Craig Green’s AW13 collection somehow slipped us by when it initially debuted at London Collections: Men earlier this year, but the keen minds at Dezeen have thankfully brought it to our attention – not least because of the interesting choice of headgear Green sent his models down the runway wearing. Splintered wood aside, the collection itself is quite brilliant.
Largely monochromatic outfits see an emphasis on patchwork and mix ‘n’ match that exists independant of the collection’s overall uniformity. Based around ideas of light, shadow, reflection and silhouette, texture and tonal variation within the range is created with horizontal stripes and shiny, crinkled materials. Green’s tailoring succeeds in creating a silhouette that is both baggy – almost draped – and fitted, ensuring that there is a level of wearability even through the avant-garde instinct that must’ve flourished during his time working with Henrik Vibskov. We’re looking forward to seeing more.
