CRAIG GREEN FALL WINTER 2017/18 MEN’S COLLECTION LONDON

By Crash redaction

A CLOSER LOOK AT CRAIG GREEN’S KINGDOM

Following the footsteps of J.W Anderson, Craig Green stands as the child prodigy of fashion among young designers in London. Rewarded by the British Fashion Designer Award, he is distinguished by its outstanding way of deconstructing the garment and using atypical fabrics. If the men’s wardrobe was more confined to uniforms, he offered its own definition of male fashion by reconciling the functional to the conceptual. With sober silhouettes, where velvet meets tapestry, Green imagines through his collection a very special urban poetry. Far from the anti-conformist cliché, here the conceptual fashion does not rhyme with eccentricity. Its silhouettes remain straight and sober, complex but without embellishment.

For the fall-winter 2017/18, from total quilted look and rectangular tapestry pieces tied together to form a psychedelic patchwork, it takes only a step between the sober and the conceptual. Large pieces of Persian carpets are thus juxtaposed and evoke without mannerism a certain exoticism varying between the Persian painting and the samurai’s costume, while others evoke the costumes of fishermen. With a certain sense of cross borders exploration, Green pays tribute to the Mediterranean Sea, theater of nomadic epics with divine creatures and navigators in search of adventures.
