Henri Alexandre focused on the details for his fall collection, which adhered to the label’s aesthetic: a bit punk, quite “rich depressed kid” — in keeping with the label’s name — and rather wearable.
“If it doesn’t look good on, it’s wrong, it’s a failure,” said Alexandre, lifting a piece he made to satisfy a personal longing — a red suit jacket. A pair of trousers were tailored just so, narrower at the bottom to make a pair of pointy-toed shoes look good.
There weren’t any jeans this season “because I’m over jeans,” he explained. The designer instead focused on his current favorite, cargo pants, which he made with a Japanese nylon material. He also added a suspender strap in black seatbelt material, which carried the logo, in a discreet black-on-black. Images included a drawing he made of a boy cutting off a girl’s ear, which was reproduced as embroidery.
