The the twin forces of sturdy workwear and timelessly elegant uniforms continue to impact ready-to-wear. For women’s fashion on menswear runways, many looks borrow from military or utility clothing, but are made new and desirable with fresh fabrics, creative placement for details, and sleek styling. Materials include moving-blanket quilts, oversized tweeds, fluffy fleece and smooth, dense woolens. Pants can be tailored, slouchy or slim knits. Throughout, flap pockets and high-function zips, “instruction” labels, industrial tabs and luggage clips keep the inspirations authentic.
