Lodz, Poland – All is full of love on the runway for Fall Winter 2017/18/ collection staged by the fashion house Ports 1961. The aesthetics of the late Bjork song reflects the new work presented in Milan.
The collection seems to be inspired by the 90s rave culture and Asian street fashion. The lines are crisp, clean and simple. The form is more and more youthful and sporty as the collection evolves. Futuristic minimalism is paired with various details like prints, buckles, straps and color blocking. This is a clever use of details which gives the clothes some animation and energy.
On the catwalk one can find in the Ports 1961 collection capes of different lengths, sweatshirts, bomber jackets and relaxed style pants. There are many complex, sharp slits on the arms to create tension. The denim pants are shredded to contrast the clear forms. Bottoms include many interesting sweatpants with contrasting straps. The collection includes chunky knitwear, shirts and oversized coat.
There are some asymmetries and prints like camo, hearts, Asian writing and plenty of stripes. The stripes are used to create different variants of color blocking. The colors used are black, gray, white and navy teamed with vivid shades of blue, lime, orange and red. Most of the silhouettes ate two toned. accessories include chunky boots and high sneakers.
