Featuring the creme de la creme of fashion houses including Givenchy and Vivienne Westwood as well as top brands Billionaire Boys Club and Buscemi to name but a few, we’re hoping you find something you love.
Maharishi – Orange Militype Pullover Hoodie
If you caught our recent blog on menswear trends for 2019, you’ll already know that bright and neon colours are going to be massive next spring.

This versatile piece will keep you warm on rainy days, so consider making it part of your look in 2019.
Billionaire Boys Club – Black Paisley Sweatpants
A partnership between US superstar Pharrell Williams and Japanese fashion icon Nigo, Billionaire Boys Club was established in 2005 and has gone on to enjoy enormous success. Their pieces are made in limited quantities, so you may want to snap up the opportunity to grab these sweatpants now! Patterns are huge for 2019, so the classic paisley running down the legs will keep you looking fresh, while the cotton and regular fit will ensure these joggers are comfortable for any occasion.
Givenchy – White/Black Text Sliders
For those days when the mercury rises and it’s far too hot to coop your feet up in shoes, you might as well cool down in style, right? These simple sliders from fashion giant Givenchy are made of a simple white rubber complete with the Givenchy logo in black across the strap. Whether you’re chilling by the pool or in a beer garden, these casual sandals will keep you looking fashion forward. Pair with shorts and a polo for a smart, casual look that will keep you cool in the heat.
Love Moschino – Khaki Slim Cuffed Joggers
Darker, earthy greens will be huge in 2019, and Love Moschino have cashed in on this early with these Khaki joggers. Not only is their colour extremely current, but they have also been created in a slim fit, tying in beautifully with the 2019 trend for slimly fitting, tailored menswear. The Love Moschino brand is stamped in rubber on the back pocket. Perfect for cooler days and warmer evenings, so if you like to make the most of summer and burn the midnight oil, these will keep you warm while you do so.
Vivienne Westwood – Green Classic Logo Tracksuit

A simplistic design by the label’s usual standard, this tracksuit would be the perfect casual outfit for Spring weekends. Whether you’re relaxing at home or out and about, this tracksuit provides comfort and sophistication in bucket loads.
MCQ by Alexander McQueen – Black/White Swallow Pullover Hoodie
Bedecked with their classic swallow print, this hoodie from Alexander McQueen will really make you stand out. The contrast of the design in white and the black background channels the current monochrome trend.

Keep it simple and pair with black trousers and trainers, or introduce a splash of colour if you’re more of the daring type. No matter what you team it with, this hoodie will stick in people’s minds!
Buscemi – Military Green 100MM Clean Nubuck Hi-Tops
We hope you’re not bored of sage because here it is again! We weren’t lying about it being THE colour for 2019. These stunning high-top trainers from Buscemi are fashioned in a military style. Gold accents shine out against the green backdrop for that expensive feel. The shoes are crafted in excellent quality suede, a mark of luxury typical of the brand. These versatile trainers would look fantastic paired with your favourite pair of joggers, or for a more smart/casual look, pair with dark jeans and a polo.
True Religion – Dusty Olive Camo Tracksuit
Finishing on the military theme, this tracksuit from True Religion is made from a soft cotton blend and is perfect for any casual Springtime gathering. Featuring the brand’s signature metal horseshoe logo on both the sweatshirt and joggers, this tracksuit will become a wardrobe staple, and likely will continue to be so for many seasons to come due to the timeless camouflage design.
