New York City-based designer Pyer Moss showed his Fall/Winter 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week, using the runway to add to an already politically-charged week of fashion. Titled “My Father As I Remember — 1980-1999,” this season’s collection draws inspiration from designer Kerby Jean-Raymond’s relationship with his father and his analysis of a Haitian immigrant’s take on American culture and fashion. Aesthetically, the line reflects Jean-Raymond’s expertise in classic menswear tailoring, seen in the exaggerated outerwear proportions and oversized pants inspired by the ’80s-’90s. Embroidered sweatshirts made of wool, velvet, nylon and washed “Dad” leather infuse American sportswear elements into the exaggerated silhouettes, while hand-painted Reebok Club C sneakers, varsity stripes and custom embroidery graphics round out the message-bearing collection. Pyer Moss’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection is the first installment of Jean-Raymond’s four-part series titled “Stories About My Parents.” Take a look at the photo set above and share your thoughts in the comments below.
