We’ve gone heavy on the graphics for this week’s Wellgosh Wears, combining bold and neutral colours to create this versatile look. Taking inspiration from one of the Louvre’s most famous attractions, ‘La Liberté Guidant le Peuple’ by Eugène Delacroix, New Era add a touch of culture to an adjustable 6-panel cap with a bold allover print, curved visor and embroidered logo branding. This cap is easy to style with a wide colour palette, despite the complexity of the print, and can be worn with bold colours as well as more subtle, monochrome looks. As a juxtaposition, the tongue-in-cheek stylings of Market shine through in the ‘Running Away’ t-shirt and its bold, cartoon graphic print featuring an angry lawnmower hot on the tail of an escaping flower. Market has solidified its position as an instantly recognisable streetwear brand, taking cues from bootleg and gift shop t-shirts seen around the world.
For the bottom half, a monochrome look balances out the louder top half, with a pair of heavily embroidered sweatpants from the streetwear wildcard of the moment, Pleasures. The ‘Virgin’ sweatpants have a cosy cotton and polyester fleece blend with a comfortable relaxed fit, decorated with white contrasting motifs of ‘Our Lady of Guadalupe’ embroidered to the legs, with a Pleasures logo sat just about the rear pocket. On foot this week, we see the return of an incredibly popular silhouette from sportswear juggernauts, Nike. These 97’s come in a tonal black upper, with 3M reflective features and an embroidered side swoosh, sat atop a contrasting white full-length Air Max midsole complementing the sweat pants. Tying in with this theme, the Payton hip bag from Carhartt is a minimalistic side bag with an embroidered logo that can be worn on the hip or over the shoulder. A fully adjustable strap allows for a custom fit, with a durable Cordura construction, a large main front pocket and a smaller rear pocket.
