5 CULT MENSWEAR BUYS TO INVEST IN

Heading to the biggest party of the year? These are the shoes to dance all night in.

WORDS: MARNI ROSE MCFALL

The easiest way to take your wardrobe to the next level? Investing in a cult buy. These are the pieces; the pieces that sell out almost instantly, pop-up all over your Instagram feed and become staples in your wardrobe. It’s like a list of fashion’s greatest hits, now, that’s what we call cult buys. And we’ve rounded up the five key cult pieces you need to invest in this season. From Prada to Gucci, it’s time to meet the cult buys of the season.

1. THE IT KNIT

Looking for a statement look that simultaneously captures everyone’s attention while also feeling effortless? Of course, you are. And Gucci’s knit sweater vest is the one. In rosy red (one of the season’s key hues) covered with Gucci monogram (because logomania is absolutely still a thing) and in a classic preppy cut (that cult icon Chandler Bing would more than approve of) it ticks every box.

2. THE ELEVATED ESSENTIAL

Last year, Prada broke the internet with their viral tank top. And this year, they’ve taken things to a whole new level with the Duvet Gilet. Yes, you read that right. In a fresh shade of pearly white, the vest is all-puffed up to the point that it looks almost cloud-like and is finished with the signature branding. Basically, it’s a totally innovative take on a staple that could only be the work of Miuccia Prada and Raf Simmons, and you need to add to your wardrobe asap.

3. THE ULTRA-LUXE TOTE

Question: what’s our favourite bag right now? Answer: it’s the Bottega Veneta Borsa Bag. For AW23, the Italian powerhouse did what they do best, and created a season-defining bag that would instantly be the envy of, well, everyone. In a larger-than-life oversized fit, it’s covered in the brand’s signature Intrecciato weave for added appeal. Basically, it’s the kind of IYKYK luxury pick that we’ve all been coveting this year, so it’s no surprises it’s achieved cult status.

4. THE CULT SNEAKERS

If anyone knows about creating cult picks, it’s Off-White. The brand that pioneered a new generation of luxury style, their greatest hits feature more cult buys than we can count. But one of the most notable, is the Out Of Office sneaker. Low-rise, chunky and effortlessly cool, there’s a reason they’re the gold standard of streetwear sneakers. And right now, this monochromatic pair have us obsessed. Can we kick it? Yes we can.

5.THE PRINTED T-SHIRT

Bold prints + big graphics + an oversized fit = the cult tee we can’t stop talking about. And naturally, it’s the work of Represent. On a jet-black background, this t-shirt takes the brand’s signature ‘Giant’ print – a pegasus being ridden by a soldier – and prints it big on the back and small on the front. The finishing touch? The signature ‘R’ logo in a hit of highlighter yellow.
