As Shadow Project continues to distinct itself from mainline Stone Island, the SS18 collection brings one of the brightest, most colorful collections yet.  The label has taken inspiration from two central ideals for the season “expression through removal” and “opacity and transparency.” Certainly these appear throughout pieces in the line. This appears in the form of repeated print patterns and thin breataable fabrics. These include durable NASLAN as well as LUCID FLOCK, a translucent and ultra lightweight nylon material.  My personal favorite is the purple iridescent parka which is sure to catch looks. Look for the collection available at Stockists including END and Farfetch.

Heliot Emil debuted a great show as part of Copenhagen Fashion Week. While Copenhagen might not be an established fashion capital as the likes of Paris, London or New York, the line has channeled something both familiar and novel with the Fall/Winter 2018 show. The show features both male and female models wearing the monochromatic, minimal items.

Dubbed ‘Intended Consequences,’ designer Julius Juul took cues from the French expression “L’appel du vide” — “the call of the void” — which touches on the attraction of undermining one’s own self. Indeed, the “feeling of intentionally wanting negative impacts,” according to the brand, inspired both the technical fabric choices and simplistic color palette. Fabrics in the collection include a heat sensitive blend that changes color from black to white. The styling is another strong point with strong military and streetwear influences set alongside more subversive tailored looks.

Explore  the collection further with a 360 degree immersive video that was released by the label.

After covering each show respectively, it’s time to take a closer look backstage. The joint theme connecting the two shows from Jun and Takahiro was the idea of Disorder/Order. Contrasting the two collections against each other, UC takes a much more youthful and streetwear oriented approach, while The Soloist show chooses to subvert traditional menswear. Click through to see more images and you can shop current season items from the brands at SSENSE and Idol.

For his FW18 Undercover collection , Jun showed that he really reveres the work of director Stanley Kubrick. He had toyed around with looks inspired by the Shining’s Grady sisters in his last women’s show and for his men’s collection at Pitti he showed many pieces based around Kubrick’s 2001: A Space odyssey. The film centers around a near-future where a rogue AI takes over a manned space mission. The feeling of isolation and dystopia is channeled through various prints reflecting scenes from the movie. It also shows up in other unexpected ways like the HAL 9000 LED fanny packs and raincoats screen-printed with “WARNING.HUMAN ERROR. COMPUTER MALFUNCTION”.  The rest of the collection offers up familiar re-treads on Undercover’s signatures – mixed fabrics, trim wool coats and military parkas. A real showstopper for me personally were the down jackets , with illumatinated facemarks that resembled the spacesuits from Kubrick’s sci-fi classic. Jun has always embraced the future in many of his collections, but looking to Kubrick for inspiration has also added a feeling of nostalgia to the proceedings.

If I could raise a criticism of the collection, it would be that the collection feels almost too predictable. It covers all the bases you expect from UC with the same type of printing techniques used in the past and in a way that feels very trend friendly. Still a good collection but perhaps next to the transcendent showing by his friend Takahiro , it feels a little more ordinary.

Gosha staged his runway presentation in one of Russia’s first ever rave venues. That theme carries through to the whole collection with looks based around the personal style of 90’s Ravers. In addition to the usual streetwear staples that we’ve come to known from the label, the collection also includes  Track jackets and oversized jersey by way of the season’s Adidas collab. The fit this time around is much baggier, with a focus on bright patel colors and even tie-dye pieces.
