Egonlab Proves It Deserves a Spot in Your Wardrobe
Lately, it’s becoming harder and harder to ignore the growing interest in classic menswear. Obviously, classic pieces are inherently always popular, but a look back at the most recent Fashion Month will proffer a mountain of examples that tailoring with a twist is on the rise. And it’s this ‘twist’ that makes the return of more formal styles so interesting this time.
Young brands and storied houses alike are flipping the script when it comes to getting suited and booted. Whether that’s flourishes in material like sheer shirts, or variations in proportions to emphasize bolder silhouettes, looking to classic styles no longer means playing it safe. One of the labels that have really caught our eye in this field lately is Egonlab.
The brand which opened its doors right before the pandemic set in has not only weathered the storm but actually come out of it as a standout name. Its Fall 2022 show in Paris was the final proof we needed that Egonlab is a name to remember.
Quilted silk overshirts shared the runway with couture evening dresses, flashes of tarot-card detailing, and even tracksuits all wrapped up with a heavy dose of religious imagery. The Egonimati collection proved the wild range of the young brand and solidified us as dedicated followers.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite pieces from the latest collection that prove it’s earned a spot in your wardrobe.
Much of the label’s offering is characterized by a fixation on the medieval ages and the art at the time. This is the trench coat to end all trench coats.
We already spoke about the beauty of the brand’s tailoring and here’s an example of it. Clean but attention-grabbing, it’s a masterclass in modern suiting.
Up there with the best graphic shirts of the season, this Cuban-collar shirt features a colorful dragon drawing against a crisp white cotton backdrop.
Next time you’re sitting for a regal portrait, you know exactly what to wear.
Detailed front and back, this floaty viscose shirt perfectly exemplifies how the brand can do the classics with a fully modern inflection. Whether you’re coupling with streetwear styles or tailored pieces, this shirt works.
One of our stars of the recent collection, this quilted shirt stole our hearts on the runway so it’s a must-cop this season.
This semi-sheer base layer is a bold starting point for summer outfits. Play around with plain layers like a short-sleeve white shirt on top for maximum effect.
A neutral hoodie never goes amiss, no matter what the season. The Mumus Hoodie features a surprisingly cute dragon graphic to the reverse.
Exclusive to SSENSE, this Cuban-collar shirt is cut to a striking oversized fit that offers up a lot of room for breathing (or layering) this summer.
How do you reconcile a medieval, gothic runway show and a collaboration with Sergio Tacchini? We’re not sure but that’s exactly why we love this label so much.
