As of late, Kanye West and even the broski Luka Sabbat have been seen rocking fashionable chest rig bags. In case you didn’t know, these intricate statement pieces are made by Matthew Williams’ brainchild, ALYX.
Some of you may remember Matthew from his days with the popular DJ and art collective Been Trill alongside Virgil Abloh and Heron Preston, but now the stylish California native has his eyes set on conquering the fashion world with total creative control. ALYX is a perfect mélange of Punk aesthetics and contemplative craftsmanship, which is why it is lauded by the fashion industry’s swaggiest (is that even a word? Ah well, I made it work though). Founded in February of 2015, the brand initially started out by making women’s clothing and is now slowly becoming a major contender in the menswear scene.
Recently, ALYX unleashed its men's Spring/Summer 2018 collection titled, “Halcyon Blvd,” filled with raw cut leather jackets, leather pants, mesh military vest , cargo pants, chest rigs and many more tactical designs.
Peep the lookbook below:
