Matthew Williams‘ brand ALYX has officially changed its name to 1017 ALYX 9SM. In addition to the name change, the label has also announced that it will debut its Spring/Summer 2019 collection at Paris Fashion Week on June 24.
“Fashion is not just about making clothes. It is an applied art form. It is a way of seeing and an approach to the world. ALYX must be a representation and record of what we believe in,” said Williams in a press release. The name change draws meaning by including a numerical reference to Williams’ birth date (October 17) and the address abbreviation of ALYX‘s founding studio on St. Mark’s Place in New York City.
