ALEX MULLINS - SPRING/SUMMER 2015
With the next season of LC:M shows just weeks away, it seems apt to recap on some of the strongest shows from the last round of catwalk shows and presentations. The Alex Mullins spring presentation was a real triumph, showcasing a unique imagination.
The 28 piece collection created a vivid scene of 1970s Americana, inspired by society outsiders; imagine a Native American motorcycle gang setting up home in a Malibu trailer park. All of their clothes look live hand me downs from past generations, customised to chronicle a journey. Speaking of the collection, Mullins says “This season I have been fascinated by a primitive ideology towards how to dress, using this fictitious Native American motorcycle gang to explore an instinctive yet historically and culturally informed way of dressing.”
Shown at Victoria House, and as part of the British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN initiative, Mullins’ characters present themselves in masculine, hard wearing fabrics in classic shapes but with his signature play on proportion. Deep indigos, corals and primary reds and yellows are all affected by time and developed so to feel as they are as fast living and carefree as their wearers.
