Craig Green is one of the U.K.’s greatest fashion designers, known for his conceptual and challenging forms on the runway that trickle down to contemporary ready-to-wear that breaks down conventions and menswear tropes in fashion. This approach couldn’t ring more true for the designer’s lastest Dover Street Market London-exclusive drop, which presents a new pile knit hoodie in three eyecatching colorways.
Available in “Lime/Black,” “Orange/Black” or “Red/Black,” the avant-garde piece is crafted entirely from wool and features a 100% cotton interior lining. A wool-tufted hood sits at the top, while a concaved, ribbed, sinched body cascades from the hood like a cocoon.
Optional arm holes are bulbous and natural in their shape, while an open side panel allows for the wearer to interpret the piece on their body as they wish, adding to its conceptual nature. The curvaceous loop adds to the freedom of this wearable piece of art, while a tie-fastening on the side continues the garment’s ability to shapeshift.
