Buyer’s Guide: DARK STREETWEAR by oki-ni

The everyday staples of streetwear take a gothic turn with this collection of dark and moody pieces from the likes of Rick Owens and Alexander Wang. Curated by online men’s shopping destination oki-ni, we take a look at some of this season’s most sinister pieces of streetwear. Check out the entire selection below.

 

L.G.R. Black Tripoli Sunglasses

Handmade in Italy, these sunglasses by L.G.R have lightweight cellulose acetate frames that are bent into shape without heat to create a perfect fit. An angular, oversized design, they are fitted with Green G15 lenses, which were originally developed in the 1950s for pilots to offer the most neutral color vision.

 

Alexander Wang Black Acid Embossed Leather Jacket

A true statement piece, this jacket from Alexander Wang is crafted from premium leather that has been treated with acid in a highly unique way to produce the embossed finish. With a technique that involves no stitching, a diagonal pattern is drawn with acid on the surface of the leather, shrinking these sections and allowing the non-treated sections to protrude, which creates the quilted-effect.

 

Hood by Air Black Rainbow Weather Long-Sleeved T-Shirt

The brainchild of New York designer Shayne Oliver, Hood by Air has risen to meteoric heights in the blink of an eye. Pushing a futuristic and innovative design agenda, HBA have created a series of long-sleeved T-shirts with colorful prints inspired by weather map graphics.

 

Thom Krom Black Sweat Shorts

A relaxed and comfortable style, these sweat shorts from Thom Krom have a double-layered design with contrasting waffle and smooth finishes.

 

Lanvin Black Pony Hair Basket Slip-On Sneakers

These sneakers by Lanvin are a luxurious and refined version of a classic sporting style. They have a mixed construction of pony hair and waxed canvas on the uppers which creates a pleasing textured finish.

 

nonnative Silver Dweller Star Chain Ring

A minimal design with touches of modern luxury, this ring from nonnative’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection draws on the Japanese brand’s wide range of influences and is made in collaboration with fabled costume jewelers, End.

 

Rick Owens DRKSHDW Men’s Camo Print Cotton Bomber Jacket

Featuring the angular urban camo print seen throughout the DRKSHDW line for Spring/Summer 2014, this jacket is crafted from washed cotton that is both lightweight and comfortable. It comes finished with a range of classic bomber jacket features.

 

Hood by Air White Paramount Long-Sleeved T-Shirt

Another standout piece from Hood by Air’s weather map-inspired collection, Shayne Oliver opts for a lighter look on the White Paramount tee.

 

Alexander Wang Black Mesh T-Shirt

Combining a thick spongy fabric, with an oversized fit and a knitted open weave construction, this T-shirt from Alexander Wang offers a contemporary twist on a classic design.

 

Rick Owens Men’s Black Drawstring Trousers

A signature Rick Owens style, the Drawstring Trousers are an integral part of any Rick Owens outfit. Crafted from thick cotton, they have a drawstring waistband and slightly dropped crotch which add to the avant-garde silhouette.
