Welcome to Cool Pants. Here are 3 things that happened in streetwear this week:
1. FASHION AWARDS
Everyone likes an award show right? Yes? No? Well despite it not being televised like the Grammy’s, fashion has its night this week. Since this is a streetwear blog, I have to cover the big news that James Jebbia of Supreme won Menswear designer, winning over legends like Raf Simons, Virgil Abloh, Thom Browne, and Tom Ford. This is a big moment for streetwear, and shows the impact this form of fashion is having. Check out Jebbia's speech HERE.
2. LIAM HODGES SS19
This week I’m toeing the line of streetwear, introducing you to some different, higher-end fashion thiiings. Liam Hodges is a London-based menswear designer who just revealed his latest 2019 collection. His muse for this collection was from the book ‘The Goldfinch’ (a personal favourite of mine). In the novel, Las Vegas was painted as a particularly quirky place, and Hodges did a great job bringing Donna Tartt’s Sin City to the runway. Check out the pics of the show HERE.
3. MAISON MARGIELA SNEAKS
That's it for the week. See you in 7 days.
What. I know I’m falling into a trap here and these sneakers are made solely to get us saying the name Maison Margiela, but still. These are hilarious. Coming in at a price tag of $1,645 USD the Fusion sneaker features scattered excess glue and a pre-ripped upper to really help you stand out from the crowd. I dunno. I don’t know why I even ask anymore...but what do you think? HYPE Or TRASH.
