The Summer Steeze
This is just going to be a quick post on summer style trends. I will be posting one of these periodically throughout this Spring/Summer 2014 season. As we all know trends happen whether we agree with them or not, just ask the king of the leather sweatpants himself, Kanye West. But (usually) like all trends, they slowly fade away. Then something else “new” and “cool” that we didn’t know already happened before our time starts trending again and the cycle continues. So with that being said, I’m going to quickly touch on a current streetwear trend I like or don’t like.
All-over Print Patterns
One current “trend” I have been seeing more of in a lot of street wear brands right now is not only the use of custom all-over print/ textile patterns, but the variety of garments brands are making using these patterns. From snapbacks and 5-panel hats, to button-up shirts, hoodies, tees, and even boxer briefs. The more creative the garment the better, and lately that’s what brands seem to be doing in attempts to separate themselves from the “industry pack”.Here we have the Raise Up Chip Camo Tee from 10.DEEP featuring two different patterns that split the shirt in half from a “Floral” print down into a custom Saftey Orange Camouflage pattern.
There are some pieces I’ve seen lately that a like, but the number of patterns I wouldn’t wear seems to always out weighs the number of ones I would. Experiment on your own with different patterns/garments, but don’t go over board with one outfit of multiple patterns, you’ll be looking like Don Cherry on Hockey Night in Canada.
