Kandinsky, football and fluor: what do these things have in common? Nothing – but that didn’t restrain fast fashion retailer TopMan from having them sent down a runway, in ubiquitous arty garments that were modeled by all the top coverboys. Victor Nylander’s lips be praised, as they never fail to distract from the drecktitude of a said collection!
“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.
