ALLGOOD IN THE HOOD

The hoodie goes from side­walk to cat­walk, as metal tees rock up. Amy Yasmine cracks down on the new street styles.

started by Vete­ments. This sea­son, de­sign­ers ze­roed in on the ex­ag­ger­ated sleeves, as seen at Stella McCart­ney, Fenty Puma by Ri­hanna, and Marc Ja­cobs. At Cé­line, su­per­sized sleeves were worn over over­sized knitwear and struc­tured blouses, while Mar­ques’Almeida re­de­fined ca­sual dresses with sporty, larger-than-life hoodie dresses. Who needs gloves when you’ve got sleeves that go the dis­tance for you?

THAT’S SO METAL

While metal iconog­ra­phy isn’t ex­actly a ground­break­ing idea in fash­ion (re­mem­ber Ba­len­ci­aga’s Join A Weird Trip jumper from Au­tumn/ Win­ter ’12?), its me­te­oric rise and cur­rent dom­i­na­tion on and off the run­way, cer­tainly is. Spear­headed by wun­derkind Demna Gvasalia at Vete­ments, the gothic font has gone from hard metal al­bum cov­ers to run­way norm, and now, hard-selling band merch. Take Kanye West’s re­cently launched The Life of Pablo mer­chan­dise for ex­am­ple, which was in­spired by ’80s heavy metal band Dio. Or even Justin Bieber’s Pur­pose tour col­lec­tion, con­ceived as a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the pop star and Fear of God de­signer, Jerry Lorenzo. Over in Paris, Span­ish la­bel Loewe sent out a met­al­in­spired T-shirt, as seen on Mica Ar­ga­naraz, prov­ing to us that metal is here to stay.
