When photographers are able to influence the direction of fashion, it’s something worth noting. Take the recent case of Utility Pro’s collaboration with photographer, Alessandro Simonetti. Together, they have created a new line of outerwear that is functional and also pretty funky.
Utility Pro is no stranger to outwear, having been the go-to source for construction worker gear and apparel for quite some time. This may explain the collection’s consistent use of bright colors, such as orange and yellow. But in this case, it’s no longer just a safety precaution, it’s a fashion statement. Combined with screen wear patches and paint ornaments, U.P.W.W. is straddling the divide between unions and as they say, “creative disobedience.”
Let’s just say we’re digging it.
