From thick knits to cargo pants, this season is all about streamlined versatility of high-quality, utility-inspired pieces. Structure gives relaxed minimalism a polished edge, while details like thoughtfully placed pockets, belts, drawstrings, and zippers keep things refreshingly functional.
The best part: both men and women have abundant options, whether gravitating toward the avant-garde elegance of Dries Van Noten, the sporty ease of Sacai, or NSF’s relaxed, Californian vibe. Outerwear is great way to embrace the trend—with pea coats, field jackets, vests, and parkas that range from rugged to polished.
