Dive into the new season with our latest assortment of streetwear-inspired casual dressing. These styles have reinvented the rules of casual dressing. While streetwear is a tricky term to define, it often connotes style that stems from hip-hop, punk and skateboarding circles and can also describe fashion inspired by youth in general. However, you see it, streetwear today is as ubiquitous as the grey flannel suit of the 1950s. With young streetwear designers now leading some of Europe’s most prestigious luxury houses, we see a hybrid of high and low with individuality the defining trait. Here are just a few of the modern styles that will see you make a splash this season.
The graphic tee has a rich history in streetwear with messages and images from all cultural and political, often signifying the wearer's values and interests. Some of our favourites graphic tees come from Italy's Bastille, made from pure cotton and cut slim for a flattering fit, with eye-catching designs that play on pop-culture from films to sports to art.
Logos are a central aspect of traditional streetwear, but it’s always advisable to make sure the logos don’t wear you. Versace Jeans Couture’s plush tracksuit features a subtle taping on the sides with a louder statement on the back. Looking to take it up a notch? Reverse the bomber for a classic all-over Versace print and let them know.
Menswear and streetwear have borrowed heavily from military uniforms across the decades. French label (and new brand to Harry Rosen) Officine Générale’s philosophy is one timelessness focusing on fabric and fit for pieces that can be worn season after season. Here they’ve taken the simple grey wool trouser and added cargo pockets and an elastic drawstring, with the butter-soft green suede jacket caps off a simple look that’s the epitome of masculinity.
Get Down, Layer Up
Canada Goose isn't just for arctic expeditions. With a wide selection of light layering pieces, it's a brand that will also have you prepared for coffee runs on days that don't call for the heavy-duty gear. We're especially fond of the Stormont 1/4 Zip Sweater that features cutting edge technology to increase breathability while keeping you warm.

Just because we’re spending time at home doesn’t mean we should let ourselves go. A new set of sweats that feel comfortable on the couch but look smart on the street is vital. This look from Hugo Boss’ more urban HUGO line combines a casual, relaxed aesthetic with the fashion-conscious design that the brand is known for.
Layering is the lynchpin of your fall wardrobe. This look from Emporio Armani, over a vivid red knit, fuses Italian heritage with exaggerated silhouettes and vivid colours to great effect. Meanwhile, on this side of the pond, sporty classics like this ultra-soft Portuguese flannel shirt from Toronto's Outclass is a prime example of a muted autumnal layering.

Time For Reflection
The workwear-inspired hi-vis trend continues this season. We love this particular piece from the new Paul & Shark x Nick Wooster collection that combines the street style star’s eclecticism with one of Paul & Shark’s most iconic styles – the Typhoon 20000 jacket. The vibrant orange is impossible to ignore.
