REVENGE

For Fall/Winter 2016, New York City menswear designer Kenneth Ning dubbed his youthful collection “Revenge”. Shown during New York Fashion Week for men, the collection also included three women’s looks shown on female models. Standout pieces for men included oversized vests and jackets with exaggerated collars, zippers and grommets. The designer also showed a fabulous “revenge” print black and white suit, as well as a silk burgundy hooded zip-top, shown on model Erik van Gils. However, in our eyes, the showstoppers were the very graphic houndstooth overcoats, which were just out of this world. Accessories played a key role in this rebellious look, with male models sporting long dangling earrings and Dr. Martens shoes. The talented Ning stayed true to his vision of dressing the next generation, with his fresh, young and edgy outlook on clothing. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://www.kennethning.com

KENNETH NING S/S 2016

SUBVERSIVE YOUTH CULTURE

“For Spring 2016, we continued to explore the balance between subversive youth culture and clean tailoring. Inspired by faraway desert lands, we found ourselves drawn to the vibrant energy and chaos of the bustling medina.

We immersed ourselves in the unfamiliar:  colorful spices set the palette, while patterned tapestries influenced the use of unexpected fabrics such as floral jacquards and lace. Graphic elements were extracted from traditional motifs. Ornate mandalas were reimagined as statement prints and applied using innovative techniques to disrupt classic suiting fabrics such as the pinstripe.

Proportions were pushed to create updated silhouettes with fitted shoulders and full sweeps. The end result is a bold statement of cultural art reinterpreted for modern sportswear and executed with expert tailoring, for the sartorial enthusiast with a youthful spirit.”
