How I See It: Praise FW’17 X Frame Moi

Summer time in Montreal is sweeter than lemonade sipped through a straw made out of sugar cane, but as we all know Autumn is slowly but surely creeping up. So as much as we love basking in the sun and running around with your summer love(s). We eventually need to layer up and get set for cuffing season, which I am not the least bit mad at if you ask me. I had teamed up with PRAISE to shoot and showcase their FW’17 collection, and it excites me just as much as the idea of cuffing season being around the corner.  Not to mention the amazing eyewear by Frame Moi.

Based between Montreal and Los Angeles PRAISE was born to bridge style, quality and value. Since Day 1 PRAISE has been solely committed to bringing innovation across different product categories; emphasizing on fit, fabric, construction and comfort. Everyone is built different in terms of personality, in which can be translated through their personal style. PRAISE has a strong sense of this idea and utilizes this ideology in their approach to defining PRAISE, they are not set to impose a lifestyle or any specific identity. Working with wardrobe staples like distressed denim and the coach jacket, PRAISE keeps a hint of familiarity with a twist of their own interpretations on the classics. Giving PRAISE the ability to cater to anyones personal style while maintaining their value.

Originally designed for the military in the 1930s, cargo pants are loose fitting trousers designed to be extremely durable and be suitable for tough outdoor activities. They are typically characterized by multiple large pockets that were traditionally used to hold field dressings and other equipment. Crafted for paratroopers who literally had to jump out of a plane and be ready for battle the second they hit the ground. The cargo pant has stood through the test of time and carries quite a history.

Despite their reputation for being unfashionable, cargo pants are one of the biggest trend pieces for this season. As skinny trousers become replaced by more baggy alternatives, cargo trousers will become increasingly more popular. They have been looked at as really masculine, and at other moments in time they have been looked at as lame and uncool. They can be spotted being sported by comic book nerds to soldiers on the frontline, ready to step into action at any given moment. The cargo pant is like the double-agent of the menswear world, simultaneously working for both sides of the field – the cool and the uncool.

Arguably the most traditional cargo pant style, Khaki is a colour originally worn by the military for camouflage. Army cargo pants for men have been around ever since they were invented. The practical applications of these trousers make them excellent for extreme jobs. However, the stylish khaki colour also means they’re great for wearing casually. Pair them with a white shirt and a heavy duty workman jacket for a great everyday look.
