Heavy on suspense with no explanation for any of the imagery, Stella McCartney men’s FW17 film starring Cillian Murphy and directed by Sean Ellis.
Yo buddy give props where they are due man. The braids, the sag, military surplus looks? You listen to 90’s Hip Hop dude? That would be dope. At least I would give your taste some props. I hope you were pumpin’ that Boom Bap hard down the runway for the culture. Instead I see a cover story of a reference to the G suit. The 1940’s invention, a jumpsuit to help pilots fight the effects of gravity. Yeah word word. Respect the architects.
I don’t think J.W. invested much time in his pants this season as he was consumed in customizing each knee-length tunic he walked down the runway. Sick patterns and designs, all types imaginable were available, the pants? Black. It’s all good though cuz dem tops are to be coveted. Keep on talented young man!
Julien David merged his mens and womens shows into one uber show for SS17. It worked to great effect as you could see his overall house theme come to life on both men and women. It was creative in his textile and texture treatments and also retained a light summer vibe. An easily wearable collection that is versatile, eye catching without being too much. Well done.
To be honest I am a total sucka for this style. Monochomatic full on looks. Sleek and slender, the gradient pieces are a nice touch here from Jil Sander mens SS17.
Easy and breezy for SS17 Issey Miyake. The fabrics look light as F, and the colors reflective of the most brilliant days of summer.
HBA you are a provocateur! Some of the buttons you push are too much for me but overall I dig the vision! This season more play with traditional Hip Hop staples, polo shirts and khakis to interesting effect. The use of the arm sling is illin’ and in effect. Salute again!
