Military-inspired gear continues to run rampant in streetwear this season as seen in native New York brand Profound Aesthetic’s austere and functional garments. The brand has an affinity for embellishing traditional outerwear pieces with vibrant visuals and slogans that provoke contemplation. For its 2016 spring/summer collection “In Far Off Places,” Profound Aesthetic garners inspiration from distant corners of the world to infuse their utilitarian silhouettes with Middle and Far East motifs, offering garments that are at once exotic but wearable. The most standout pieces within the collection offer stark cultural juxtapositions within their graphics – one cargo jacket displays a grotesquely distorted image of a woman superimposed with flowing Arabic script, while another cream bomber jacket features the American flag and Japanese lettering placed side by side. Crafted from lightweight fabrics and pale shades of dusky pink, faded olive and sand, the latest collection from Profound Aesthetic provides the perfect pieces to outfit multicultural nomads this summer.
