The study of the inherent possibilities of recognizable products and objects is the design impulse behind the Spring Summer 18 collection.
In this collection, self-alterable silhouettes have been created through the draping of necklines in which two garments are fused. Options for wearing one or the other component arise in this ‘dual’ series: a trench coat with a jean jacket, a nightdress with a leopard spot dressing gown, a utility coat with a biker gilet, a shirt with a long sleeve t-shirt, amongst many variables. Pants, inspired by modular tracksuits, are also interchangeable.
Further transferences from extant culture are observed in the use of store awnings transformed into trousers and fringed sun umbrellas turned into skirts, screen-saver prints, newspaper pages, bank-note scans, “top-case” bags echoing the wing-mirrors evening bags from Fall Winter 17, as well as in jewelry and chain straps cloned from duty-free and souvenir shops.
The exaggeration of everyday styles introduces the season’s severe shoes in the form of super-spiked stilettoes and the platforms inspired and produced by CROCS.
