Runway Rundown: Naeem Khan Reinvents The Trouser [NYFW]

For the past few years, the trouser has been going through a mid-life crisis of sorts. Whether too casual or too fancy, high-waisted or flared, it seems the trouser can never quite balance its chakras. Enter Naeem Khan, whose 2017 RTW runway collection is a colossal, big bang style rebirth of how the trouser stands as a statement piece. Using velvet fabric and meticulous beading, the ribbon drawstring secured above the belly button, this revamp is an elegant game-changer for the current definition of ‘dress code’. Detailing like studs and beading or a simple singular stripe down the length of the pant leg put to rest any question of whether this is or isn’t a pants kind of occasion (the answer? Always yes). What’s more, the way the fabric falls and moves allows for a flexible, modish strut—keeping the wearer up to speed (sartorially-speaking) for years to come.

Naeem Khan’s collection has removed the learned-leisure mindset of a pair of pants, and elevated their status back to the revered trouser. If you’re considering a style game reboot, this pant’s your answer. Whether paired with a Metallica tee or a killer blazer, without question, make your next RSVP look all about the knickers.
