MariusPetrus Fall/Winter 2013 collection entitled “Shattered Grey” continues the signature of the brand, whilst taking a slightly darker turn. Taking inspiration by a world that gets harsher everyday, the collection is about self-preservation and survival.
This reflects in the oversized silhouettes, use of robust fabrics and bold prints that resemble the look of shattered glass, organized into kaleidoscopic monochromatic patterns. The MA-1 bomber jacket is used as a symbol of power and strength, with references to this iconic piece returning throughout the collection.
Cover story captured by Matt Irwin and art directed by Nicola Formichetti with actor and singer Olly Alexander, an openly gay singer who doesn’t use ambiguity in his lyrics to make him pass for straight, in order to entice a legion of screaming girls. FY! also analyse various points of view of what an outsider is through editorials, texts and interviews with among others Ahmed Abdelrahman, Demna Gvasalia and Henrik Silvius.
