Laurent Hermann Progin is a 26 years old Fashion Designer from Switzerland. He graduated this year from Institute for Fashion Design doing fashion in Basel and is now working as freelance designer for some labels.
His graduate collection titled “Uphill Arosa“, is based on the culture and image of small Swiss villages in the Alps, known for their posh and decadent ski culture. Laurent created a collection with his idea of luxury and male fashion.
“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
For the Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and artistic directors of Maison Kitsuné, drew their inspiration from American pop culture and the aesthetic and creative energie of New York born, Paris based, artist William Klein.
