Sandrine Philippe, a designer from France presented her collection for the first time at Serbia Fashion Week for SS16. The line was comprised of dark shades of grey and black and inspired by the idea of self protection in the future. Using leather, sharp cuts, dark make-up plus strong music, everything appeared to be an urban jungle–without animals, of course.
Her collection was a reference to the process of metamorphosis: The organic evolving nature of clothes revealed strange materials, such as wild animals skins. Models seemed wild and even wore grey and black paint on their hands and faces, showing the savage, free-spirited wolf-man vibe of her collection.
Maybe, just for a moment, too much black seemed monotonus, but Sandrine Philippe is definitely a woman who pushes the boundaries, breaks down barriers and shows dominance. No wonder she took home the award for the best international designer at SFW!
When we look into her unique world, her dark land, we spot blazers with elongated panels, embroidered pullovers, restitched clothes and so much black.
A man who wants to show his strength, lead and protect should definitely invest in some Sandrine Philippe pieces.
Vincere aut mori!
