In recent times, I've found myself increasingly bidding adieu to the adjectives "clean," "minimal" and "neutral" when describing the season's most fashionable looks. As we've seen via countless street style reports, campaigns and fashion week presentations, the time has come to give graphics a warm and pleasant welcome this season.
Check out some of the best graphics we've seen this season so far below.
Vetements 'Titanic' Longsleeve
Link up one of this year's most buzz-worthy labels (Vetements), with one of the most iconic films from the '90s (Titanic), and out comes a hoodie that you'll "never let go."
non trouvé Wang T-Shirt
While metal tees dominated the streets in 2015, we'd be interested to see if the designer parody graphic gains any further traction. While we can't confirm Wang's endorsement with this particular illustration, Yohji Yamamoto, on the other hand, seems to be in on the joke.
Joyrich x Coca Cola Fur Pullover
Ever fond of pop culture references, LA label Joyrich (aka the tasteful alternative to Jeremy Scott) have whipped up an absolute banger with this furry jumper nodding the world's favorite soft drink.
Givenchy Patches Sweatshirt
Whatever religious organization you may or may not be affiliated with, there's no denying that this JC patchwork jumper by Givenchy will convert more followers to the Church of Fleek this season.
Gucci Reversible Silk Floral Bomber
Who says florals are only appropriate during the spring? Sure, you may not feel so flowery while braving through punishing snow storms and recurring head colds, but this silk Gucci bomber offers just the right kind of color therapy to help you stay in high spirits this winter.
Feature 'The Score' T-Shirt
You know who are a great band? The Fugees. You know who has an incredible logo? Slayer. Melding the worlds of hip-hop and thrash metal never looked better.
C2H4 x Hiyaset Grafitti Denim Jacket
Since we first featured them as a part of our Under the Radar series a few months back, LA's C2H4 have proven to be quite the label on the come-up. In what marks our favorite drop from the brand yet, this distressed denim jacket created in collaboration with artist Hiyaset will be turning heads with envy (I can speak from personal experience, mind you).
424 "We're Here To Help" Hoodie
424 on Fairfax, yet another label hailing from the City of Angels, spotlight recent issues of police brutality with this politically-charged graphic.
Travis Scott x Alpha Industries MA-1 Bomber
Travis Scott taps the wild wild west with some seriously stylish gear in promotion for his impending Rodeo tour.
Versace Medusa T-Shirt
Audacious, brilliant (or audaciously brilliant) luxury Italian house Versace splash their iconic emblem on this abstract, Tumblr-friendly tee, effectively stripping any kind of flashy vulgarity often affiliated with it (which would only be restored if worn by Migos).
Raf Simons x David Sims Parka
A Raf Simons collaboration is pretty much destined to be the coveted item of diehard collectors everywhere. Titled the “Isolated Heroes” capsule, the pieces bear casting photographs by renowned photographer David Sims, and mark our words, they - especially this parka - will be peppered across street style reports in the near future. Actually, they already are.
Dries Van Noten Jenci Sweater
Because we've already established our fondness of a good pop culture reference, Dries homages the very embodiment of Hollywood glamor with this subdued yet striking Marilyn Monroe illustration.
Brain Dead x DSM "Special Bather" T-Shirt
Brain Dead, one of last year's best breakthrough brands, keep to their esoteric ethos with this DSM-collaborated skate tee.
Gosha Rubchinskiy All Over H/S T-Shirt
What would a Gosha Rubchinskiy graphic be without a reference to his Soviet roots? As our personal selection for last year's best breakthrough brand, we've still got a case of Gosha fever.
