Grace Jones-esque hooded ensembles, gathered mini-skirts a la Madonna circa '85 and a collaboration with SEGA's Sonic The Hedgehog: Fyodor Golan's SS19 showcase revisited abandoned elements from various eras.
Entitled Lost & Found, the designers communicated an active futuristic optimism with a collection that mixed 80s silhouettes with surfer elements. “Sporty survivalism guided us through the understanding of water as the source and a symbol of progression,” according to show notes. “Castaway elements found on beaches, from seashells and pearls to plastic waste, influences fabrications and detailing.” The eco-fashion message was loud and clear this season – in the form of recycled denims, and a runway sculpted to emulate coral covered driftwood, made of flowers and abandoned fishing nets.
Washed up models adorned sequinned scales (applied with sustainable real pearls), bold colour contrasts and collaged pieces inspired by American painter Jamie Adams and dreamy pastel waste sculptures by Thirza Shaap.
Take a look at the collection in our gallery below, shot by Eva-Lili for HUNGER.
