The two films have inspired Plokhov to create a collection that channels the Sunset Strip and South Beach in the 1980s, and as a result, delivers an array of tailored pieces in both traditional and more daring alternatives. Its Glam Mock-meets-American Gangster aesthetic is interpreted in looks including a cream peak-lapelled suit featuring pinstripes and a luxurious taffeta belt, whereas pieces such as front-zipper trousers, second-skin high-shine leather pants and giraffe-print garments look to ’80s Glam Rock frontmen for inspiration.
NOMENKLATURA STUDIO also delivers a number of looks in contemporary colors such as “High Visibility Lime” and “Yves Klein Blue” — the latter coined by the late Nouveau réalisme artist of the same name — reworking classic looks in extravagant fabrics and cuts. NOMENKLATURA STUDIO’s SS20 is reference-packed and continues to deliver standout pieces such as lime green and metallic purple Cuban heels, snake-printed “Oil Slick” nylon trench coats and wide-legged suit pants in unconventional hues.
Take a look at the full lookbook in the gallery above and head to the NOMENKLATURA STUDIO website to shop the pieces when they drop in the coming weeks.
