A tribute to the Black Panthers and Martin Luther King, the Ana Locking AW17/18 collection The Dreamers proved to be a powerful political statement as well as a fashion-forward one. With all models (both male and female) sporting the original black panther-style beret hats, the collection was strong and confident.
While BDMOTP doesn’t normally love men in big furs and leopard print, something about this line just…worked. Any man would adore those drawstring, comfortable pants or the one of the oversized blazers layered over a turtleneck on a chilly winter day. The patterned bomber jackets and printed suit, while slightly outlandish, could be fun for a real statement piece or outfit. And of course, the berets or Dreamer t-shirts could easily be combined with a number of pieces.
