For some years now, “workwear” has found a prominent place in the men’s wardrobe. For the fall/winter 2018-2019 the trend is further strengthened and assumes an identity with even more precise and decisive outlines. Just think of the collections of Craig Green, the talent also enlisted by Moncler for the Genius project, always linked to the world of uniforms for its collections, to realize that the phenomenon is no longer just wearing a rough jeans or a chore coat, but it’s much more. The Calvin Klein fashion shows, Louis Vuitton, Junya Watanaba are a demonstration of sumptuous names in the fashion world that have chosen the uniform of the fireman, in particular, as a key to the winter wardrobe. So the bright details and the important constructions that we usually see on policemen or firefighters become the new codes of fashion, from yellow to neon stripes, to the 3M reflective tape. The same collection of Kany West, say sales, is focusing on a jacket that is not surprisingly seems stolen from that of firefighters.
And to think about it, who as a child did not dream, even if only for a little while, to become a firefighter?
