Alyx Studio has only been around since Fall 2015. The label gained national and international recognition after founder and designer Matthew Williams was a finalist for the 2016 LVMH prize. In case his name doesn’t ring a bell, he’s the guy associated to shaping the visual identities of Lady Gaga and Kanye West, amongst others. If you’re not into celebrities we can also add that the collections are sold at Colette, The Broken Arm and Dover Street Market, amongst others. That should say enough.
First Menswear Collection
We’ve been fans of Alyx Studio since the beginning, here at ENFNTS TERRIBLES. Their ready to wear spring/summer 2017 collection was to die for. And now, the brand is expanding its empire into menswear!
It’s super refeshing to see brands expanding their collections lately. It aren’t just the womenswear lines that are exiting these days. Look at brands like GCDS and Paloma Spain, who are both crossing the lines of old-fashioned gender ideas. Things and garments that would be described as ‘typically feminine’ 10 years ago are now becoming part of the menswear collections. And we’re all in for it! Alyx Studio is a brand that is seamlessly including those things in a menswear collection.
“I believe that there are too many clothes on this earth,” says Matthew Williams. “If I am going to take the responsibility of making clothing, I need to make something that deserves to exist.” And it surely deserves to be out there, if you ask us.
The menswear line will be available in stores like Dover Street Market New York, Ssense, Opening Ceremony, and Totokaelo (among others) next week.
