GODS, IDOLS AND OTHER ICONS
Menswear S/S 2019
There is a God for every occasion, an Idol for everyone. We all have our pantheon, our personal temple of Gods, Biblical, Historical or Hollywood gods, whatever works to make sense of this world. In our daily lives we are constantly multitasking and shape-shifting, we are obsessed and very very busy trying to be the office hero. These are times where no one goes unnoticed or can calmly live one’s life. This makes that we crave mystery and adventure, but solitude also. This season menswear, in various shapes and forms, will follow the road of the traveller throughout history. From the ancient sculpturesque Greek Gods, with their draped attire finely carved out of the purest white marble, to the mythical and melancholic icons of the Wild West. Chic, slick, black suits as leaders of a refined rebellion.
Activewear S/S 2019
Contemporary social tribes are akin to the groupings of the animal kingdom; our celebrated diversity connects those who take pride as individuals with others that seek comfort in numbers. In an increasingly challenging and demanding environment, our survival instincts are being put to the test and it seems that nature is our only hope...
The safari camp is therefore the ideal location to reconnect with the cycle of life, a place to contemplate the landscape and forecast the future of fashion. Travellers reflect a taste for the extreme experiences and a love for adventure sports, merging the hybrid idea of garments and accessories that play between the urban and the outdoor. They take their queues from the our wild friends; walking, running, swimming and flying towards the fashions to come. A biosphere of inspiration is unleashed, from organic motifs and graphic markings to wornwear textures and wrinkled hides. Footwear in particular will profit from these multi-dimensional materials, taking outdoor runners and urban hikers to more tactile heights. A sudden shift in the wind will mark a change in color, welcoming a family of beiges as the backbone to the summer season, with bright accents that are taken directly from nature.
