From high brands to streetwear, fashion seems to have clear in mind the next direction to take, focusing on squarer lines, minimal colour variations and a range of more resistant and raw fabrics. All of this can be categorized as workwear and, as if this was not enough, Kanye as usual has given us the ultimate feeling, galaxies away from what we can understand. He was not completely understood at the last Met Gala, when Ye opted for a Dickies Eisenhower jacket, price: $45. 

In general, workwear is characterized by minimal complexity in design and colors, with zips, denim and a large number of pockets, to replicate precisely those technical clothes used by painters, workers, masons, for example with overalls and cargo pants.
