Bulgarian designer Kiko Kostadinov took to the runway of London Fashion Week Men’s with a compact but robust collection for 2017 fall/winter. The recent Central Saint Martins graduate is known for reinventing workwear blueprints with a raw, deconstructionist style. This season’s collection continues Kiko’s “anti-decorative” approach to design with simplified and enlarged silhouettes carrying a strong utilitarian vein. Various shades of steel blue and gunmetal grey dominated the color palette, while the occasional hit of primary red balanced out the heavily monochromatic looks. Modern necklines in the form of crew necks, turtle necks, mock necks and asymmetric collars round out the oversized fits, whereas tonal hip packs hammer home the utilitarian aesthetic.
