Nevermind that Karl Lagerfeld once said, "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants". If you run around a concrete jungle tending to never-ending tasks, wear some sweatpants you will. Not just any old pair that won't cut it for even the post-gym walk home, but a sleek, fitted black beauty from South Korean label Wooyoungmi.
In a perfect mesh of urban sophistication-meets-edgy street, the sportswear-styled collection takes inspiration from the back alleys of New York City, in particular the avant-garde graffiti art of Jean-Michel Basquiat. This essence is reflected as graphical prints imposed upon luxurious tailoring and complemented by hues of black, navy and grey. With jackets, tees, trousers and knits, the collection will take you from day to night, from the boardroom to the streets.
Uniting stellar crafting from Wooyoungmi and the fashion savoir-faire of Mr Porter, expect nothing less than a collection of quintessential core pieces where comfort is key and style is sartorial.
