SPRING/SUMMER 2018 COLLECTION

The Continuum Collection mainly is fueled by the energy of Morocco, as alluded to in Henri Matisse’s The Moroccans, and reflects a Miles Davis inspired effortlessness.  Rendered in bold, monochromatic colors such as taupe, mauve and sapphire blue, recycled poly and natural fabrics such as linen, cotton, poplin, canvas, seersucker and twill provide versatility and functionality to the sublime designs.  The garments feature seamless construction and silhouettes are both fluid and structured as iterated in the blazers and trousers.  Rhythmic patterns of the Moroccan mosaic from the Bahia Palace in Marrakesh adorn the cuffs and neckline of transitional jackets and accent the variegated tunics.  The double-breasted seersucker suit is treated with green tea and coffee, giving an edge to Southern classic attire.  The elongated linen tunics with their clean lines, offer easy sophistication and comfort.  The attention to functionality in movement also references a reinterpretation of high school sport uniforms.  This is menswear outside the confines of tradition, meant to be worn without restrictions or boundaries, in a nod to aesthetic freedom.
