Private Policy unveiled their autumn/winter 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week: Men’s.
For the FW 2017 season, Private Policy’s inspiration can be seen throughout the collection with the use of collaging and graphic patterns. A biker jacket and cropped trouser combine bright graphics of other country’s flags to create an impactful centralized moment. Straps, chains and harness details promote the idea of multiple pieces being interconnected and the need for them to work together to function. The mixing of unconventional fabrics like velvet and denim further support the concept of opposites coming together; and the introduction of heavy canvases, quilting, and nylon hint at militarism, which acknowledges the ever growing issue between war and government.
Private Policy’s mission is to break the boundaries embedded in fashion and society. Why not menswear for girls? Why not some couture velvet and silk wool for a street bomber? Why not take some risk with mix-&-matching bright colors? And then, we throw on some beads, show off some fringe and fur. These contrasts naturally built beautiful tensions, which then create a big-bang of visual and tactile sensations.
