Mood board: Craig Green sent in the special forces for an A/W 2016 tale of restriction and release. Gone were the sporty Judo references and in their place Green grounded paratroopers in protective hazmat suits followed by swaddled thobe-style tunics in dusty hues of sand, putty and khaki.
Finishing touches: Many of Green’s looks were finished with coordinating hoods that were secured by drawstrings and all matter of extra-curricular tabs – some of which appeared as though borrowed from a straight jacket – to conceal and/or shield the face.
Best in show: Green’s series of unfurled leather and PVC looks, held together by metal grommets and thick laces, which pertained a desert punk feel, and explored the same notion of reveal and conceal as his somewhat unhinged, armour-like silken numbers that were dominated by excessive button hole loops.
