This year Frankie Morello decided to go Rolling with the Homies. The collection is very Urban throughout. The oversized b-boy pants and shirts with the gold all over. High top sneakers, baseball caps and the baggy silhouette was surprising to see, since last season was very slim and chic and really close to my personal taste. I had to watch this show a few times to understand the beauty of it. My first thoughts in the words of Cher Horowitz:
So okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don’t get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair – ew – and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we’re expected to swoon? I don’t think so.
But in watching the closer details in the video(see below), I realized the how amazing the collection really was. Yeah, let’s set aside the tacky unrefined sense of it all and look closely. This collection paid really close attentions to detail. Just look at the gold tank top, it almost looks like gold snake skin. Also, the models are accessorized to the nines with chains, crosses and small details that men should really start paying attention too.
If you were to take each piece separately, you could be on to something there. Maybe I won’t wear the baggy pants or shorts(unless it’s for bed), but I would totally rock those high tops, caps and gold oversized sweaters. I love the extra long silhouette. It’s so sartorial and unexpected the way the show was styled. It took me a while, but I’m a fan. I need a few of these looks for an instagram outfit post.
