This season Kenneth Ning aimed for military ruggedness and a post-apocalyptic feel for his spring collection. Inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket,” the lineup was filled with ghillie sniper suits, camo jacquard suits and mismatched paneled shirts that looked like they’d been through the war.
“‘Full Metal Jacket’ is such a serious movie,” said Ning, “but at the same time, it’s quirky and I wanted to convey the fun tones in it.”
Highlights included a navy wool crepe cargo vest paired with a blazer and a black anorak made of ripstop fabric. Shirts were doubled and layered as part of a deconstruction technique.
