Regardless of how minimal your wardrobe is, the chances are that there’s at least one printed shirt or graphic tee that can be found in the mix. However, when it comes to graphic pants, it’s a far less common sighting.
The general consensus is to confine loud garments to the torso, with pants being limited to staple jeans or classic workwear silhouettes. Pants are rarely left to be the statement piece in an outfit, and that’s a crying shame.
Sifting through the virtual racks of online retailers, we’ve gone shopping for pants that make a proclamation. And a wide range of stop-and-stare options for the legs come courtesy of some of the brands we stan, from Gerrit Jacob to Ahluwalia.
Our pick of this season’s standout graphic pants is below.
Kid Super Faces Painted Cargo Pants
As is the case with many of Kid Super’s pieces, these pants feature an original artwork by the brand’s founder, Colm Dillane. The painter pants not only feature artwork printed on them but come with a paintbrush holder to aid you in making your own art.
Dries Van Noten Pine Pants
Creating bold prints is Dries Van Noten’s specialty and the designer’s latest collection doesn’t disappoint. The Pine Pants come with a pink floral print all over and are crafted from soft cotton fabric.
Zegna x The Elder Statesman Oasi Cashmere Trousers
These pants might look a lot like your standard pajama pants at first glance but, as the price suggests, they’re much more. Part of ZEGNA and The Elder Statesman’s collaborative collection, which presents their shared commitment to conscious craftsmanship, sustainability, and uncompromising luxury, these cozy pants are crafted entirely from high-grade Cashmere.
Ahluwalia Studio Signature Low Rise Jeans
Laser etched into the denim fabric, these jeans from Ahluwalia feature a sound-wave print all over alongside smiley faces and hits of branding. Far from being your standard everyday jeans, paneling at the front is accentuated through classic brown-hued stitching.
Needles Drawstring Trousers
Wide-legged with a drawstring waistband, these pants from Needles are both comfortable and eye-catching in equal measure. The black pants come with the Japanese brand’s signature paisley print all over.
Our Legacy Vast Cut Pants
A wide-legged style that’s become a staple for Our Legacy, this season sees the Vast Cut Pants crafted from cotton corduroy and printed with a paintbrush-effect blue motif.
Gerrit Jacob Printed Jeans
Having only founded his eponymous brand in 2022, Gerrit Jacob has quickly gained high-profile fans, being worn by the likes of A$AP Rocky and Rosalía. If you aren’t familiar with the Berlin-based designer, striking graphics such as this one are his bread and butter.
Collina Strada Stomp Trousers
Take a walk on the wild side with Collina Strada’s brown fur pants. The wide and slouchy mid-rise denim pants come printed with a furry motif, meaning that no animals were harmed to achieve the look.
Endless Joy Acordeonero Trousers
Describing itself as an art project as opposed to being a fashion brand, Endless Joy uses clothing as the canvas for its original artworks. These pants come with an all-over print depicting cactuses illuminated by the moon.
