Lodz, Poland – A study on contradictions with mixtures of different influences is visible in the premiere collection by young brand from Girl Little Boy. Here nothing is put up straightforward. One can see clashing elements working tougher. Androgyny going from the more masculine side to a more innocent, feminine pole.
The designer experiments with various lengths, details and shapes. Among them we find baggy, voluminous shapes combined with more lean pieces. There are many details like brooches, patchwork, pompons and deconstructed fabrics.
The style combines a grungy edge with a sporty feel in leggings, bomber jackets, bermuda shorts and sweatshirts. Many of the materials are shredded and mixed creating a chaotic, yet interesting effect. The use of black and white plaid, fringing and geometric cut offs make an edgy dynamic. There are many light pink silhouettes with a more delicate vibe, with cute collars, sheer and decorative details. The extremes work in menswear both as womenswear.
As a debut the collection looks strong, with little mistakes. A little avant-garde but with pieces that can work for an everyday look of a modern vigilante.
