BAND OF OUTSIDERS
London Mens Fashion Week A+W '18


january 2018
 

Band of Outsiders’ key inspiration for FW18 is the idyllic winter-sport holiday. In tune with Band’s philosophy, the collection consists of a complete wardrobe for tongue-in-cheek everyday life.

As an ode to the great snowy mountains, this season’s main colours were named after iconic ski-resorts around the world; such as Verbier Grey, Aspen White, Telluride Red and Zermatt Beige. Print names allude to winter high life, like the Baring Polar Bear, the Band Skier, the Mountain Runner,
The Alpine Crosser, The Ridge Runner and the Jaeger Blizzard. Classic pinstripe gets twisted and turned in the Slope print, also found in Band’s newest collaboration, with Stutterheim, on their iconic raincoats. It returns as a gentle background to Band’s seasonal printed skiers.

A variety of lush materials fit for winter are present in this collection,with a big focus on outerwear and high quality wool knitwear, on which Band collaborated with The Woolmark Company and their sourcing tool ‘The Wool Lab’, featuring some of the best Merino wool yarns in the world. The unique
teddy bear coat from FW17 makes a booming come back, in polar bear white this time, with a red and blue belt for contrast.

Indoor winter times are enjoyed Band-style too, with the introduction of comfy pyjamas. Shearling coats are another first, as well as some great wool accessories like beanies and scarves. Printed and embellished denim and corduroy trousers match the warm, wool tops and coats perfectly.

Per Band staple, the tailoring is nonchalant, with Band’s now renowned jackets and ‘formal tracksuits’, redesigned for daily wear. The Band bomber reappears in new prints, and in versions with this season’s polar bear or nostalgic Alpine inspired Band logo on the back.

EDWARD CRUTCHLEY
London Fashion Week A+W '18


january 2018
 

Edward Crutchley returns to the London Fashion Week Men catwalk for his second season in an exploration of communication, looking to the past and the present for visual cues that transcend language and can still meaningfully convey ideas in our contemporary world.

Heritage, tradition and spiritually remain central to Crutchley’s work with this season seeing a fresh perspective on globalism and how this cultural melding has also created space for cultural expression and sharing. Looking at ‘Journey to The West’; one of the Four Great Works of Chinese literature and it’s modern revival in film, a tale of legendary pilgrimage out of one’s own culture and into the unknown, as popular today as it was in the 16th Century and strongly rooted in folk religion, mythology, philosophy and spiritual insight. Crutchley also references the piecemeal appropriation of Celtic mysticism as a touchstone for wider Western concepts of spirituality contrasted and counter-imposed against Grecian classicism.

Edward Crutchey have collaborated this season with emoji® - a playful and truly contemporary brand founded on the premise of a globally comprehensive visual language able to convey concepts and ideas across linguistic and cultural boundaries. emoji® is the owner and licensor of the registered emoji® trademark and more than 7,000 icons, patterns and stickers that are central to how we communicate today with direct links back through the ages to pictograms – the most ancient form of written communication used from China to Egypt to the Americas. This collaboration is a first for emoji® within the luxury market. Selecting icons from the emoji® library that support the narrative and storytelling around this seasons theme Crutchley contrasts what appears to be a classically inspired print story with flashes from the present day.

Continuing his exploration into contemporary artisanal craftsmanship this season Edward has collaborated with Kopenhagen Fur on two mink garments. Using a traditional hand cut and dyed intarsia technique with new techniques of leather strip insertion inspired by samples in Kopenhagen Fur’s Ateliers collection. Through a combination of Edward’s textile expertise and the exceptional skill of the contemporary furrier these pieces have pushed the limits of what is achievable with the media of fur.

This season’s collection explores the use of graphics across different textile media to create a contrast of texture and sense of richness. Looking at artisanal craft techniques and how these are still relevant to the future of contemporary fashion grounds this season’s mood in a tactile context. Crutchley expands upon an identifiable silhouette where the contrast of volume and drape creates space and movement beyond the limits of the body. Shapes take inspiration from cultures across the the world and through the ages; YSL’s ‘Scandal’ collection, chi poa, Les Incroyables,1960’s Mod dresses, zoot suits and the L.A. riots of 1943, TLC’s ‘Creep’ video and early 1980’s Armani and the beginnings of Power Dressing.

Inspired by 1990s films, such as Danny Boyle´s Trainspotting, WEER´s collection finds its roots within the look of classic workwear, combined with the acid culture of the decade. Strong tones + reflection effects are key this season, from fluorescent orange and fuchsia pink to olive green and silver accents, balanced with white, black and pastel tones.

Several garments are transformable, such as a long shirt dress with detachable sleeves or a short jacket with zippered panels. Pants are either skinny or relaxed, while military shirts are reinterpreted with a cape sleeve detail.

Korean designer Sunyuul Yie is know for her statement pearl-embelished velvet footwear. Her latest S+S ‘18 collection is brimming with similarly fabulous styles, from fringed mules to sophisticated square-toed pumps and new silver hardware. 

 
YUUL YIE The Love Potion 1961 Spring Summer Collection 2018 by David Gomez for LE MILE Magazine_2.
 

Founded in 2013 by Korean designer Sunyuul Yie, Yuul Yie represents a new wave of cult luxury leather goods. Specialising in footwear, the brand's collection is made with leather sourced from Italy’s finest tanneries. From reimagined Mary Jane loafers to colour block mules, everyday shoes are punctuated with statement design, trapezoidal shapes and a focus on comfortable wearability.

 For SS18, Yuul Yie draws inspiration from the colours and romanticism of the 1960s – a decade of counterculture which saw a shift in the long‐held norms of behaviour and style. 
From ‘pilgrim pumps’ featuring exaggerated buckle details to pearl embellished backless loafers, the brand has once again sought to reinvent classics. Patent leather loafers feature tones of dim grey offset by powder blues. Satin slingback pumps, a new offering from the brand, come in deep violet, forest green, royal blue, golden mustard and black.

For S+S '18 GOETZE introduces a collection influenced by streetwear elements from the 90s and classical Mediterranean summer wardrobe. The exemplary GOETZE sleeve construction, the meticulous attention to details, the precise finishing conjoin the relaxed fits of the S+S '18 pieces, evoking an effortless sportive appeal.

GOETZE has been busy exchanging ideas with friends, and comes up with two exiting collaborations for S+S '18:
The brand teamed up with illustrator Tony Stella, who designed a horse's head print. This classical figurative motif, executed in delicate sky-blue aquarell, is a juxtaposition to the geometrically constructed GOETZE shirt.

GOETZE merges contrary concepts, continuously reinterpreting essential sports and workwear elements with a contemporary and luxurious touch.
