The uber-cool designer called his SS17 collection ’50 Shades of Grey meets Lords of Dogtown’ and saw him end his runway show with a finale announcing a sportsluxe collaboration with Adidas Originals – huge news in fashion circles.
The SS17 collection has a Californian skater vibe – all crop tops, bikini tops and bras as outerwear, frayed denim shorts and sweatshirts. Think punk skater girl hanging out in Venice beach. The collection features a mash-up of fabrics with pinstripes contrasted with lace, deconstructed white stitching and sports leisure inspired pieces like his scuba style dresses with neon piping. The color palette is black augmented with grey and neons.
This is also a designer with outstanding technical skills demonstrated by his beautifully tailored pants, jackets and overcoats with androgynous unisex appeal. This season’s gorgeous silk cut-out gowns are a go-to for sexy evening wear.
