In an increasingly digital world, people need to slow down and live in the moment. For Uri Minkoff, that point was driven home during a recent visit to Como, Italy, where he was struck by the different hues of blue, white and pink.
He translated that message in his spring collection, where he sought to slow down time by using dancers moving in slow motion to model the lineup. Their subtle moves allowed the technical elements of the fabric — performance-grade nylon, sport jerseys, stretch cotton twill — to shine.
Minkoff’s love for cycling and triathlons — and the materials used in the sport — were evident in biking zip-up tops and articulated panels on the back of the pants. These details added a late Nineties retro feel and an interesting cool factor.
