HOMME BOY Destroys to Create Its Spring/Summer 2018 "LE2.23" Collection
Dominated by heavy distressing and chain detailing.
Continuing its subculture-informed aesthetic, HOMME BOY recently released the lookbook for the final installment of its “LOOSE ENDS” collection series.
The Los Angeles-based label’s signature distressed cult styling remains dominant throughout the Spring/Summer 2018 range titled “LE2.23.” Short for “LOOSE ENDS 2” / 23, designer Kyle Pak notes that South Korean band HYUKOH‘s latest album, 23, served as the visual inspiration for the final “LOOSE ENDS” collection.
Putting together yet another edgy cohesive collection, HOMME BOY showed off its signature mix of high-fashion and contemporary streetwear looks informed by youth and various subcultures. Striking leather rider jackets, shirt jackets constructed from intricately patterned textiles and surprisingly functional vests pair well with the reworked tops, bold bottoms and unique silver accessories. While heavy distressing and hardware detailing in the form of triangle rings, ball chains and more serve to tie the distinct pieces into one cohesive collection.
Set to drop March 4, HOMME BOY’s Spring/Summer 2018 “LE2.23” collection will be available at hommeboy.com and select retailers.
For more contemporary fashion, Arbitrage NYC and Grailed recently announced a special Dolce & Gabbana archive capsule release.
