Levi Palmer and Matthew Harding looked once again to the work of antidigital artist Nathan Peter for this collection, which also explored themes of the accelerationist and situationist movements. “In this age of Instagram and social media, anonymity is the new luxury,” explained Harding at the brand’s presentation, pointing out turtleneck knits pulled up to obscure the models’ faces.
The duo is known for their shirts and there seems to be no end to the ways in which they can re-imagine them. There were plenty of interesting ideas here: little halter shirts with ruffles that ran along the yoke and under the exposed arms, and the boxy black leather shirt that came with tan suede culottes.
Also nice were the oversize cape with a coat collar in camel wool, and the wrap skirts that balanced the complexity of some of the shirts. Stapled-together squares of ponyskin made a nice textural addition in skirts and on shirt cuffs, and hinted at a Wild West mood next to one shirtdress that had a tan suede panel at the bottom.
