We’ve been edging closer and closer to a full takeover of ‘70s style for a while now. Of course, Alessandro Michele’s Gucci lives in a perpetual ‘70s dreamscape, and a growing list of designers — from Lemaire to Wales Bonner — have added sweater vests and oversized collars to their proceedings. Now, these designs are getting uptake from famous faces. Travis Scott took to Instagram yesterday to exhibit a pair of flares from Raf Simons' upcoming SS21 collection.

Whether he’s announcing a collaboration with McDonald’s, performing innovative virtual shows on Fortnite, or dressing up as Batman, Scott continues to surprise from many angles. His wardrobe is no exception. You’re as likely to see the artist sporting a pair of fresh Nike Dunks and baggy shorts as you are a sharply tailored suit. The newest arrival to this lineup? Flares.

Travis matched a long canvas trench coat complete with two teasing Raf Simons-initialled badges with a pair of two-tone flares. Cut to a slim, tailored fit to the thigh, the black pair which was seen in Raf’s FW20 show, features contrasting blue panels beginning at the knee to alter the shape, offering up one of recent memory’s most striking flares. So, whether you’re a ‘70s aficionado or new to the flared game, we’ve rounded up some pairs that echo Travis Scott’s newest addition.
