This Monday 27 brands introduced their new collections among which were Rag & Bone, Proenza Schouler, Jeremy Scott, and DKNY.
Rag & Bone
Perhaps the key word that summarizes the entire collection is minimalism: minimalistic choice of colors and minimalistic combinations. In short, aesthetics was present in the collection. There is a feeling that the designer is trying to find a ‘golden middle’ between restraint and freestyle. Did he manage to do that? By the way, have you ever seen male models wearing high heels?

Strips clearly dominate in this collection, as well as accessories that are complementing the look. A sweater tied to the fur coat is something new, but can be considered a successful experiment. Time will show.

This collection was kind of an advertising of Susan Seidelman’s Smithereens movie. It is done in the conception of pop-art movement. Jeremy Scott transformed the plot of Smithereens by focusing on the sex theme shown in certain prints of women’s legs on the men’s shirt, as well as inscriptions on the clothes saying “HOT”, “Rated X” and also collars on the model’s neck. Those who have watched the movie can decide whether Jeremy Scott successfully transformed the movie’s aura into this collection.

The DKNY collection clearly met all the expectations of young people. Sportswear, brand bras, plain suits, hoodies, long sleeves, socks above the knee and ‘oversize’ were all a part of the DKNY look. One thing was clear – creative directors, Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow have changed the style of the brand.
