British Olympic gymnast Sam Oldham, star of the Palmer/Harding collection film, executed his trademark high bar flips on camera. But not all the footage made the cut. “Our pants are pretty low-slung so every time he landed at 40 miles per hour his trousers fell down,” said Levi Palmer, who designs the line with Matthew Harding. The clothes blended contemporary urban style with vintage collegiate references. There were dress shirts and tuxedo-like pants — their raw edges giving them a perverse appeal. There was also a clever jacket with a front panel of galvanized metallic leather in lieu of buttons or zippers. The ultimate utility fabric, you just scrunch it in place and it stays put.
