Fans of the material can cover themselves from head to toe if they so desire, with outerwear, shirts, pants, and even sneakers being constructed in the soft material. Some standouts include the black mockneck sweater from Maison Margiela, the Cav. Empt paneled mesh jacket, a Needles butterfly embroidered T-shirt, and of course the quilted GOLF le FLEUR* x Converse pack.
