Craig Green – SS18
Craig Green conjured the divine and induced sartorial-spiritual epiphanies at LFWM.
Craig Green collided conceptual, idiosyncratic menswear with psychedelic-cum-nomadic thingamajigs for SS18. The artisanal looks took the form of freaky sculptural setups, meticulously cut from quilted cloths with custom qunpi ropes, wooden corset things and chaotic colorways making for a mega-textural stunner. The ‘impermanence of life’ was a theme for the Aliens Covenant wardrobe costumier, as well as indigenous and tribal themes (derived, perhaps, from his experience in Machu Picchu, a hub for new age hippies who love to experiment with ayahuasca and other mind-warping psychotropes). Craig made dark denim trousers, shamanistic robes/hoodies and cryptic tops/tunics/one-offs with circular cut-outs and wooden frames that symbolized something surreal, mystical and subconsciously imagined. The show notes referenced things like ‘life’s rhythm and cycles’ and even hinted at a kind of sartorial-spiritual Samsara that made for a rather philosophical/sacred spectacle. Anyway, we love Craig’s insanely cool conceptualism and flipped out fashion fantasies. It was avant-garde, kinda kooky and entheogenic all at once!
