The Pre-Fall Menswear collections go from preppy punk to creative eclecticism.
THE in-between season of Pre-Fall allows designer labels the chance to explore. While some took the opportunity to make a political statement, others used their designs to illustrate their creative vision.
Here’s a look at five notable Pre-Fall 2017 menswear collections that made a statement.
The place: an ancient palazzo. The time: an indeterminate future. The collection: a well-curated clash between dystopia and hope, as presented by famed Moschino designer Jeremy Scott.
For Pre-Fall, the label drew inspiration from military uniforms. Olive cotton drill and parachute silk are issued as jumpsuits, together with elongated MA1s, field jackets and camouflaged combat separates.
There are elements of hard and soft at play too. Consider the Moschino-classic black leather biker pieces. These now come fashioned with gold panels on the back of the floral jacquard material.
“We have to fight – for rights, for beauty, for everything we believe in because it’s being ripped away from us. And trying to find any bits of beauty that you can and almost making emblems and totems of them,” said Scott.
