In Plain Sight

I’m sure when troops smeared mud on their threads to duck and cover from their opposition they never dreamed their move would one day go vogue.

Once a tactical necessity, this autumn brings service camo an hour all to itself. You’ll mostly see it on slim fit thermals, denim vests, and the occasional crossbody, but aside from comfy-turned-sexy sweaters, it’s the backing track to fall eighteen.

Of course, it’s not the new kid in any area, as designers and boutiques have offered camo as long as they’ve offered the silhouettes they grace. It’s just a bit more understated, a bit more quietly confident. Originally lacing itself into fashion with a full-figured palette of olive and electric then wash and repeat, this fall the old standard is softened up. Genderless and a true elevated basic, camo is an essential keystone this fall. You can sport it without ever having to scale even one wall or skill-crawl. Unless you want to.
