LCM: Craig Green SS15
June 27, 2014
For Spring Summer 2015, we saw one of our favourite designers of the last couple of years Craig Green take to his first individual show. After being part of the MAN showcase in previous seasons.
For his first solo show, he certainly didn’t disappoint. In my opinion Green is one of the best menswear designers out there, he has a concise aesthetic that is continually defined and the garments he produces are brilliantly created. It helps that he seems to loosely follow a dark style aesthetic too. Whilst obviously not purposely part of that movement, I can’t help but feel each and every collection has something to offer us at Stylenoir.
There was a truly honest and poinent moment to the collection also. Tears were shed by some attendees as the models walked the runway as thoughts turned to professor Louise Wilson who passed away before the collection had been finished. Louise Wilson was a large supporter for Craig Green and someone who had played a hand in the creation of the SS15 collection.
Green stated about the SS15 collection
“I feel like every season is a reaction to the one before, so this season we wanted it to be freer and we wanted it to feel beautiful, in a way. For the fabric to have a beauty to it with the movement and the flags and everything, was so important.”
It was, another fantastic collection from Green. My favourite statement had to be the wooden framed ‘flags’ which either draped or became flags depending on the speed of the models, creating a flowing movement to the collection, whilst the cutout jersey tops created a certain utopian freedom about the collection, as if morphed into a future plain.
