Milan Street/IMAXtree

Get those hoodies out again! No, not that old sweatshirt from your college days! We are referring to new versions with designer status. Ever since authenticity and core values have become buzzwords (the Paris collection Vètement kind of started it) there have been creative new interpretations of the “hoodie”. And now they are showing up on the street in the fashion capitals often accessorized with status logo bags.
