I gave you a few teasers of what’s to come in Zoo York Fall / Winter 20 season, lately. I have another item that captured my attention that I have to share with you, courtesy of Italian licensee Sem Manifatture.
The brand that came to life in 1993, to represent an East Coast twist of the skate lifestyle, has always sparked my interest for its ability to create outstanding apparel items and today it is once again the case. Long gone are the days of Zoo York headquarter in the meat packing district in Manhattan, where you had the OG crew converging before skate sessions, yet the attitude stays the same.
With a urban approach to apparel design, here with Cordity crewneck, there are a few features that deserve our attention if the usual hoodie got you tired and you want a fleece with that special something. Avoiding any print, this Zoo York fleece has a subtle way to tell what your passions are about. With a couple of sponge embroidery on sleeves, this cut and sew item is far from average.
It is enough to give a look to the asymmetrical colorway of the sleeves to understand the level of innovation of this item. Contrasting letters add flavor and fall into the “split colorway trend” that is gaining momentum these days.
To increase the uniqueness of this fleece there is a collar borrowed from a hoodie with extra long outdoor style colorful cords but… no hood. This feature, together with its subtle branding close to the hem (instead than on the chest), is a quite unusual sight. Remember when we saw last time this same embroidery on the post about that allover print tee called Bally t-shirt?
The finishing touch on this item comes from its varsity inspired hem that sets this item apart, when you are looking for a fleece that could look equally good at the skate spot just like when you are commuting or going to the club. Stay tuned with your local skateshop and when this item drops in about a month make sure you don’t miss it. Time to roam the streets with the new new…
