Onlookers feasted their eyes on a collection that had a ton of vision and a lot to offer. The Exiles International brand exhaled a collection filled with a celebration of color and culture by exploring the influence that Asian culture and heritage have on fashion.
Pinstriped floor length men’s skirt and traditional samurai kimonos opened the show, highlighting the burgeoning trend. But the direction shifted sooner than we all thought as a few boxer briefs hoisted by suspenders made their way to the catwalk. Fashioned in prints of newspaper and comic clippings, there was definitely an exciting spin on everyday basics.
The Far East wasn’t the only region being venerated by the designers, as they brought a taste of the Bahamas to this collection. While Androsia and the designs of Bahama Handprints may not be seen as groundbreaking, the construction and silhouettes were with Exiles.
The crop top is here to stay, and Exiles made sure of that by pushing out a few. Not to mention an assortment of oceanic inspired pieces: palazzo pants and tops with printed seashells and seahorses, echoing the island aesthetic.
Granted, there were one or two misplaced pieces: namely a hooded trench. But all in all, the collection offered excitement and nostalgia. And if fashion didn’t evoke at least those two emotions, then fashion it is not.
