Utilitarian influences have always held their place in seasonal collections and conditionally the go-to army green and its variations. This time around, the versatile shade has made its way from the heavy parkas and pullovers of the winter and into easy lightweight pieces to be enjoyed under the sun. From OFF—White’s signature lounge shorts to the breezy button-up from KRISVANASSCHE, this neutral shade might actually be the new black, at least conveniently for the warm season we find ourselves in.

It’s natural instinct to be attracted to the mysterious, which could explain the appeal behind Cav Empt and its quick ascent to cult status and following. C.E’s ongoing mashup of Sci-Fi references, early Internet imagery, bold lettering and coloring are ambiguous in their own right, all while paving a new lane in both streetwear and design aesthetic. Above we present our newest arrivals of the season from the Japanese label with a cryptic vision of our own.

When it comes to shorts, we generally put off wearing them until the weather channel declares a heat wave. As opposed to carrying over the pants and jeans you’ve practically lived in for the last three months of winter (feels like six if you live in the Northern Hemisphere), do some spring renewal with this seasonal pants edit.

1.Givenchy Cargo Trousers-Take a utilitarian route in these lightweight 14-pocket trousers. Just make sure you remember which pocket you put your phone in.

2.Raf Simons x Sterling Ruby Blue Denim Jeans-Electric blue was all over the runways for this season and the perfect excuse to revisit one of our favorite collaborations. Side note: the white and blue colorway of this pair is reminiscent of the work Sterling Ruby did on the walls of the Raf Simons Tokyo boutique.

3.STAMPD Essential Moto Pants-We’re always on board with anything “moto” and especially if it is on a cozy pair of lounge pants.

4. Band of Outsiders Melting Plaid Sweatpants-The LA label turns their laid-back aesthetic up a notch with this wavy plaid pair of pants inspired by the “idea of a Nixon-era dad barbecuing and taking psychedelics.” 

5. DRKSHDW by Rick Owens Aircut Jeans-DRKSHDW lets Rick Owens’ fans trade in their leather pants for a more seasonal approach with waxed cotton denim.

6. Oyster Holdings LAX Sweatpants-This season typically means vacation, which we all know is a sport in itself, making these structured yet comfortable pants an ideal in-flight uniform.

We’d be hard-hit if our newest brand Midnight Studios wasn’t already on your radar. The Los Angeles-based label has been buzzing since its 2014 inception and has already earned co-signs from a few of our favorite creatives (Theophilus London and Wiz Khalifa to name a couple). The brand’s third collection entitled “Something Else” takes easy silhouettes and transforms them into statement pieces with just the right details. T-shirts are crafted from quality slubbed-cotton, broody graphics are effectively placed throughout, and even the classic flannel earns visual appeal with decorative straps. Considering the label’s designer Shane Gonzales clocks in at twenty years of age, this nonconformist collection can be best described as for the youth by the youth.

“I like reducing things to what’s essential. I like erasing the unnecessary, doing things shorthand and getting to the point,” says Rick Owens. The minimalistic spirit of the DRKSHDW designer is both an explanation for why his diffusion label name has no vowels, but also what attracts us to the collections time and time again.

Tops with slightly longer hems, shorts that drop just a bit more than expected, macabre patches, and wax coatings are all part of Owens’ minimal rebellious twist on wardrobe staples. While we’ve come to expect Owens’ pallid color palette, the centerpieces amongst this spring collection are the reflective silver flight jacket and high-tops. That being said, DRKSHDW by Rick Owens S/S ’15 will have you standing out day and night.

The inventors of the sweatpant and the sweatshirt were clearly on to something back in the early 1920s. Fast-forward to today and the evolution of the sweatsuit has never been as apparent as with Los Angeles-based, luxury sportswear label Oyster Holdings. First introduced for the Fall ‘14 season, Oyster is back for Spring ‘15 with a new collection of jet-set ready silhouettes. 

From running to catch flights to withstanding hours confined to a plane seat, Oyster Holdings is founded on the vision that traveling is a sport. Oyster’s equal regard for comfort and style while traveling is apparent in the tailored silhouettes, the unparalleled softness of the Japanese French Terry, and the 18k gold plated hardware found on most pieces. With only two seasons in, Oyster Holdings has quickly become an international uniform for the traveling connoisseur.

Although we’re always fans of the classic and timeless, what would fashion be without seasonal trends? Boring is what. From the runway to the streets, here are the top trends we’re getting on board with for the Spring/Summer 2015 season.

  1. DENIM

Double up on denim. The Canadian tuxedo is in and who better for the job than Parisian label Pierre Balmain?

  1. TEXTURE

In the colder months it is a no-brainer, in the spring it is refreshingly unexpected. Go with KVA’s suede bomber or Christopher Kane’s Pages tee.

  1. PRINT

From stripes to paisley and everything in between, add visual interest to your look with print. 3.1 Phillip Lim’s vertical stripes caught our eye.

  1. COLOR

Wearing all black in the winter is inevitable; do a 180 in bold, colorful options. KRISVANASSCHE and Raf Simons agree.
