Motivated by Lee Gordon’s black-and-white photos of Carnival in Jacmel, Haiti, during the Nineties, Tourne de Transmission’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection offers a return to form and foreign culture for creative director Graeme Gaughan.

Showing up to London Fashion Week Men’s with a predominantly black collection of tailored coats and asymmetrical cuts and pockets, he translated Gordon’s images of men smeared in paint and mud into a trans-seasonal line-up of skewed hems, relaxed forms and comfortable colour bursts, like the pink checked parka toward the end of the show.

While the cultural influences were hidden in small add-ons, notably the crescent-shaped accessories and painted faces, the strongest looks appeared on the catwalk as countless outerwear options and sheer lace shirts, which we think added a bit more depth to this collection’s unmistakable gender-fluidity.
