Designers Saif Bakir and Emma Hedlund presented CMMN SWDN‘s Spring Summer 2019 It’s a Jumble Out There menswear collection on Tuesday June 19th, during the first day of the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. The collection explores fast fashion and an enormous mountain of waste that comes with overconsumption.
“Staples from previous collections are given a new lease of life – denim has been updated with laser etched prints of sales advertisements encouraging us to overconsume and knitwear has been dissected and reassembled by hand as applique on mesh.
The technical Moto jacket takes a new guise as a cropped version in muted colours is reimagined on printed mesh. Tailored trousers are fused with leather detailing and open sleeves complete each look with a sense of ease and movement.
CMMN SWDN’s signature use of unexpected pairings continues through conventional business stripes printed on silk organza and sheer mesh set against hardwearing denim and leather.“
