Get The Look: To A New Beat

Inspired by Jack Kerouac and Beatnik chic....

Right now, menswear has an affinity for heritage-inspired pieces.

Insouciant Gallic chic and the Americana aesthetic of the Beat Generation have been reconsidered to meet the demands of modern life. Seen at the likes of Bode, Jil Sander and Wales Bonner before being adopted by the high-street, the trend is retrospective without ever feeling old hat.

Zara leading the charge, as usual.
