What’s hot this spring? Discover the names to know this season. Meet the designers on the cusp of contemporary fashion: GCDS, J.W.Anderson, Off-White, Enfants Riches Déprimés.
Meet the designers on the cusp of contemporary fashion at Luisa Via Roma.
GCDS // The young Milanese brand has plugged into the streetwear phenomenon sweeping the industry, capitalizing on the momentum created by millennials. The only Made in Italy brand to launch online first, GCDS has earnt a loyal following for its loud prints, logo sweaters, bomber jackets and playful patches.
J.W.Anderson // Jonathan Anderson is no longer the new kid on the block. A favorite amongst the fashion elite, J.W. Anderson continues to challenge accepted conventions of masculinity and femininity, often blurring the lines between the two. The Irish-born designer is a pioneer of less is more and the master of clean, efficient and intelligent menswear.
OFF-WHITE // The music producer and man behind Kanye’s sound and style has transitioned to the role of designer seamlessly, cracking the fashion system in record time. Easily recognizable with its signature stripes and industrial hardware elements (logo emblazoned seatbelt straps, anyone?), Off-White’s edge is in large part due to designer Abloh’s intimate understanding of popular culture and urban pedigree.
Enfants Riches Déprimés // Designer and self-proclaimed ‘Rich Depressed Kid’, Henry Levy has caused quite a stir with ERD. Like any great artist, the relative newcomer looked to his surrounding for inspiration… basically creating an extension of his own wardrobe: distressed denim, perfectly worn t-shirts and oversized sweatshirt punctuated with provocative images and ironic messages.
