From the luxury fashion catwalk to the streets of New York City, urban styling has emerged onto the scene for fall 2019. Streetwear has been given an upgrade this season, with rugged urban utilitarianism crossing over with techno primitivism to create a strong mix of sturdy materials and safety orange gloss finishes.
This new Urban Survivor trend brings protective work-wear fabrics back into the spotlight as they enter commercial activewear markets and begin to appear on the city streets. Equipped for an inclement moment in history, this fashion statement features harnessed tailoring, robust fabrics, and safety features like protective jackets and worker trousers with waterproofing, shock absorbing and other technical elements. This urban utilitarianism creates a crossover with sporty, technical innovation that lands this trend straight unto the streets of the 21st century.
It’s this crossover that has inspired our new Urban Survivor collection. These sturdy and fearless fall selections fall squarely into the category of luxurious streetwear with a technical twist.
Our biggest standout in this collection is the Idas, a moto-inspired heeled bootie with an asymmetrical zipper harness. Crafted with genuine leather, this architectural beauty features a 2.76" stacked heel, an extended welt design and a memory foam padded sock for effortless everyday wear.
Style blogger Lela encapsulates this effortlessly luxe streetwear look with her black Idas boots, paired with her Rolling Stones graphic tee and grey-black denim jeans, finished off with a bold red lip. Her look displays how wearable this Urban Survivor trend can be when paired with essentials you already have in your own closet and given new life with the right pair of moto-inspired booties.
Incorporate this urban streetwear trend into your next fall ensemble. You may be surprised with just how effortlessly chic and luxe this look can be.
