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 Fall/Winter 2017, Riccardo Tisci used Western American references out of his childhood memories to build a positive Givenchy collection made of signature House codes such as horizontal stripes, stars, embroidered check patterns and graphic colorful prints.
