The founder and designer of Dyne used his skills working with technical fabrics that he applied to interesting sports-inspired silhouettes as well as complementary products such as eyewear, socks and bags.
In his spring presentation in New York earlier this week, Bevans offered a tight collection of T-shirts, anoraks, track pants and sweats all updated through the use of creative fabrics.
Case in point was a technical T-shirt created through a sublimation technique with a graphic design that Bevans said was “inspired by geometry and motion” and a pattern informed by tropical birds. A hooded anorak and lightweight pants with a drawstring waist sported the same pattern.
Bevans also showcased a fabric innovation he discovered in Taiwan that used recycled paper for short-sleeve shirts.
The spring collection, called “Colour Theory,” included baby French terry sweatshirts and a raincoat in a reflective camouflage pattern.
Bevans revealed he’s now working with Fila on a special capsule using wool — the designer is a Woolmark Award winner — and has also jumped into the eyewear market. His line of glasses had acetate or metal frames, some with snap-on lenses. The glasses will retail for $220 to $325 and will ship in a fanny pack, Bevans said.
The designer also unveiled his sock collection produced by Strideline, and sent visitors home with a splashy red, white and blue pair.
