ABSENT (@ABSENTCLOTHING) remains undefeated as their highly-anticipated 30 September 2019 drop has come and gone. In under two years, the Chicago-based brand has built quite the renowned reputation amongst all creatives and supporters alike; this unconditional love seemed to have been sparked from their original rhinestone collection and has developed into an unstoppable force while simultaneously raising standards in the ever-changing fashion industry. Parker Absent is the mastermind behind this brand, and his pieces keep improving with each release. 

This particular capsule consists of five different types of t-shirts, three new hoodies, matching sweatpants, a work jacket (which included a complimentary candle), two anoraks/zip-off pants, three chains, a ring, socks, and a blanket. The iconic rhinestone hoodies returned in two new colorways; a radiant teal and a soft purple. Black rhinestone hoodies made a comeback for those who missed out on the first releases. It’s hard to choose a favorite piece from this collection. The MLB chains were an ingenious addition as they replaced the classic baseball bat with a scythe. The logo chains are up-to-par with the legendary rhinestone design only reimagined so Parker’s brilliance can be worn almost every day without washing.

In conclusion, this drop is one that anyone who missed out on should feel sorry for doing so. If this is the case, however, no one should worry, because ABSENT is only at the beginning of their takeover. Head over to the site and sign up for their email list here.
