired with suede Gucci pumps and sports t-shirts with pinstriped velvet. (We’ve got the Hadids and Chas Tenenbaum to show you how it is done.) Hoodies continue to be indispensable, looking ever so fine with patent pants and pencil skirts.
There’s no better time then now to wear your denims to the point of abuse. The older those 501s and 505s are, the better. Tuck grandpa sweaters into them, sew little iron patches on them, or cut them up and sew them back together à la Vetements, just for funsies. If you’ve worn your favourite denims to the point of near nothingness, let this compilation of the season’s It jeans be your guide.
Perhaps, the true winner of Copenhagen Fashion Week is the little lady in the striped ‘jammies. You know how they say that wearing your gym clothes to bed makes for an easier morning workout? We say wearing your go-out pyjamas to bed makes for an easier morning anything. How to get dressed in 10 minutes, you ask? How about one minute?
