Alex Mullins shows a self referential collection for SS18

Looking in.

[A]lex Mullins has been in a reflective mood. And given what our society has been reduced to since the last round of menswear shows, it’s little wonder. We’re right there with him. But as well as looking outside of and around himself this season, the designer has been looking inward, creating perhaps his most self referential collection to date.

Using past collections as inspiration Mullins photographed key pieces before digitally printing them onto silk, canvas and cotton, literally building upon what he has done before and creating a collection for this season that mulls over time and self. Paring this influence with that of 90s perfume advertisements, it was surreal, personal and a reminder of what makes Mullins stand out from his peers.

Cuts and silhouettes were what we’ve come to expect from the designer intent on giving wardrobe staples a modern twist and as always print was important; aside from the images of previous collections there were floral patterns and daisies intertwined across shirts, coats and travel bags, paired with yellow cashmere jumpers and baskets of flowers.
