PFW Spring/Summer 2017 – Afterhomework [Paris]

Unexpected, raw, and innovative, AFTERHOMEWORK [PARIS] breaks down the walls of fashion and re-creates it in a way that only the unfettered minds of the youth culture can.

Designer Pierre Kaczmarek, still a teenager, created a collection for Spring/Summer 2017 that was an expression of life experiences of the youth culture in Paris now with “references to what we have liked, what has inspired or moved us”. Per show notes, “It is a more personal collection…like an ode to the youth, our lives and our nowadays values”. It was a collection without gender, and every look, every detail had a meaning and was a reference to real life experiences.

Inspired by Yves Klein and his blue, AFTERHOMEWORK [PARIS] incorporated color for this season which was a departure from the previous season’s exclusive use of black and white. Traditional pieces were deconstructed and re-worked, and unconventional fabrics were sourced to make a collection that forced you to see fashion from a new and fresh perspective.
