Los Angeles based fashion house Thomas Wylde launches its runway show at iconic Moynihan Station during the New York Fashion Week. New collection for Fall Winter 2016 called ‘90291’ captures the artistic and eclectic energy of Venice, California. The color palette includes Blood (deep and sensual crimson) providing a vivid contrast to a neutral palette of Tar (deep black), Cement (light grey), Cocaine (bright white), and Bone (off white). Designers at Thomas Wylde always use the best materials including buttery, ultra-supple lamb leather, drapery-soft Toscana lambskin shearling, fox fur, pure cashmere, wool/cashmere blend coating, ponté suiting, modal-blend extra soft suiting, peau de soie and house-developed washed and ruched chiffon.
‘90291’ portrays Thomas Wylde’s origin story, which began in a design studio headquartered in the heart of Venice’s legendary subcultures . . . think surfers, skaters, artists, musicians and street life. Gritty and dangerous, romantic and exciting, the SoCal seaside town was–and is–a true incubator for creativity. Still in character, the community remains internationally reputed for its dynamic melting pot of culture and eccentricity.
Thomas Wylde has always been about the juxtaposition and balance of opposites – a study in contrasts. The ‘90291’ collection reasserts the company’s iconic aesthetic conveying luxurious ferocity, sleek opulence, and glamorous sophistication. Moreover, it’s about wearability, effortlessness, irreverence and, most of all, individualism – from Thomas Wylde
