Ten years from now the threads you are currently rocking will seem like an old relic to the youngins. No escaping this fate. You can playfully call your classics as vintage pieces, but we all know these kids won’t care less about your basic jogger pants, polka dot button ups, or gently used Roshes. Nah. They want to see the pieces we deemed ahead of our time. The mixed-use of different materials, the monochromatic color palette, deconstructed shapes with complex designs – this is what makes fashion, and streetwear in general, strive for individuality. A brand can change through seasons but also by the emerging cultures and unheard ideas from today’s youth.
Taking on this challenge is the well-established brand, Rocksmith, a street wear label who dares to push the envelope of fashion-forward designs, thus blurring the lines between high fashion and street culture. Its Summer 2014 collection, specifically this second delivery, introduces us to the Stratus Jogger Shorts. Striped tank tops, ombre treated shirts, mesh details on certain pieces and text patterns derived from well-known song lyrics complement the overall collection.
Check out the full lookbook above and shop the pieces at RocksmithNYC.com.
Side note, the “Baby Girl Tee” featuring a portrait of the iconic R&B Aaliyah in a Warhol-esque art style is something of a masterpiece. Best cop that one quick.
