ASOS Black AW13 Collection
Internet retail giant ASOS has hinted toward a new trend with the release of their AW13 Black collection. The line makes an awaited return with a sport-come-space feel this season.
A sportswear aesthetic with futuristic detailing is aided by the use of jersey, knitwear, denim and tailoring, with complementary accessories and a strong emphasis on athletic styling and fit.
On trend red and black check prints appear in blocks on sleeves as well as finishes on both jackets and vests to give the pieces a chic hunter gatherer flavour. The substantial use of print is smartly kept from becoming overwhelming with the use on charcoal tones to soften the appearance.
Items from ASOS Black’s suiting selection boast an impressive upgrade this season. The line heavily utilises nylon fabrics with cut and sew panelling. Bomber jackets and parkas featured in the outerwear department are given similar twists with contemporary detailing focusing on performance.
Accessories include ubiquitous snapbacks and backpacks, designed to have a clean, futuristic feel. Shoes are equally modern, with elements including contrasting, translucent cup soles.
The ASOS Black AW13 menswear collection is available to purchase now ASOS.com, with prices ranging from £18 to £100.
