Petrol by Josh Reim’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection entitled Esoterism, is a barebones approach at capturing the spirit of the increasingly knowledgeable youth. It bares a look at revivalist culture through a Bauhaus aesthetic lens. The collection is a witty challenge posed at classic ideals of beauty. Each piece holds a unique quality while maintaining an organic balance between Functionality and playfulness. A culmination of “odd boy” looks from various eras, this collection puts a revitalized spin on many “fashion faux-pas” in a refined manner.
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.
