Alyx Studio has only been around since Fall 2015 but 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.
Spring Summer 2017
Feminine vs masculine, streetwear vs tailoring… there are a lot of interesting contradictions in the Alyx SS17 collection. Also the lookbook captures your imagination. Are the models returning home after a heavy night out? Or what exactly is their plan? Because some of them rather seem to wear an office-inspired look than a party outfit. There’s a little bit of everything with an edgy touch, we like.
For the resort collection Williams collaborated with Italian motorcycle gear company, Spidi. Besides some ultra feminine dresses and an occasional hoodie, it’s a lot about biking. Of course the pieces are created for their female clientele. But they can keep in mind that Spidi is the real deal, specialized in developing armors to keep you alive.
It could be an excuse to finally buy that motorcycle tho…
