In 2018 — when the Council of Fashion Designers of America nominated Virgil Abloh for Designer of the Year with his label Off-White — streetwear was set as one of the leading trends of the moment. And with Abloh at the helm of Louis Vuitton’s menswear division, he’s bringing streetwear to the world of luxury fashion and making one thing known about the urban aesthetic: The hype is real. But in case you needed more proof, Zara is releasing the second iteration of its SRPLS collection soon — and you’ll want to set your alarms for the drop.
As streetwear continues to make its way into closets around the world, Zara is taking on an elevated approach with its SRPLS line. Rather than statement-making neon colors and logo-emblazoned items, the collection — which channels utilitarian silhouettes of the military — features a streamlined range of slouchy and relaxed pieces that will go easily with your everyday wardrobe.
Beginning April 30, the collection will be available on Zara's website as well as at its SoHo store in New York if you want to shop for pieces in person. Be sure to mark your calendars — because if past launches from the fashion label have been any indication, this drop won’t be in stock for long.
From a cool moss green jumpsuit and an airy slip dress to powder blue and pink parachute-like cargo pants, the latest round in Zara’s SRPLS line feels a touch softer than its first collection, which launched in November 2018. The collection also boasts lightweight trench coats and military jackets to style over any spring ensembles as you move through the remaining moments of transitional weather.
Along with all of that, you'll find easy layering pieces in military-inspired knitwear, such as a ribbed sweater with cold shoulder details and a fishnet Henley top. If you want to wear something on the bolder side, opt for the camouflage shirt and pants, which subtly incorporates tropical details such as palm trees and floral motifs.
If you want to fully sport the army-inspired look, finish off your ensembles with chic accessories such as camouflage belts, sandals, boots, and hats. And thanks to the neutral color palette, these pieces — along with the rest of the collection — can be worn well into fall.
According to a statement from the brand, Zara’s latest SRPLS collection is not only inspired by military uniforms, but also the “rebels and rockers” that wore them. If you consider yourself to be among the rebellious spirits — or if you simply want to add an edge to your outfits, be sure to head to Zara on April 30.
