Designer hoodies have had an iconic presence in the last decade, on the runways to the streets and even the silver screen. From Givenchy’s Paris logo Distressed Hoodie spotted on L.A. Laker’s Brandon Ingram to Kanye West in an oversized Vetements sweatshirt, this seemingly basic garment isn’t just about comfort but also showing that you can embrace streetwear with a flair.

Fresh from 2018’s Spring/Summer runways, here are 5 styles we know you’ll want to get your hands on.


Gucci Guccify Cotton Sweatshirt with Dragons

Gucci brings you a sleek black hoodie straight from its 2018 Cruise collection. Embroidered with Chinese dragons and floral motifs for a touch of Asian exoticness, perhaps the coolest detail yet is the gothic “Guccify” applique across the chest, a term that the creative director adapted from sleuthing on Instagram.

Kenzo Reversible Windbreaker with Hood

This reversible hooded windbreaker is your answer to having a single outerwear for both your social and active lifestyle. Featuring a multitude of colourful printed slogans with the ‘Hyper Kenzo’ design on one side, and solid black with the classic ‘Kenzo Paris’ wordings running along the hem on the other, it pairs easily with smart casuals or with shorts, whether you are cycling or sailing.

Balenciaga Big Fit Cardigan

Seen on Balenciaga’s SS18 Runway Show, the Big Fit cardigan is worn oversized for a long fit. Coupled with pure breathable cotton composition for loose comfort and minimalistic styling in white, this light Zen-like piece can be thrown over should you need quick cover from a drizzle or draft.


Givenchy Paris Destroyed Hoodie

Hot off its Spring 2018 collection, Givenchy showcases a cotton distressed hoodie in calming light blue. A white ‘Givenchy Paris’ logo on the front completes the soothing aesthetics, making it an ideal complement to light jeans and bright sneakers.

Dolce & Gabbana Sweatshirt in Cotton Jersey

Simplicity is key in Dolce & Gabbana’s back-to-basics cotton jersey sweatshirt. In pure black with metallic zippers and drawstring tips, this is the hoodie for the man who appreciates essential styling and functionality. Wear it with your sweatpants or slacks, you’ll still look just as good.
