N.HOOLYWOOD‘s Fall/Winter 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week surely pushed the limits of convention by taking inspiration from the style of homeless youth. “I was inspired when I witnessed the ‘gutter punk’ subculture during my travels through America,” commented lead designer Daisuke Obana before the runway show. The resulting aesthetic features an uncalculated style of layering, taking incongruous textiles — such as multiple jackets of different styles, unkempt hemlines, puffers, sweaters as scarves and blankets as shirts — and shaping them into bulky, oversized silhouettes and motley collages of patterns and graphics. The collection also features a footwear collaboration with Vans for a special edition of the classic Checkerboard Slip-On, as well as an appearance from the well-known U-Haul logo. Take a look at the full N.HOOLYWOOD Fall/Winter 2017 collection above and share your thoughts in the comments below.
