Smith-Wykes 2016 Spring/Summer Collection

A collection inspired by the great American landscape and the dirtbag counterculture of Yosemite in the ’70s.


By //Fashion

Drawing inspiration from the great Western American landscape and the dirtbag counterculture of Yosemite in the ’70s, Smith-Wykes presents a look at its beatnik designs for 2016 spring/summer. Away from mainstream civilization, the cut & sew pieces follow the narrative of a group of young nonconformist, who escape to the nature where they ensconce in freedom and all that nature has to offer. Military and re-purposed sports apparel lend themselves as cues, while the color palettes draw from that of stone, ash and clay — rubble of the Western canyon rock formations. Poplin button-down shirts are paired with waxed jackets, while the use of weave cotton twill in crafting loose-fitted pants and tees add bohemian characteristics elsewhere. Devoid of loud prints and graphics, other than embroidered jeweled beetles on the chest of selected tops, the collection in an unassuming repertoire with a focus on practicality and comfort.
