London, UK – The love of utilitarian design and uniforms is still developing in the new collection for Autumn/Winter 2016-2017 by British designer Craig Green.
One can see a show full of carefully thought out craftsmanship in each outfit and with each layer wrapped in detail. The author explores the topics of release and restriction with bondage details made out of martial art belts used in the majority of silhouettes.
As a whole the collection is an interesting concept presenting a mixture of two leading trends of the moment: gender bending and military. Some of the looks can be seen as wearable, but mostly focusing on avant-garde garments presenting the authors fresh ideas and creativity.
The collection features deconstruct materials, which have been cut into unusual shapes, tops and skirts. They have then been tided with belts. Other features include elasticized high-waisted pants with wide legs, coats and jackets with military uniform or martial arts sportswear inspiration behind them. Interesting details include elongated lengths, pinstripe prints, hoodies, big pockets and rivets.
The color palette features dark brown, army green, various shades of grey, black and dark orange. The accessories are extravagant bags in different sizes.
