Bristol Studio NYFW FW19
Represented by Sandrine Charles Consulting.
SS–19 explores one of the key questions that Bristol Studio is founded upon: can a sport (or sports) be considered a form of art?
To take the question even further, where do the lines between sport and art blur? This collection consists of sportswear staples – sweats, track suits, and basketball shorts – reimagined.

Heavyweight mesh and lightweight mesh are juxtaposed on shorts; sweats are deconstructed (and reversible, a nod to a classic practice jerseys); track suits are elevated through adept tailoring (calling to mind a classic suit).
Bristol Studio x adidas Originals enlist The Shoe Surgeon to design 3 never-before-seen Crazy BYWs (Boost You Wear).
Taking a sculptural approach to sneaker design, Bristol Studio chose to emphasize the 3-D nature of footwear, giving the Quarter on each shoe a three-dimensional texture.
“I designed SS–19 with the intention of blurring the lines between sport + art. I always felt my most creative, as a kid, on the basketball court. When designing, I’m always chasing that creative feeling, trying to rediscover and recapture it.” Luke Tadashi, Bristol Studio
