Camo Chameleon

Cam­ou­flage is fight­ing off the com­pe­ti­tion and we plan to sur­ren­der

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

Cam­ou­flage—seen just as of­ten on boot camp fit­ness in­struc­tors and overzeal­ous cor­po­rate types en­joy­ing paint­balling away­days as in ac­tual mor­tal com­bat— was firmly re­vis­ited and re-en­vi­sioned for SS17. Vete­ments, Pub­lic School, Open­ing Cer­e­mony and Off-white have all been long-stand­ing streetwear pi­o­neers of the print on caps, tees and track­suits. How­ever, this sea­son camo has been camped up rather won­der­fully and served in a de­light­ful ar­ray of colours and luxe fab­rics. Bot­tega Veneta ren­dered the print in geo­met­ric, blocky prints, while Cer­ruti adapted it with painterly splashes and Dries Van Noten col­laged cam­ou­flage with patch­work. At Valentino, camo print was re­duced from its usual five lay­ers of colour to three. Note: avoid look­ing like the lat­est con­script to the army by wear­ing ac­cents of the print rather than an allover as­sault.
