Iconoclasm: The action of assertively rejecting cherished beliefs and institutions, or established values and practices.
Traditions tend to keep things in order. They often provide structure and a comforting sense of conventionality. But in the same way, this often leads to the establishment of rigid systems where any new mode of thought is dismissed if it lies outside the box; what often lingers, as a result, is grueling monotony that’s only matched by the feeling of complacency. Our 2018 “Iconoclasm” editorial attempts to demystify the orthodox where ideas for disrupting style frameworks emerge. Borrowing cues from classic American silhouettes and streetwear motifs, we’ve styled some outfits that bend to reflect an unfamiliar, more free-forming way of putting garments together.
Enlisted in our curated take are brands from Très Bien, MISBHV, AMI and more. Find a grey run-of-the-mill trench coat offset by a pair of wider-cut light denim from Polar Skate Co.; a blue-striped A.P.C. sweater is layered underneath the Kimono Quilt Liner Jacket from Magic Stick; retro sneakers from New Balance and adidas Originals round out the looks with a touch of old-school aesthetic.
