With the sneaker sandals from Fall/Winter 2018 in tow, SANKUANZ returns to Paris Fashion Week with more utilitarian influence. This season sees the Chinese label drawing inspiration from the co-mingling social “uniforms” seen on the streets of Mexico, blending day-to-day functionality with modern flair.

Modified suiting kicked off the runway, which juxtaposed slouchy cuts with elevated detailing — like silver collar tips and belts — to create a high-low motif that informed the rest of the range. Leather workshirts underlined the contrast even further, with cowboy boot-inspired footwear offered removable spurs and came in bold white and pastel green colorways. Meanwhile, blue collar staples were torn apart and pieced back together with jarring effect; jeans featured raw, chaps-like seams down the leg and doubled-up waists, while trucker jackets were cropped short and executed in baby blue, subverting the original, traditionally masculine design. Vests were informed by body armor, which added an air of straightlaced pragmatism to several sporty looks — the latter of which incorporated several bold blue activewear shirts and trousers created in collaboration with PUMA. This new collaboration extended to new chunky running sneakers, some of which were strapped up in the headline-grabbing sneaker sandals.

Elsewhere during Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019, Kenzo, Y-3 and Wooyoungmi debuted new collections.
