Titled ‘’Gethsemane’’ after the garden in Jerusalem where Jesus is said to have prayed and agonized the night before the crucifixion, the collection explored structure and fluidity, asymmetry and volume while playing on the aesthetic of contrasts.

‘’Skin tight leather bodysuits underpin most looks, some with the top pulled down to hang off the hips. Sharp, exaggerated shoulders on tailored coats and cropped bombers mock male conservatism careening off the rails. Heavy recycled cashmere sweaters twist around the body – they can pull up to double or peel down to trail off the body. The same yarns are used to knit roomy blanket – sized hooded robes’’, said the note show.

The offering was realized in monochrome shades, offset by hits of olive so as to emphasize the dramatic shapes.
