OAMC Looks to the Home for Fall/Winter 2018

Going backstage at one of the sleeper picks of PFW.

By //Fashion 

OAMC hosted a unique show during Paris Fashion Week, turning the grand Palais Des Beaux-Arts venue into something that resembled a family-home-turned-winding-maze. The influence for the collection was an eclectic mix of the artworks of Joseph Beuys alongside homes of the World War II period. This was showcased in the homely and slightly tacky wallpaper running throughout the show, while each artwork dotted around the venue was a collaboration with a set of young artists.

The show kept things clean while still providing enough new additions to keep everyone interested. In practice this meant a focus on outerwear, creating chore coats, shearling jackets and overcoats in both plain and color-blocked versions. Elsewhere, there was also Prince of Wales check suiting, oversized statement scarves as well as some heavily-patterned pieces that recalled the theme of the show.

There was intrigue around this show as it marked the first time that Luke Meier had been working at both Jil Sander and OAMC simultaneously. However, it looks like he’s brought some of the Sander expertise in fabrication into OAMC, with the brand all the better for it.

To see some of these fabrications up close, take a look at the gallery above. Once you’ve finished looking through the backstage imagery, you can view every runway look from the show.
