Inevitable, Craig Green Fall 2016 Menswear collection has become a highlight of the week although still far between of London Collection Men 2016 schedule. The British designer’s favourite to date – Craig Green has continued his fierce commitment to challenging forms. Green is still green behind the ears, but his clothes show a remarkable maturity. Which is to say that he slowly and methodically examines and develops ideas. And his are some of the best emerging in contemporary fashion. He’s truly flourishing.
The Londoner’s true genius lies his ability to parlay his cerebral inspirations into unique yet wearable clothing, often with utilitarian edge. Some will scoff at stuff like Green’s sheets of cotton, attached to poles bound to the forearms of his models and obscuring them entirely, bar a hole punched in the torso. You kind of get why they would – but Green’s proposition this time was about wrapping the body in fabric, playing games of concealing and revealing both the shape of the body, and its actual flesh.
Green also pointed out his signature shapes, square-cut jackets and wide-leg trouser, like a judo suit Think his clothes are restricted to concept – or fashion types who wear it head-to-toe and wind up looking like a wayward karate kid? The latter, those trousers, have already begun sweeping foot-wide hems through a fair few collections. Believe the hype: right now, Green’s the very best of British.
