I learned recently that loose baggy pants have become a "thing" and cool kids at Céline and DSMNY are wearing them with their Stan Smiths and chunky clear-frame glasses. I don't know any of these people personally but trust me when I tell you they exist in Selectism's collective imaginary.

This trend freaked me out partially because I found it unappealing but also because now what am I going to do with my wardrobe of carefully tapered chinos and skinny jeans? But then I saw this collection from Japan's Ethosens featuring lots of muted grays, navies and browns in flowing silhouettes and collarless configurations, and am now converted. Titled "White Rhombus," the brand's Fall/Winter 2015 collection expertly works in loose trousers amongst a series of tunics, blazers and coats that manage to be both architectural and fluid at the same time. Pinstripes and jackets evoke Savile Row tailoring, but the play on layering and proportion is anything but. Thankfully, designer Yui Hashimoto left room for some careful tapering, so all hope for my current wardrobe is not lost.
