Photographer Karl Slater heads backstage @ Alex Mullins @ London Fashion Week Men’s Autumn/Winter 2018 to capture the energy and looks exclusively for FGUK Magazine.
This season Mullins explores the relationship between the right and left functions of your brain. Logical, systematic, mechanical, smart clothing – balances with – imaginative, chaotic and spontaneous.
The right side focuses on creativity and fragmented thought, this is showcased through intensely colourful localized applications of smashed graphics. Versus the left side which focuses on analytic thoughts, which are mirrored through Mullins’ tailored looks in a muted palette.
The collection pays tribute to the futuristic ideals of his early 90s inspirations of SS18. and continues to revisit his on-going interest of encompassing a timeless wardrobe with a contemporary take. Mullins photographed smashed ceramic plates featuring previous seasons muses, digitally printing them onto silk and cotton poplin, creating a surreal flashback of self-reference.
Mullins clad his models in multi coloured spiral tie dye roll necks paired with tailored pieces, cream and camel longline puffer coats and white shirts with modular cut out detailing feature across the collection. Fabrics include charcoal grey and dirty beige corduroy, acid yellow and rainbow tie dye velvet along with two-tone belted stripe denims and grey shearling.
These carefully considered hues set a fresh autumnal spirit across the collection and are teamed alongside minimal classics with a Mullins twist.
