“I am happy living simply / like a clock, or a calendar,” wrote Marina Tsvetaeva in 1919; a hundred years later, her words inspired the debut offering from MYGESMART, a sub-label of Chinese streetwear imprint MYGE. The brand channels Tsvetaeva’s modesty by way of self-serving sweaters, cut immensely oversized and emblazoned with phrases like “Cozy” and “Leisurely.”
Earth tones and neutral shades inform the new wares, which range from huge hoodies to elbow-length tee-shirts — finished with tags stitched to the shoulder seams — atop relaxed, thigh-length shorts and relaxed jeans and anchored by chunky New Balance 993 sneakers. Tall athletic socks, dad caps, minimalist totes and MYGESMART-branded shirts accompany the other effortless layering pieces, all of which are cut from mid-weight fleece-lined cotton for extreme comfort. Ideal for running to the store or lounging around the house, this is clothing made for a life lived simply.
MYGESMART’s goods are only available in China by way of stores like YOHO.
A similar sense of slouch informs Sillage’s own Fall 2020 offering.
