precious cargo


When I worked at Lucky Magazine, I loved contributing to an annual story called "The Next Big Thing," which predicted future fashion trends, including micro ones. My wagers were usually spot on, so today I am going to forecast with confidence that cargoes are up and coming. They are showing up as shorts, above, recently photographed in Copenhagen, with a borrowed-from-the-boys or vintage aura, but made modern and feminine with heels or slinkier separates. Good examples: this and this. Alexa Chung, below, the inveterate fashion bellwether and the first to try and validate new silhouettes, is already on board this trend with her cargo jeans and pants, below. The streamlined, straight-leg silhouette keeps them polished and everyday-wearable. I am into these iterations from Marant Etoile, 7 For All Mankind and Citizens of Humanity (also here), pictured below.
