Death to Tennis | New York Fashion Week: Men’s
For Death to Tennis’ S/S 2018 collection, designers William Watson and Vincent Oshin drew inspiration from New York-based artist Keith Mackie’s Mystical Peacock, providing a striking and original collection.
Initially hand-drawn on paper then rendered in Photoshop, peacock feathers in various colors were set against a white backdrop. This print was used throughout pieces in the collection, ranging from scarves, jackets, shorts, t-shirts, and trousers.
The hair styling was superb, and we especially loved the use of some very well-chosen, intriguing models, who brought out the quirky appeal of this excellent collection.
