TO MIND - ALEX MULLINS




During the study at Central Saint Martins, the young British menswear designer Alex Mullins was a runner up in the “L´Oreal Professional Young Designer of the Year Award”. After that he completes the MA (Menswear) at the Royal College of Art, graduating in 2012.
Prizes didn´t stop here. While he was awarded a full scholarship with Kopenhagen Fur at the RCA, was also nominated for the Dazed and Confused/Casio G-Shock “Spirit of Toughness” award.
Before setting up his brand in spring 2013, Alex worked with few renowned and from the design-aesthetic point, different designers, such as Alexander McQueen, Jeremy Scott, Diane von Furstenberg, Dirk Bikkembergs and Kanye West.

Mullins showed us his passion for denim (and the word “denim” is used quite a lot from now on) at his third collection by playing with proportions and “tousling” the common work-wear into something unconventional. Presented at the BFC Presentation Space, his F/W 2015/2016 consist of raw-seems turned outside in the pleating part of denim pants, elongated denim shirt-inspired jackets and the 70´s vibe with velvet and corduroy suits, composed by trapeze-shaped, ankle length, high-waist pants, paired with matching elongated, one button blazer or cropped, denim-inspired jackets.  Turning primitive ideas on their head would say he.
