For the three-day taping of the X Factor's Six Chair Challenge, Louis Tomlinson wore Cottweiler's Signature 3.0 satin-trim track jacket ($383) and pants ($287) paired with Balenciaga's Men's Speed Knit Sneakers ($750).
Inspired by an Argentinian climbing trip, Cottweiler’s AW18 collection features performance-infused pieces like the grey Signature 3.0 track jacket and pants. The jacket is cut with long sleeves and a stand collar and it features blue and lime-green satin trims to the edges of the four front pockets. There are breathable zip fastenings to the underarms and elbows.
The grey Signature 3.0 track pants are cut to a mid rise with a straight leg. The technical trousers incorporate breathable zip fastenings to the back of the knee and concealed pockets in the seam. Blue and lime-green satin also trims the edges of the four front pockets.
Bringing up the bottom, Balenciaga's white elastic knit Speed mid-top sneakers feature a comfortable sock-like fit with neon green and black round laces. They are styled with a rounded toe, two-tone textured sole, logo pull tab at the tongue, and rib-knit topline for a sleek, futuristic look.
