We’re not ones to throw around the term “disrupter” loosely, since due to our HQ’s proximity to Silicon Valley, we hear it on the daily. That being said, we believe we’ve finally found one brand worthy of the bold characterization. Think sock boots that resemble exactly what you’d imagine: boots that look like high-heeled athletic socks, black and red leather flame-covered platform boots Gene Simmons would covet, and oversized outerwear featuring pop-culture references like the DHL and Thrasher logos, Dylan McKay quotes from Beverly Hills 90210 (epic, if you ask us), and Kate and Leo’s last moments aboard the Titanic.
So now you see what we mean, right? This Parisian design collective led by Demna Gvasalia of Maison Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton, and Balenciaga fame is majorly shaking things up in the fashion world right now, but their oversized separates and cheeky twists are not for the timid. Whether the shrunken knits and rugby shouldered sweaters are wearable is another story, but we’re game to give this divergent brand a go. Are you?
If, yes—browse a handful of authentic pieces right here on eBay. If you’re into the look, but not the prices, get creative with us. Browse standard issue DHL gear, and funny Titanic and Leonardo di Caprio t-shirts. Then follow our easy DIY denim tutorial to get the same uneven hems spotted on Vetements’ runways.
