A refined, genderless vintage
Accessories for men borrow elements from vintage womenswear to create pieces that can be worn by both genders. The subtle grey casting makes pastel shades more wearable, while the proportions are reduced and profiles have retro curves to give a soft outline. While utilitarian styles are still practical, they have a refined sophistication that elevates them above the rest.
Designers take a global approach to design, drawing inspiration from all over the globe with a mix of traditional handcrafting as well as contemporary design. To add new interest to men’s jewelry, beads, trinkets, and charms can be mixed and matched. Statement anklets and earpieces are not only a reference to international cultures, but also reflect the gender-fluid vibes of the season.
Utilitarian accessories are redesigned to be more urban and sleeker. They retain their usefulness, but have a refined, urban look. The sophisticated use of trims and hardware elevates durable nylon pieces and robust cord belts. For a clean, smooth silhouette, the proportions can be scaled down, or designed to fit close to your body.
