With constant new developments across technology and design SS19 trends look to the 1990’s: an era of colour blocking, experimental graphics, wash treatments and bucket hats. There’s a strong air of nostalgia with American sportswear remaining a prominent figure, in combination with being fine tuned by an emerging ‘anti-streetwear’ attitude which encourages styling of lightly tailored trousers and longer cut jackets with leisurewear staples such as hoodies and t-shirts.

‘90s hip-hop plays a large influential role in the decoration of new collections with embroidered patches, bold patterns and contrasting block panelling being favoured to bring new life to casual essentials. If you’re looking for new season stripes you’re in luck as they are in abundance, seen across t-shirts, button through shirts and polo shirts and coloured in tones of yellow, green, red and blue. Varying widths and orientations prove that whatever its final form, stripes remain a year round necessity.

Dynamic in their styling possibilities, polo and cuban style shirts are considered a must-have style for spring/summer and have been reworked with woven patterns inspired by

tropical imagery. Stussy have worked their own design style into the season with a watercolour flower design that pays homage to Hawaiian islands, whilst Stan Ray has experimented with Batik techniques for an intricate finish, one of which incorporates the famous Smiley emblem, a prominent pop culture symbol of the era.

Workwear and western style influenced jackets are a leading theme for outerwear, replacing ever-popular denim styles with single colour editions constructed with multiple pockets accentuated by contrasting top stitching. Cargo pants are a favoured trouser style, with brighter shades of blue and yellow used by Stan Ray and Dickies alongside organic tones of brown and green which offer more wearable finishes. Taped seams and technical detailing highlights influences from performance driven clothing, alongside nylon buckle belts, panelled inserts and an array of pockets which nod to utilitarian influences and together give a sense of outdoor wear gaining further momentum and encouraging multipurpose wear for activities that demand both durability and style.
