Mexican contemporary ready-to-wear brand AYCH shares with Design SCENE its Fall Winter 2018.19 collection lookbook.
Creative Director Antonio Dominguez set up his studio in Mexico City following a decade of working with luxury fashion brands across Europe. Each collection is a chapter of his story, an expression of his continuous development of ideas that embrace vibrancy in a mashed up evolutionary world. CHAPTER TWO is a development from CHAPTER ONE, with the main focus being the aspirations of the designer’s life. Dominguez draws inspiration from interiors and architectural design; think of Luis Barragan, Anish Kapoor and Bofill, think of their sharp cuts and the symmetry which reflects in the silhouettes, cuts and construction of the AYCH garments. The main focus of the brand, which is repeated each season are the statement leather pieces, using ethically sourced leathers that are produced in a family run tannery in Toluca, a small town outside Mexico City. This tannery produces the skins from the very beginning, using a recycling plant for the water and an ethical process for the different colour-ways using only vegetable dyes. The process and the final finish of the skins are very important to Dominguez, which has let him to work very closely with the tannery, producing a variation of pantone colour-ways, different thicknesses of skins adapted to the seasonal demands to concluded with experimental finishes and treatments. – from Aych
