Here at LA CANVAS, we love a good ol’ fashioned battle of the sexes. So, for this week’s edition of VENUS//MARS, we present the unparalleled legging savants over at See You Monday. Since its initial conception, SYM has been outfitting trend-savvy ladies while staying true to their Downtown Los Angeles roots, boasting that phrase we Angelenos love so much: ‘Made in L.A.’ Their target audience is primarily female, but, given the progression of streetwear over the past few seasons, in comes the inevitable #BlurredLines of menswear and womenswear.
With luxury sportswear hitting its peak this past spring, there have been many interpretations of the traditional bandana print over the course of the last year. F-ck 1999, looks like we’re partying like it’s ‘03 Bonnie and Clyde with our bucket hats and bandana-print-everything because now the print and bold colors are more about nostalgia and iconoclasm and less about gang affiliation. Cool. Finally, we bring you the power of the paisley in all of its uni-sexiness as our LAC team styles See You Monday’s Luda Leggings from both the female and male perspective. Looks like the ladies might have some competition– maybe. So you tell us, who wore it best?
Still can’t decide? Let’s take this friendly competition to the streets of DTLA where the SYM leggings can exist in their natural habitat.
