Season: Fall/Winter 2017
Key Pieces: The wide-legged black pants, skater-style nylon belts and checked shirting are easy-going casualwear vibes anyone could get into.
Editor’s Notes: Asian streetwear imprint CLOT is back with another round of low-key casual bangers for FW17. Edison Chen’s label reworks the usual western streetwear basics, but adds a dose of Oriental-style karate jackets, which have been reworked with what appears to be heavy-duty workwear fabrics.
The lookbook also includes our first look at a forthcoming Converse One Star collaboration, featuring a two-tone colorway with hairy suede. Paying homage to the graceful martial art of Tai Chi, the shoe’s black upper and white ankle honors the Chinese symbols for inner peace, shown on the shoe’s insole and outer sole. The design also includes a printed quote of Confucian wisdom shown in both Mandarin and English.
