JEAN PHILLIP SPRING/SUMMER 2016 RUNWAY SHOW COPENHAGEN FASHION WEEK
JEAN PHILLIP SPRING/SUMMER 2016 RUNWAY SHOW COPENHAGEN FASHION WEEK //
Presenting the Jean Phillip SS16 collection showcased during Copenhagen Fashion Week, having not attended fashion school, Jean Phillip is one of those designers who's on a constant journey of growth and gets better with each collection and season. His namesake label carries a monochrome but layered aesthetic with a strong identity of Nordic melancholia.
For Spring/Summer 2016 the collection was made up of contrasting panels featuring digital prints, soft cashmeres, wool blends and quality Japanese cottons. The signature monochromatic palette was still evident sitting alongside the addition of some earthy tones connecting the “Hefner meets the Army” theme. The use of Olive green worked well throughout the collection highlighting key pieces and the connection to utilitarian details. The addition of pinstriped blazers and pants in tone on tone details downplayed the pinstripe whilst adding a more formal offering. Sheer shirting, slim fit pants and tailored jackets were contrasted with dropped crotch shorts, raw hems and long jackets. Jean Phillip continually excels with his ability to mix the elements of structured tailoring and voluminous forms to create that subtle avant-garde silhouette that you have come to expect from this directional designer.
