British Menswear designer Alex Mullins was educated at Central Saint Martins, and the free spirit of the famous fashion college definitely left a mark on his style. Later, Alex had been improving his skills at the Royal College of Art, where he received an MA in menswear.
His latest SS16 collection continues to narrate stories and cognize an environment through clothing. By evoking memories of summer through bleached cotton, white denim, and abstract acid prints, Mullins' silhouettes capture the vacation spirit and abstract feelings of familiarity.
"Layers of cool, light cotton comfort sun blushed skin, inducing nostalgic memories of crumbling graffiti walls, tourist markets, and pure white sun. Bright light speckles your vision, as the sun goes down spots become functional pockets and crude graphics swirl around the body on relaxed, easy feeling silhouettes,” says Alex in his statement.
Alex Mullins creates a wardrobe of a blank canvas, to which paint and prints, such as hand drawn graffiti and crayon drawings are then applied. The result brings an energetic and dynamic finish for each garment.
