When the king of street wear, Kanye West, phones to warn you that he’s on his way to your first NYFW runway show—and your design company is a mere three years old—you don’t drop a beat.
Somehow, you might even find yourself awarded GQ’s Best New Menswear Designers in America, and nominated for the CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear. If you’re John Elliott, you can say to people outside your immediate family that you’re a pretty big deal.
For the designer, the accolades are secondary to an impeccable fit and silhouette, and thoughtfully-created fabric for menswear (and now, womenwear). You could say that Elliott’s attention to detail is paying off in a big way.
The Gap and Nike collaborator and self-confessed lover of LA streetwear delivers seemingly simple yet highly functional and flattering essentials that, when worn together, form an athleisure-driven ensemble that’s both entirely relaxed and accessible, yet completely put together.
John Elliott is certainly a talent to watch, and what better way to embrace his designs than by shopping the rugby shirts, hoodies, joggers, bombers, and denim that started it all?
