SELECTISM | SMITH-WYKES AUTUMN WINTER 2015


VIEW ARTICLE

"SMITH-WYKES take inspiration for their Fall/Winter 2015 collection from the 'promise of the dawn of the computer age,' displayed in cinematic form through 1976 film 'The Man Who Fell to Earth' by Nicolas Roeg. Symbols of the early days of the computer revolution such as punch cards, computer screens, switches and buttons lead the collection’s prints. The colorways are kept simple with black and white dominating the garments, while royal blues, warm browns and tans provide balance. Shirting is taken care of with the season’s prints on a heavy cotton construction, solid options also on hand. Scottish wool is present in the duster coats and duffles, while double face bonded thermal nylon and cotton canvas are used to create the layering ‘binary’ jackets."
