The Urban Graduate [play.vs.away]

with 3 comments

I noticed this trend for the “homme”s popping up on the runways during Paris’ fashion week…leggings with shorts. Some designers chose to have the leggings pulled all the way down the leg and some didn’t.

Givenchy chose to pull the leggings up towards the knee. This is a little more tolerable, for me at least.

But below, I think this is the only time I have seen the trend done “right.” The longer shorts and the hi-tops [Those look like the Pierre Hardy hi-tops on his feet] make the look more urban and less “I would never wear that off of a runway.”

Honestly, I just want to know how our urban grads AND graduettes feel about this look and what do they propose to anyone who may try it. So what do yall think? PLAY or AWAY?

Big shout-out to the JAK & JIL BLOG for their awesome visual coverage of fashion week in Paris.

We’re putting the finishing touches on Purple Label. TRUST, it’s gonna be CRAAAAZY! Until then, we wanted to throw a few style ideas out there for folk to get used to:

Random shirt I found on highsnobiety.com. I think this shirt goes hard, especially because of the Celtics- Lakers Finals.

The Answer Crown Royal Limited Ed. by Reebok. Couldn’t you just see somebody wearing these at the Greek Picnic. Too bad they’re exclusive.

Nike Dunk Hi. (I found these on my safari hunt around Boston — this place called, Tannery, in Cambridge)

Back In The Days Tee by Jeepney. I know a kat who would dig this shirt (shouts to W. Tuck)

Jungle Fever Short by Artful Dodger. I mess with Artful Dodger!! They were some of the firsts to put graf art onto clothing and do it intricate enough to where people didn’t even know they were rockin it.
