Ports 1961 Spring Summer 2017 Mens Collection: Creative Director Milan Vukmirovic Debuts Ports 1961 Spring Summer 2017 Mens Collection During Milan Fashion Week.
Ports 1961 appealed to regal Militarism and moody Romanticism in its Men’s SS17 collection. The collection was dark in its nature and dramatic in its delivery. Creative Director, Milan Vukmirovic designed the collection and styled the models with an effortlessly rebellious aesthetic. He shared his personal motivation for the collection with WWD, “I wanted to give a message of less hate and more love,”
All details led to the nod and notion of militaristic modernity. Ceremonial braids embellished many garments, whilst stripes printed graphically appeared upon others.Embellished tops and structured jackets capsulated the line up. Raw edges and hemlines made the eye dance, adding a beautifully “undone” aesthetic to the calculated, tech-driven garments. Military buttons decorated jackets and rope detailing adorned sleeves. Men’s shorts were equipped with buckled belting. There were a series of minimalistic, loosely fit white shirts that draped the models in a very casual, yet formal style.
A series of graphic tees, both long and short were introduced with the collection. A long sleeved graphic tee sported ceremonial braids printed on the surface. This look was paired back to black and white plaid checked shorts. Other graphics included a camouflaged star adorned print. A long tee with a silhouetted, symbolized eagle featured the observed print as well an eased short. In true millennial fashion, one tee printed the hash tagged word #LOVE boldly across the front.
Paper bag waists shorts and stripes paired together fluidly. Zipped hoodies and oversized, long military jackets walked the runway with a confident swagger. Colors of saturated black, clean white, subdued navy and enamored gold were prominent in the collection with momentary pops of deep cranberry. Gold detailing against black fabric appeared, adding a sense of regality and luxe to casual pieces.
The collection as a whole emanated a crisp modernity and a strong statement with edge. The male models not only showcased a collection of designs but an attitude as an entirety. Ports 1961 Men’s SS17 collection was fluidly and successfully designed for the modern man with a possessed individuality and a nonconforming sense of style.
