AW18 Pattern: Leggings With Every little thing

New York’s athletic urge exhibits no signal of waning: “leggings with the whole lot” was the message at Tom Ford, Victoria Beckham, Philipp Plein and R13. Ford’s had been notable for his or her unapologetically brash, 1980s-fuelled gumption – put on them with a tuxedo, put on them with a T-shirt, go wet-look, sequinned or animal print, and ensure they’re tighter than tight, was the LA-dwelling designer’s memo. Beckham’s, in contrast, had been agonised over, rendered in a “sucky-sucky” cloth that had taken a number of goes to get proper, and layered rigorously underneath army coats and sensible parkas – all the higher on your determine. For Chris Leba at R13, they had been a canvas for environmental remark, digitally printed with US landscapes, screen-saver-style, to go hand in hand with hoodies depicting scenes protesting the development of the Keystone pipeline in Utah. As for Plein? Tight, trashy, decked out in crystals and rendered in slick black, that they had a 1960s-hued enchantment.
