If we challenged you to present the number one trend that has survived the throwback styling of the early noughties, the Global Recession of 2008, and the god-awful nautical trend that once permeated the runways, we can almost guarantee you’d say… stripes.
Re-imagined for 2017, much-loved Kiwi men’s and women’s wear label Thing Thing have leant their creative eye to the trend, and the result has left us with our jaws on the floor.
And no, that isn’t a typo, the aptly named fashion brand is a dual functioning fashion entity – both a woman’s and a man’s thing – equal parts rough and tough, while delicate, gentle and beautiful.
The dichotomy between men’s and women’s wear is where Thing Thing likes to play – classic wearable silhouettes are infused with the unconventional, giving a truly modern aesthetic.
Thing Thing’s FW17 collection, ‘Now Now’ lives up to this reputation perfectly. For the boys, slouchy styling combines with a muted colour palette, in a range of tees, hoodies, jackets and cropped trousers.
Earthy highlights reign supreme in womenswear, easy-fit dresses and co-ords offer fresh takes on the ever-popular stripe trend, while a floral-patterned dress softens the collection.
Perfect for layering, each warming piece will guide you through the cooler months, whether you’re spending yours cuddled up on the couch, or hitting your favourite cafés.
Thank you, Thing Thing, as usual, we love your things.
