Nowadays, protest style is becoming super trendy.
Continuing Mens Fashion Week in Milan, Ports 1961 dedicated its S/S 2018 collection to the Black Lives Matter movement. In a strong message to the world, the fashion brand’s first look featured a black sweater with the iconic Black power fist screen printed in white on the front. The model also rocked black cropped slacks with #Resist written on one pant leg.
The collection was not only good, it was highlighting the trends of the “cool African kids” and New York’s rebellious street scene of the ’80s. If Barry, the film about Barack Obama on Netflix, could be associated with a collection, it would be this one.
From the collection’s official press release:
“This collection is, in its own way, a message of solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement thatbegan in the street and on social media in 2012. The fight against violence and for justice for blackpeople resonates today in an even wider, bigger way.”
Trend Alert: Cropped Trousers
Ports 1961 will send not only cropped trousers down the runway, but menswear will feature more prints.
