Retro Sports Cool
Trend Flash: Concrete Bloc
Our new collection hangs on the cooler side of the 90’s tracks – so forget the fluoro flashes, weird hair, and mom jeans! This collection’s inspired by late 80’s and early 90’s rave culture and sportswear-as-outerwear (sound familiar?). Athleisure before athleisure was cool: blending luxe gym-ready gear and casually cool leisurewear is the vibe for pieces like joggers, tees and sweatshirts.
Standouts include tops that take logomania to new heights, with pattern repeats like on our Moscow multi-print tee, plain tees in bold paintbox brights for just $2.50, and lightweight windbreakers perfect for layering.
On the accessories front, we have drawstring gym bags in primary shades embellished with badges and perfect for the commute or short travel. Plus retro runners with air bubbles in bright greens and reds, trucker caps with bent peaks and gold- and silver-finish chains that add an urban edge.
A great way to wear it: pick a primary-colored tee, and add a tri-color hoodie for a perfect play on clashing. Pair with mid-wash jeans with rip-and-repair details, and accessorize with a backpack, trucker cap, and bold mesh runners.
"Concrete Bloc is one of our transitional spring trends: it's a throwback to 1990's sportswear, featuring color blocking in jersey, poly-tricot and nylon plus simple, sporty prints. It's focused around denims, light jackets, and accessories, and the key colours for this trend are red, navy and cobalt blue – with accents of sulphur yellow and bottle green."- Andrew Beller, Menswear Designer
So to give your wardrobe a hit of spring color, this is your trend – and with prices at just $2.50, there’s no excuse not to! Concrete Bloc is a versatile and perfect transitional collection to take you from this season to summer with ease.
