For its 2017 spring/summer collection, Tourne de Transmission looked to New York City-based contemporary artist Chris Dorland to help translate into clothing how shelters in some Third World countries are made from discarded Western billboards. On the runway presentation we see the technical construction that echoes the inspiration — asymmetric hems, cutout sleeves, patchwork patterns and subtle hints of colorful graphics. There’s also ripcord trims printed with the phrase “Choose Your Escape Route,” as to hint at the theme of escapism in confined spaces. The range is very much in the context of elevated street style, and it showcases a lot of the popular silhouettes of today like the elongated tops, bomber jackets and leather biker jacket. Overall, the brand does a fine job evolving the technical aspect of its offerings and it will be exciting to see what they’ll be able to produce for future collections ahead.
