Retail Buyers Guide: Men’s Streetwear FW18/19
Category: Men’s Streetwear
Interviewee: Dan Preston – Design Manager Globe International
Are you seeing any dominant overall trends for F/W2018, like work wear for instance?
Tran-seasonal garments will be dominant as they are items with more bang for buck. Affordable items that have a few tricks in the way of performance and workwear inspired looks are still prevalent.
Our take on this is our versatile Goodstock Utility Jacket featuring DWR water repellence with internal bonded coating and brushed tricot lining for added warmth without weight.
Utility shackets and overshirts remain important layering pieces.
How are fits evolving in tops, bottoms, outerwear?
The 90s attitude is subtly reinterpreted, through bold colour-blocking, stripes and silhouettes such as layered oversized tees, wider ribs, and roomy chinos.
What are you doing with materials, colours and textures?
Key items that are at the core of commercial street utility themes are given a relaxed update, rendered in surface treated fabrics for a luxe feel.
Orange and fire red are dominant statement brights for A/W18. Playing on associations with high-visibility workwear and military staples this balances out our essential colours of navy, stone, and black, with deeper bottle greens elevating fatigue-inspired olives with a modern edge for A/W 18.BEST SELLERS
Please name and describe your 3 highlight pieces and items that retailers should definitely order.
Globe Goodstock Utility Jacket – Anoraks made of weather-resistant nylons will be popular. Classic utility inspirations position the silhouette as a casual surf/street essential built with function and form in mind.
Our ‘Black out bar logo pack’ which is also a core account essential.
