Take a look at Raun LaRose FW17 backstage captured by the lens of Xiaoyang Jin during New York Fashion Week Men’s, in exclusive for Fucking Young!

New York-based menswear designer, Raun LaRose, opened his highly anticipated Fall/Winter 2017 NYFWM debut collection to a thrilled crowd on Wednesday. “To Whom It May Concern” was presented at Cadillac House in the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan through the CFDA. With what can only be described as an intentional juxtaposition of art and mainstream society, LaRose designed a collection that was “designed for the alternative,” emphasizing the ‘new look’ sensibilities of today’s new media era. With an affinity for all things art, LaRose took inspiration from the likes of Erwin Wurm as well as 90’s high-hop and skate cultures. Using his inspirations to create elevated designs, La Rose played with PVC, speckled tweed and metallic silk lame to bring his vision into fruition.
