Hoodies a Fashion Statement!
Long known as the blue collar or urban look, instilled fear in some, the hoodie has stirred up controversy. It is the outfit of choice for Kanye West, Jay Z, and Mark Zukerberg to name a few of the fashionably successful CEO’s, hip hop recording artist and entrepreneurs that do not adhere to the restrictive dress codes.
Well, now the hoodie has become fashionable. No longer just for those who can afford Champion. It has evolved from Champion, to high fashion like Italian cashmere from Brunello Cucinelli, deluxe hoodies in 12-ply cashmere.
At the Paris and Milan runways, designers showed their interpretations. Missoni did it in their classic silk knit, giving the hoodie a relaxed luxury feel and look. Cavalli added leather details for an updated trend of the moment look. Spring 14 collections are arriving in stores now, the hoodie has a presence there as well. Louis Vuitton and Givenchy are just a few of the collections where the hoodie is present.
