Extreme contrasts merged together in the same collection seems to be a common way to build a collection for many creative directors lately, regardless if it´s womenswear or menswear. Kim Jones in his fifth year at the French lux house re-explored his childhood in Kenya and Botswana that was his main source of inspiration for his debut collection at the brand. This time he used a traditional detailing from safari jacket and reinterpreted it in various tailored pieces to build a collection where, yes, the Saharan shades are predominated, but the whole travel and exotic spirit metaphor is "chilled" by a touch of eccentric, punk-inspired elements, patterns included, to turn the whole luxury experience into a contemporary and fierce elegance.
