I recently had the opportunity to be apart of a project composed of digital illustrations, created by up and coming illustrator/artist by the name of Ivan Kasaj. This was my first time working with someone who lives outside of the United States so I wanted to know a little bit more about him and his journey. The Trnava, Slovakia native Ivan Kasaj, is a freelance illustrator who likes to focus on men’s fashion, and ultimately turned his passion into a job.
When roaming the streets, there are particular images I want to capture. On this particular day I noticed how many people incorporated fatigue into their look, hence inspiring me to dedicate a post to this pattern. Being that army fatigue is at an all time high right now in the the fashion industry, It doesn’t take a fashion Guru to notice the amount of merchandise being made in this traditional pattern. - K.R.T.

I chose the army fatigue cargo pant as an “essential” simply because of it’s versatility and standard. This may also be the reason why this pattern is being used now more than ever in the fashion industry. People are starting to realize that fatigue is the new black, offering a unique pop when needed. While at the same time providing a neutral balance to pop color. This trend has influenced many brands to produce merchandise such as boots, shoes, bags, ties or anything they can think of, with this disruptive pattern material.
