To further evolve his namesake label, Spencer Phipps wanted to return home to California. By moving to Los Angeles specifically, the designer’s new Spring/Summer 2023 collection presents a meditation on the significance of home as a place of peaceful creativity.

Establishing roots in the City of Angels, PHIPPS utilizes its new collection to redirect the brand’s future. Past experiences, worldwide travel and expanded wishes all cultivate the new offering, aptly titled “Origin 2.o.” Taking precedence in the collection is the brand’s renewed focus on special occasion dressing from tuxedo jackets to dresses. Tailored pieces as such have been recast in a rugged yet refined sensibility with hand-painted techniques and visceral fabrics in shades of scarlet red and orange lava.

Aside from these pieces that harbor an anti-glamour aesthetic, another key theme in the collection is updated camouflage that appears in classic green and brown alongside a livelier orange option. To bring pieces like overshirts, graphic t-shirts, denim, motorcycle garments and more to life, upcycling and the usage of deadstock fabric appears throughout the offering.  Aiding this agenda is the continuation of PHIPPS’ partnership with Woolrich for a small capsule of American workwear staples like a padded rancher coat and a quilted overshirt.

“After years of running I have come to realize how special of a place California is, and the potential it can hold for myself and PHIPPS as a brand,” said Spencer Phipps. “This collection is also a reflection on my own past experiences. This time around, however, it comes with the adaptations of improvement that only the evolution of time and experience can provide.”

Like previous rollouts, the new offering continues PHIPPS’ cinematic offering with an accompanying film that was shot around Los Angeles – showcasing the spirit of California and the transformative power of coming home.
