The prevalence of #Coachella indicates the arrival of summer. Alas, hot pants, metallic shades, #Birkinstocks , and a host of t-shirts-t-shirts-and t-shirts situation just as how you stereotype it to be, have eventually taken the throne of our daily uniforms. (Sorry for the over-hashtagging situation. But well, anyway). However, in most circumstances, t-shirts are more likely in conjunction with beachwear or somewhat non-stylish pieces, for they are more like lacking sartorial variation. Thus, it’s high time we took summer jackets into consideration.
These three pieces are my recent purchase as well as gifts from the designers. The neon camouflage jacket is from the local designer boutique Discard & Logic which is co-founded and executed by my friend Alulu. It simply plays with a contrast between the understated silhouette seen extensively from a denim jacket, and the statement camouflage pattern with shades of neon. There is a moment that my mind flows to Valentino, which has made its signature unconventional camouflage a hit throughout the runway and realway. Plus, if you randomly go into the structure of the jacket, you might as well find a twist on shoulders which allows you to remove the sleeves by unzipping the side zippers.
Following up is this mesh bomber jacket from Mr. Seven‘s homonymous designer brand Mixseven. Here you can find a zip-up detail on the left sleeve (yes, i’m a zip person), another zipper on the front, and all-minimal-everything. I could come up with multi ways of how i will be like in this jacket. I may simply wear it with anAlexander Wang t-shirt and matching shorts, or drape it on the shoulders as a translucent finish for a set of patterns.
I’m sure that you might have spotted a series of electric blue pieces fromAcne Studios. And this Olympia jacketis just among the blue crowd. That’s what they say about how Acne Studios is the master of making amazing jackets by just going basic in compounding seemingly plain elements but coming up with unintentional modern edge. We’ve seen a pyramid of blue jackets before, but only few of them are able to break the routine by not ruining its wearable. And Olympia is just one of the few.
