Matthew Adams Dolan presented his Fall Winter 2018/19 collection during the New York Fashion Week. Focused on a on a maturity and a function, the collection features plaid suiting in bright colors, wide-leg jeans, voluminous jackets and coats, as well as the workwear shirts and robust shoes.
For Autumn/Winter 2018, Dolan’s fascination with the shifting paradigms of Americana endured. Sportswear the starting point, the collection is a cohesive and precise convergence of ideas that have sat within in Dolan’s psyche over the last six months. 80s Lo-Life culture, bold 90s activewear ads paired with Jackie Kennedy’s reminiscing of her late husband all help reinforce the lasting impression of timeless style – that an idea or image has the ability to linger in the memory for a lifetime. While Spring/Summer 2018 was an exploration of youthfulness, Autumn/Winter creatively explores identity post-collegiate and pre-adulthood, and with it, the collection takes on a maturity and a function. Plaid suiting punches in shocking pink and bright yellow; french cuff shirts in blue and powder pink are centerpieces and Dolan’s signature jeans comes both in a straight and wider leg. Volume is toyed with on the sleeves of denim jackets and in the shape of gray wool overcoats. On the feet, robust walking shoes are a solution for day and satin heels the choice for night. Traditional American workwear shirts are updated with pleats that fall from the hips and blazers in muted chalk stripe offer a purposeful and attainable elegance, without ever leaving its connection to streetwear – creating a holistic vision of casual and utilitarian American dressing. – from Matthew Adams Dolan
