What You Know About Limited Edition Streetwear And What You Don’t.
For many seasons now the line between streetwear and mainstream fashion has been becoming blurred and has become close to non existent. Luckily for the adults streetwear has grown as well and there are ways to look the look without resembling a teenager.
Streetwear has always been about scarcity … about being the only one in your neighborhood with the flyest shoes or the hottest new tee. Take FTATEHIG, for example. The rising streetwear label prides itself on limited edition quantities. It’s often referred to as “FTATE” by its followers. Innovator, Designer and Curator Ken Lee explains, “We look at our label as art. The clothing pieces are the canvases for our art, and similar to standard art pieces, we produce limited quantities of art, so that the value of these art pieces appreciate over time. The goal is longevity and value. We want fans of our art to feel proud knowing that the items they invested into, no matter how old, will always maintain and/or increase in value. We celebrate hypebeast resellers and “investors” (as we like to call them) because they are the ones that understand this, they understand the future of streetwear and the value that exists in it.”
From our understanding, FTATEHIG limited edition items are available on a first come first serve basis so once sold out, they never return to ftatehig.com. FTATEHIG has an ambitious vision for streetwear, believing that it will one day be treated like Picasso paintings being auctioned off at Sotheby’s. Pretty freakin refreshing and unique.
Wear Premium Fabrics
Fabric has always been the key component which has separated actual high-fashion from the mainstream one. So, we would suggest for you to go with luxe fabrics such as cashmere or possibly jersey. Also, go with high and tracksuits and go check out brands such as Loro Piana and Officine Generale.
As an adult what you want is to be asked where your key piece is from not to scream it into people’s eyes with giant logos. Take inspiration from it by all means but do not give into the hype. It isn’t everything.
Just like Drake said “Started from the bottom, now we’re here.” Always start from your shoes and build the outfit from there.Also, it might be a smart idea not to give into buying intentionally ugly shoes with giants soles. When buying, always pay more attention to the build quality.
We all know how when it comes to street and mainstream fashion baggy clothes have become a staple. What we would suggest you to go for as an adult of this world is Loose clothes. They are quite an organic substitute for baggy clothes without making you look like a barrel.
Time to Work
The most important part of all of this is to be able to take it to work. Luckily, with the trends changing it is now more often than not acceptable to go to work in any street style outfits. Just remember not to go overboard with it.
