Cargo Pants Had a Huge Year & Bella Hadid Nailed Them With This Reese Cooper Fit
Highsnobiety’s Fitmas Calendar is a recap of 2019’s best celebrity style. Throughout the month of December, we’ll be looking back at one fit each day, diving deeper into why it worked and how you can achieve the look.
Who: Bella Hadid
The outfit she’s wearing: Reese Cooper Spring/Summer 2020 utility vest and cargo pants.
Where and when: Paris, November 2019
Editor’s Notes: Back in November, Bella Hadid balanced a green knit zip-up vest with industrious cargo pants, recalling the mid-’00s girl-group era of fashion. Cargos enjoyed something of a renaissance in 2019, with newcomer brands like Heliot Emil providing the classic army trousers with a tech-heavy, contemporary revamp. Other versions bordered on the avant-garde, as Travis Scott demonstrated in April.
The look is pulled from Reese Cooper’s SS20 collection, which was themed around a fictional high school, imbuing Cooper’s streetwear staples with a collegiate twist. Hadid – wearing the full look with a pair of clean Nike Air Force 1s – has accessorized with two iPhones, a disposable camera, and a JUUL. Think of it as the nostalgic millennial starter pack.
The whole ensemble speaks to streetwear, high fashion, and the modern struggle to possess something tangible and real (like an IRL photograph) in the digital hellscape of 2019 and beyond.
