John Elliott Co. introduces militaristic aesthetics for Spring/Summer 2016
Establishing his eponymous label as a pioneering minimalistic and basics brand, John Elliott has shown us exactly why he is now ready to swim with the sharks, following the unveiling of his Spring/Summer 2016 collection in New York City. Creative director John Elliott was bordering on giddy prior to the showcasing of his collection, explaining that he was ultimately aiming for a “Vietnamese colour palette that was faded, cold and pale with military references.”
These references were made clear throughout the show, with models marching down the runway wearing modernised hooded anoraks, redesigned bomber jackets, in fabrics including suede and canvas, as well as other pieces that featured cargo pockets. This militaristic approach was complimented with monotonous palettes of grey, black, blue and green. Layering was still on the agenda for the Spring/Summer 2016 show, with longline tops, short-sleeve sweatshirts and casual shorts paired with leggings all making appearances along the runway.
The entire collection is not due to drop until early 2016; however, in the meantime, you can view the entire collection here, and let us know what you think in the comment box below. The current collection is also available to purchase now on its online website.
