In London, Craig Green sent an impressive convergence of conceptual and wearable design down the runway for Fall/Winter 2013. Fresh out of Saint Martins, the young designer earned a spot as part of Topshop’s MAN initiative and his showing was easily the most eye-catching of the bunch. Green’s clothes were inspired by “shadows and reflections” and showcased tonal, patchwork cotton knits, calico, felt, and suede fabrics in hand-painted and crinkled finishes. Silhouettes were easy and layered, with cut-off, rolled-up hems on trousers and oversized fits on tops. The designer’s penchant for sculpture, meanwhile, was on full display, marked by the use of wood shards as structured headpieces. With this dramatic, conceptual show under his belt and showman’s flair, Craig Green should be a talent to watch in seasons to come.
