As we slowly transition into the colder months of the year, HBX spotlights some of the most fashionable, street-ready tactical clothing from brands like Stone Island, 1017 ALYX 9SM, Prada, Off-White™ and many more.
Here’s what the eshop had to say of its latest editorial, dubbed “Reconstruction.”
Back to the early ’90s, Helmut Lang was one of the progenitors in introducing tactical garments to the world. Elements such as ballistic-styled vests, harness straps and piled-on functional layers have all influenced the development of contemporary fashion. Looking at the past few seasons, utilitarianism reigns. From the Chest Rig of 1017 ALYX 9SM to the Off-White™ “Industrial Belt” and the Heron Preston “Tape Belt,” many designers partake to challenge the wave of luxe-utility with their very own aesthetics. Our 2019 “Reconstruction” Editorial encapsulates the essence of this tactical trend.
