You can resist it all that you want, but it’s clear that fashion is taking style cues from motorcycle racing. Over the last few years, we’ve seen the Fox Racing collaboration with streetwear giant Supreme, rappers wearing moto gear in videos and on stage (Migos recently took the stage during their tour with Drake in custom O’Neal/Thor MX/FXR outfits), the officially licensed Honda merchandise at Forever 21, and now a new collection of clothing from Vetements that was “inspired” by the biggest brands in two-wheels. The French fashion house’s 2018 Fall-Winter line includes a number of products that boast racy names bright colors, and clear remakes of logos by GoPro, 100%, ProTaper, Yoshimura, Renthal, and more that skirt trademark laws with subtle changes.

What’s is Vetements? The company is French for “clothing” and under the direction of Demna Gvasalia has become known in fashion for wild items like printed shirts, chunky sneakers, boxy cuts, and official collaborations with shipping firm DHL and athletic brand Reebok. Although the designs of the apparel are different than what many associate with high fashion, products by Vetements are rather pricey and fetch even more money in the resale market. For example, the Race leather derby shoes shown above have a retail price of $1,730.

The products are currently available through a variety of high-end online retailers including Mr. Porter, MATCHESFASHION.COM, Barney’s, and more.
