I work construction and am required to wear high vis PPE.
I would never buy some high end/fashion brands take on high vis.
Not only would it not be compliant with the regulations but man is it hideous.

Wow, that is tragic!

Will the folks who compile the Arco catalogue be considered trend forcasters?

Watanabe is late to the party - Barnstormers (FW) have already been trying to get rid of this for a couple of years

Ive just been reading some biz from NY Fashion week, looks like things have finally gone full circle regarding actual workwear, as opposed to this romanticised poser-workwear we're all quite fond of.

Nylon work trousers, reflective/high-vis utility jackets ect from Junya Watanabe and even actual workwear brands like CAT making it into the John Elliott collection, some of the 'high-end' garb is splattered with paint for that 'authentic feel'

The Amey highway maintenance dude's digging up the street outside my work look fly as fuck, and remember that Barbour/DeWalt quilted jacket which i posted a few years ago which we all laughed at... well that's super-fly! Makes me wish i hadn't chucked it in the bin.

The thing is, I would kill to have a little more feminity in the cold winters we face in Canada. This stuff may look bonkers, but I am kind of tempted/inspired to try stitching up a nice long skirt in puffer material...

I think it may be like the Auto Business. They show fairly exaggerated "design studies" of future cars at Trade Shows - gauge the opinion of the public - and then create watered down designs for actual production.


So maybe (hopefully) some of the aspects you like will make it into real garments. Fingers crossed!
