Model casting was varied at Liam Hodges, who focused on developing his man this season and aimed his collection at a various range of people as opposed to a specific type.
Working with American label Dickies, Hodges pushed boundaries for spring, taking the traditional men’s workwear uniform and incorporating playful finishes and experimental silhouettes. He juxtaposed military hues using two-tone combinations of beige and white or olive and military green on shirts and trousers.
Embellishments such as loose white ties or patches inspired by quality control stamps were affixed on jackets, sweatshirts and shorts. Consider a military green bomber jacket with an enlarged “I’m OK” patch across the back, worn with sweat shorts in black and military green.
Workwear influences were also translated in a deconstructive and raw manner in the form of a cotton sweatshirt with visible seams and patches with a slogan such as “Refining Content, Calibration in Process.”
He experimented with shapes in an asymmetrical silhouette, as seen on a drape sweatshirt with elongated sleeves paired with sweat shorts in green or blue.
