Death to Tennis | NYFW Men’s

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.

The designers played on the multitude of “eyes” which were found on the tail-feathers and interpreted by the designers as an abstract reference to modern society’s obsession with vanity, with a nod to the 1950s aesthetic.

With the rise of Snapchat, Facebook Live, and Instagram Live, it was only natural that models at the show were holding their iPhones to livestream the presentation.
