Someone who is able to blend vintage, high fashion and streetwear into one concise style, we caught up with Daryl Kim to discuss his favourite products to rock. The Australian sharp-dresser can most often be found rocking garments with the perfect distressing and/or sun fading alongside a selection of boxy-fitting and contemporary items.
Getting an insight into how he dresses, we asked the man behind the Instagram account @uniformsofdaryl to outline his ten favourite items. Selecting styles from his wardrobe and wishlist, he gave us a rundown of what makes each piece a must-have item. Check out the full list below.
FromTheFirst Diego Boots
Everyone needs a Cuban-heeled boot in their wardrobe. I am personally a fan of the sharper-looking silhouette that pairs perfectly with any trousers.
Levi's 517 Jeans
My favourite cut out of the Levi’s range. Older models tend to fit better, having a higher waist and can be sourced second hand. Can be worn with sneakers, boots, loafers, anything – you name it.
Akila Apollo Sunglasses
Although a thicker frame, it does well with flowing naturally with the face shape. The red lens gives a pop of colour and makes you feel like Tony Stark.
MoojiMoojiUS Cropped Hoodie
It’s rare to find a boxy and cropped hoodie that has a perfect fade to it. This has both and is my most worn hoodie.
Probably my favourite boots in my current rotation. The leather quality is buttery once broken in and will last a lifetime. The perfect high rise that hugs your ankle and gives an amazing silhouette.
Hanes White Tank Top
Hear me out. I think I could wear a tank top with every outfit possible. It is perfect for layering and due to the lower neckline, it exposes more of your neck and clavicle which can be very flattering. Try it out!
COS Shoulder Bag
Versatile and very practical. Being so lightweight, it can be taken anywhere plus the array of zips is a big bonus.
The essential beloved grey sweatpants is a must-have for all people. It can be dressed up or down but most importantly provides maximum comfort and style with minimal effort.
Collegium Pillar Destroyer High
The mocha tones with the cream sole give off a vintage feel with modern technology. Perfect for all seasons.
Bode Crochet Big Top Shirt
A beautiful crochet shirt with a pop of colour for those summer days in Europe on a yacht. Paired with linen pants and a cowboy hat…one day.
