The collection showcased polished street wear that mixes leisurewear and sportswear, and brings color and texture into a traditional urban aesthetic. There is a healthy play on textures and patterns, with graphic elements that hint at street art, and metallic detailing that references the origins of bling.
The freedom to mix and blend is the central idea behind this collection – the unusual juxtaposition of fabrics and textures, patterns and colors, and traditional ideas with hyper-modern experiments, all come together to represent the essence of the collection - “only rule here is that there are no rules”.
