Focus: Earth Tones
As the vibrancy of summer fades, the arrival of fall brings with it the welcome arrival of neutral, muted garments. In varying shades of camel, olive, cinnamon, whiskey, rust and palettes in between, earth tones depict nature in its authentic and unembellished state. Contrasting the solid concrete facades, our editorial spotlights the tenderness exuding from the color scheme and the complexity underneath the light-toned minimalism. Highlighted brands include C.P. Company, Palm Angels, Rick Owens DRKSHDW, Helmut Lang and more.
Known for its military-inspired functional outwear, Italian label C.P. Company is a renowned manufacturer of garments in olive and beige. The Fleece Hoodie in grey brown is highlighted by color blocks in a lighter shade over the sleeves, with drawcords to the hems and hood for the crispy fall. With the signature “Goggle” logo on the sleeve, the same detail is seen at the front of the Nylon Satin Lens Waist Bag. Completing the look is the 1952 Moncler Long Parka filled with white goose down and the khaki Maison Margiela Retro Fit Sneakers highlighted by the hand-dyed sponges.
Moving over to the lighter end of the color spectrum and in line with the utilitarian trend, the Palm Angels Hunting Vest is sported over the Sophnet Field Blouson. Featuring multiple patch and flap pockets, the y-neck piece can be joint in the middle with a button closures, also sporting zip closure details on the sides. The style is accompanied by other minimalistic items including the MKI Miyuki Zoku Pants and the Asics GEL-Nimbus 21 SPS.
Our final curated look focuses in a number of elevated designer pieces alongside selected accessories. Highlighting the Rick Owens DRKSHDW Hustler Sweatshirt, Helmut Lang Raincoat and the Burberry Monogram Shorts, each of the classic silhouettes are reinvented in the label’s signature aesthetics, prints and tailoring. The Suicoke DEPA-CABARI-A Sandals was made in collaboration with London-based streetwear label Aries, sporting yellow graphic print on the Velco straps on top of the Vibram® morflex sole in olive. Styled with the Masterpiece Waist Bag.
