If you’re looking for streetwear that is anything but run of the mill, check out Assembly.
The newest retail concept store, already with four outlets around the metro, boasts an A-Z directory of global clothing lines, from UK menswear brand Adyn to French footwear label Zespa Aix-en-Provence.
To be You recently visited Assembly’s Power Plant Mall branch and had a great time putting together five looks.
Teddy bear tee
Danish brand Tonsure was created by Malte Flagstad, a graduate of Central Saint Martins and former designer for Martin Margiela. With its Scandinavian sensibilities, the brand balances a strong sense of design and imaginative flair, as seen in the teddy bear fur used in most of the pieces.
A staple of the ’70s, elephant pants are making a big comeback—pun intended. This time around, the wide-legged silhouette from decades past gets a modern, street-chic look.
A more relatable silhouette is the skinny, body-fit look. Try an unconventional color combination of olive and khaki with purple for a striking statement.
Earn your stripes
Loose silhouettes reflect the strong influence of the ’90s these days. This striped tee looks very much in trend and will most likely last beyond the seasons.
Best foot forward
These days, the sought-after sneakers are by Swedish brand Axel Arigato. With their clean and simple designs, these shoes can be worn with anything every day.
