To find a solid, cheeky wink in a street style offering, especially at a time when brands can take themselves a little too seriously or err on the humourless side, is a pretty rare find. But Cottweiler delivers, again and again.
Case in point? For AW19, we headed to the subterranean levels of London car park to witness the latest tongue-in-cheek offering from the brainchild of Ben Cottrell and Matthew Dainty, and their signature merging of tech, sport and fetish.
This season, sportswear was inspired by “the lost art of cruising.” Yep, you heard right. Sports can be sexy.
Golfers wore a glove draped candidly in the waist of suede trousers. Models peeked out underneath driving caps with nods to the Mercedes symbol – but all in satin, baby. Oversized shirts were iridescent, moss green and semi-sheer (hello, nipples). And scuba-style gear came up high to the neck with retro plastic buckle belts. Cruise away.
