PERRY ELLIS ONPOINT
FALL WINTER COLLECTION 2018
The Hippodrome NYC, once the site of a circus and other public gatherings becomes the backdrop for the Perry Ellis fall winter 2018 presentation. The rich, festive history of our location and the depiction of a “Circus Sideshow” by George Seurat began a deep fascination with a modern take on pointillism. From “Sunday in the Park With George”, which is based on a fictionalized version of Seurat, we derive a rich color palette and cross over into the exploration of versatility of sportswear and fabric usage.
We loosen up the styling of the collection to reflect go-forward daily needs of the Perry Ellis man. We are prepared to go at the day in a variety of ways, from printed anoraks, puffers and vests that layer over total stretch trousers and other functional pieces.
Color blocks and hand painted landscapes mix with complicated jacquards providing depth to non-solid weaves. The use of color serves to provide the connection between work and play.
Graphic statements nod to the seasonal direction and are in every case ONPOINT. The canvas is prepared and the foundation has been laid for a season based on design, order, harmony, balance and composition .
