FLANNELS Five: Cult New Season Accessories

FLANNELS Five: Cult New Season Accessories

An oft-overused term in fashion circles, the word ‘cult’ implies that the thing in question has a near-fanatical fan base and an unrivalled status within the community that worships it. We can promise that every piece in the following edit is worthy of the accolade. We’re not over-exaggerating (much). These are cult accessories that will have you channelling BTE (Big Trainer Energy) and the sort of in-the-know swagger usually reserved for street style aficionados and hypebeasts that have just copped. From your soon-to-be-favourite sneakers to the pair of sliders you’ll want to order on receipt of your holiday booking confirmation, these are the new season accessories to invest in now. You heard it here first.

Off-White khaki belt bag

THE BELT BAG

No longer the reserve of American tourists and long-forgotten ‘80s pop stars, belt bags are now the height of cool, and cult (yes we used that word again) streetwear brand Off-White’s khaki version is best in class. Thank you Virgil Abloh for your continued commitment to improving our wardrobes.

White Gucci flashtreck trainers

THE CHUNKY TRAINERS

Gucci’s Flashtreck sneakers combine a futuristic shape and trekking-inspired details with the core principles of a sporty shoe. Simultaneously practical and impractical, familiar and weird, they’re the fashion shoe of the season ticking all the trend boxes.

Gucci leather buckle belt bag

THE LEATHER BELT

Our take on dressing for any occassion is a little more refined this season (watch this space), and nothing says grown-up sophistication like a leather Gucci belt. A fine leather Gucci belt, nonetheless. Dress it down with cargo pants and trainers or boss it in the office with smart trousers and shoes.

  Valentino Camouflage bounce trainers

THE CAMOUFLAGE PIECE

Go undercover with these camouflage Valentino Bounce trainers. A camo-print upper and the brand’s newest Bounce silhouette make for a must-have combo. And the irony is that they’re guaranteed to turn heads.

Off-White industrial sliders

THE SLIDERS

First thing you do after Christmas? Book a holiday to get you through the January blues and out the other side of February with at least half a smile on your face. Then, you order these Off-White sliders in a nifty new colour to take with you. We all need something to look forward to, and having the best pair of slides by the pool is it.
