Ben Taverniti channeled the upbeat athletic fashion vibe of the summer issues of Nineties fashion magazines, working total-look outfits in pop monochromatic colors.
The designer used membrane fabrics and drawstrings to add volume, mixing silks, leathers and French terry.
Mirroring the men’s spring 2019 collection were the fusions of streetwear classics on outerwear, including a graphic hybrid black denim jacket spliced with a pale gray anorak, and performance popovers. He also added some dresses, though, catering to demand from retailers, including a pretty blue pleated silk polyester bustier style.
In the mix were cool hybrid knitted hoodies with contrast mesh uppers; distressed white denim with gold piping; voluminous colored cargo pants tricked with drawstrings, and body-con athletic ruched minidresses and bodysuits with racer necklines.
Some of the daring palette mixes like hot pink and red recalled Eighties Yves Saint Laurent with a fun couture, disco vibe infusing some of the looks including the red-and-white striped pussy bow blouse paired with high-waisted bleached denim with rips and scrunchy colored nylon boots.
