For this season, Alex Mullins captured the feeling of ‘All Holidays Ever’ to create this spring/summer collection. The collection is also inspired by stories and environments.
The set up of the presentation was interesting with colourful foam maps bundled up and placed all around the room, made you feel like you are in the country side, evoking memories of summer. This collection also make you think about holiday, think of your surrounding environment, and showing off Mullins’s trademark in textiles that give off the smell of sandy beaches, market stalls, and adventures.
The garments are simple and cleverly altered by Mullins’ skill. A return to bright colours for the summer – playfully colouring in hem-lines in blue, flecks of blue in the white denim jacket, while a Bunny figure painted in pink and blue, cotton t-shirts and a very simple oversize denim jacket and jeans. White, relaxed cottons featured amongst acid washed denims to permeate balance and difference, but never purity. SS16 is the guy you will meet while camping over summer in the country side as models were dressed in the showstopper green bomber jacket and trouser combination, as well as the oversized kimono open coat with ‘boyfriend‘ pants covered in large sketches of bright orange, yellow, green and pink. The layers of cool, light cottons comfort with sweaty sun blushed skin.
