The clothes adaptation by Todd Lynn Spring-Summer 2016
For Spring/Summer 2016, Lynn’s tribe dress in white, a colour which further amplifies his skill as a tailor: the hue offers nowhere to hide.
“There’s a lot of tying-on, which I love,” Lynn explains of the collection. “I like the idea of a found garment, it reminds me of being a kid when I’d find clothes and adapt them. You make your own vision in how it’s worn.”
There is no sacrifice in the craft or construction, of course. This is about a further means of expression – gleaming eyelets are stamped across garments, allowing the wearer to adjust pieces to their whim.
Silver fabrics, a mesh and a jacquard used on its reverse side almost strobe through movement. Tailored jackets are patchworked in leather or have kimono sleeves. The biker jacket, complete with its grand prix paneling, is oversized and adapted with straps. Biker boots in python and leather by Christian Louboutin are worn with every look.
