Trend Alert: Souvenir Jackets and Embroidery
Hello from Los Angeles!
I decided to make an appearance in the city of angels after a long hiatus from visiting! It's always a good time in LA. I just recently purchased one of my favorite pieces of the season, and I couldn't wait to post about it.
Stemming from the roots of Japanese soldiers of war, the souvenir jacket is one of this seasons hottest items. Its classic style has always been a part of modern fashion, but the souvenir jacket is definitely having a moment in today's fashion as well. With its contrasting sleeves and funky embroidered illustrations, it's just one of those perfect rebellious pieces that feels downright badass when you slip it on.
The silky smooth texture and light weight makes it a breeze to wear, especially in this climate. Another characteristic that appeals to me about these jackets are the beautiful colors and designs. These illustrations can get very ornate and intricate, which makes them feel a little more customized and special. I also love the stripe detailing on the wrists and I already knew that I had to wear my go-to Adidas Originals to complete this ensemble – streetwear perfection.
The souvenir jacket is a prominent streetwear piece in today's fashion and I'm excited to see where designers take this aesthetic.
