En Noir Spring/Summer ’13 Lookbook

While fashion has always been cool it hasn’t necessarily been cool to be fashionable – a redundant statement on the surface but hear us out. Can you imagine Michael Jordan or any of the ’90s greats swagging out court-side decked in couture? Don’t get us wrong, Michael and the boys were always well turned out but fashion wasn’t a priority. In recent years, ballers and entertainers alike have morphed into deferential disciples of style and the NBA all stars weekend has become their fashion mecca.

This year, between fast breaks and high-flying dunks, fashion followers like LeBron and Dwayne Wade perched court-side rocking En Noir leather sweatpants. Adapting the slouchy sportswear silhouette and adding a more luxurious leather aesthetic, En Noir elevated the humble sweatpant beyond a pedestrian piece of sportswear. En Noir is joined by a slew of high-end designers –Hood by Air and Mark McNairy in particular – in this menswear movement, where the lines between the boutique and the street continue to blur. Maintaining that streetwear heritage while augmenting their designs with a couture edge, these designers cater to the sartorial need of sports stars turned style savants.
