Craig Green's shows are more like works of theater of performance art than a simple parade of new clothes. His collections are a dreamy abstraction of clothing, a place where everyday garments are turned on their heads. One of his favorite tricks is taking something that's integral to a garment's function — say, a strap or a hood — and abstracting it so it becomes completely useless. His vision is conceptual, but relatable. At the end of the day, he's one of the most talked-about designers on the Fashion Week circuit because his avant-garde clothing just looks great. He's probably the next Rei Kawakubo.

For FW17, Green's layered, intricate garments appeared in rough wool and shaggy fleece, with trailing straps and heavy ropes — a Green hallmark — used to fasten them together.

He played with notions of safety. Some pieces looked like walking life rafts, others like luxe bullet-proof vests. Some of his models looked like they were protected (or trapped?) by layers and layers of heavy carpet.

Overall, it's nothing new for Green, but when you're doing something that's lightyears ahead of everyone else, you don't need to reinvent yourself each season.
