For the inaugural OAMC show, an exploration of night codes that inform menswear. Tactical SWAT detailing is re-appropriated and re-fabricated. Armor, rapping, dimensional pocketing, modular accessories, identification badges. Formal codes, presented in fabrics and motifs, re-shaped and re-propositioned. Hand-itched reversed-construction tailoring, foulard carré prints on silk robes and shirts, external basting and pleating, gobelin woven jacquard as overcoats and accessories.

The contra between formal dress and utility re-imagined in a modern sense, presented along with shapes and pieces that are important now.
