Edward Crutchley Autumn/Winter 2018

Edward Crutchley returns to the London Fashion Week Men catwalk for his second season in an exploration of communication, looking to the past and the present for visual cues that transcend language and can still meaningfully convey ideas in our contemporary world. Heritage, tradition and spiritually remain central to Crutchley’s work with this season seeing a fresh perspective on globalism and how this cultural melding has also created space for cultural expression and sharing.

Looking at ‘Journey to The West’; one of the Four Great Works of Chinese literature and it’s modern revival in film, a tale of legendary pilgrimage out of one’s own culture and into the unknown, as popular today as it was in the 16th Century and strongly rooted in folk religion, mythology, philosophy and spiritual insight. Crutchley also references the piecemeal appropriation of Celtic mysticism as a touchstone for wider Western concepts of spirituality contrasted and counter-imposed against Grecian classicism.
