Matthew Miller show collaboration

London Collections Men is in full swing and this season we had an amazing opportunity to do a show collaboration with London-based designer Matthew Miller.
He has previously referred to the freedom of speech being the last authentic art form and has used this medium in his collections, turning the wearer of his clothes into a walking piece of Socialist Youth art that gains more value and relevance with every mark it picks up, adding user-generated worth with wearing.
I quite like this idea of item becoming more valuable with memories gained along the way. This also applies to leather gloves that form to the shape of the wearers hands with wear, becoming their own and one of a kind.

Matthew Miller´s collection for AW16 is mainly inspired by “Nouveau Riche” and Caravaggio´s painting of “David and Goliath”, with details of oil on canvas draped around the models. His clothes adhere to classical silhouettes, adding modern touch and utilitarian details. Men´s clothes were elegantly mixed with rather masculine-looking women´s ensembles. I personally really loved the whole collection.

Riina O men´s  and women´s gloves added the final touch to the looks.
