The Elder Statesman Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
Craft and comfort were the names of the game at The Elder Statesman's Fall 2019 line. We saw a bit of an evolution from this streetwear staple, and with this line, he's telling the fashion world that he's ready to go beyond his comfort zone. Ironically, however, his clothes this season gave us, and most likely a whole lot of customers come fall, a great sense of comfort that's not found in any other label!

Comfort is cool, and for Fall 2019, no other collection was as cool as The Elder Statesman‘s. Continuing his optimistic and nomadic bohemian narrative from Pre-Fall 2019, there was a bigger focus on craft this time around. Just look how fine the woven pieces are; as if it took years to perfect those coats and cardigans. The tie-dye items were a slight nudge to the 90s—a big trend nowadays—but were approached with such an ease that they looked undeniably contemporary. Despite the nonchalant vibe, however, there were some looks that upheld a little refinement, showing a bit of an evolution from this streetwear brand. One is the orange off-the-shoulder jumpsuit in what looked like fine cashmere. Such sophistication seemed highly unlikely from the label, which makes it an even more interesting piece. The same could be said for that billowy high-necklined top with the winged sleeves—pure elegance. Though freeing, it’s definitely new from what we’ve come to expect from The Elder Statesman. With this collection, Greg Chait just proved that he’s ready to go beyond his streetwear origins and go a more luxurious route. We’re all excited about that!
