Amalgamating Contemporary & Traditional Silhouettes at NYFW

New York Fashion Week has shown to be extremely exciting while work being culturally progressive. Designers like Shayne Oliver breathes new life into Helmut Lang, as well as Raf Simons who continues to push Calvin Klein in a new direction, show us the direction fashion is moving towards. The street style has similarly reflected the same values, and Chris Lavish has continued the theme of revamping classics with an outfit captured on Day 1 of NYFW while attending the Adam Selman show.

This bold pairing of the AKINGSNY
Daniels Denim Jacket and the camouflage kilt
is a prime example of taking more classic,
traditional silhouettes and reimagining them
with luxury detailing. The AKINGSNY Daniels
Denim Jacket is constructed with 18 Oz
Japanese selvedge denim, and features Riri M6
zipper pen pockets along the bottom hem as
well as the chest pocket. The seams along the
chest and arms also divides the garment up
and adds non-traditional seams to a classic
piece. To compliment the jacket, a camouflage
skirt, with grommets positioned throughout the
front that transforms this kilt with so much, into
an abstract reinterpretation. Together these
bold statement pieces show us why Chris
is so well known for his intuitive and unique style.
