10 Pieces We Want From Fear Of God’s Capsule Collection

Words by Ms Fedora Abu

20 January 2022

Whatever the season, the spirit of giving is evergreen at MR PORTER. That’s why this month we come bearing a belated but no less dazzling gift in the form of a Fear of God capsule. Designed by the brand’s founder, Mr Jerry Lorenzo, it’s an exclusive-to-us collection replete with the sort of pieces that have made the label so sought-after (not to mention near-impossible to keep in stock). To discover the must-have sweats, T-shirts and tailoring we’re adding to our Wish Lists, keep scrolling.


The staple sweater

Thanks to a certain viral visitor that’s more than overstayed its welcome, the at-home wing of our wardrobes will no doubt be working hard for the foreseeable future. If yours is in dire need of a new-year upgrade, we propose this cotton-jersey Fear of God Essentials sweatshirt, which will look far from slobbish should you have to pop to the post office.


The trusty boots

It’s not easy to coax steadfast streetwear types out of their sneakers, but Fear of God’s casual spin on the Chelsea boot may just do it. Crafted from a soft nubuck and cast in a neutral peach hue, these sit equally well alongside sweatpants, tailored trousers and denim – and more importantly, come equipped with winter-ready rubber soles.


The hyped-worthy hoodie

The Fear of God Essentials line has achieved mainstay status in our off-duty wardrobes, thanks to the snugness and flattering silhouette of its signature sweats. Now, well-turned-out youngsters who’ve inherited an eye for hype-worthy streetwear – and a precociously luxe taste in fabrics – can themselves subscribe to the school of Mr Jerry Lorenzo with their own pint-sized hoodie.


The sunny kids’ sweatpants

Much like the grown-up iteration, the Fear of God Essential Kids cotton-jersey sweatpants come in a cheerful pastel yellow, feature the brand’s bold logo and are tag-teamed by coordinating hoodies and sweatshirts for an oven-ready outfit. Whether or not to sport your own Essentials sweatsuit in tandem is a decision we’re happy to leave to you.


The roomy backpack

If you’re anything like us, shuttling a raft of techy gear on the Tube between your office and at-home set-up is not something you’re itching to get back to. A functional, handsome and sufficiently capacious commute companion, such as this leather-trimmed logo backpack, is guaranteed to make it more bearable.


The bright T-shirt

Sweats may be Fear of God’s signature, but you’d be wise not to overlook its T-shirts. Try this long-sleeved Essentials tee in sorbet yellow for size. It makes for a toasty extra layer under the matching Essentials hoodie and will work as a sunny standalone piece come spring.


The work-from-anywhere sweatpants

Should sweatpants ever be seen beyond the threshold of one’s own home? That question has been swirling around since the early days of Covid. For those leaning towards the affirmative, this pair will find you among the ranks of the best-dressed lists.


The new-luxury blazer

Suits needn’t be staid, according to Fear of God. If you start off with the classic blazer blueprint, cut for a relaxed fit and lop off the sleeves for good measure, a once-straitlaced workwear staple can become achingly cool and subversive.


The distressed denim shirt

If the Y2K revival isn’t enough to put you on to the charms of distressed denim, then how about Lorenzo’s elusive seal of approval? The secret to making it wearable is a lightly-does-it approach, although this vintage-style shirt paired with the matching mid-rise jeans is a look we’d be eager to see executed, too.


The workwear redux jacket

Much like a full-bodied cabernet, an old-fashioned hard-wearing workwear jacket only gets better with age. This suede-trimmed contrast-collar update may be fresh out of the factory, but the subtly worn, stone-washed finish will leave onlookers none the wiser.
