Editor’s Notes: Designer Ev Bravado (real name Everand Best) debuted his new label WHO DECIDES WAR at Paris Fashion Week. Bravado is known for his DIY aesthetic, with his customizations worn by Virgil Abloh (who was front row) and Playboi Carti. He’s also collaborated with Abloh on denim pieces for Off-White™.
Now, Bravado has turned his hand to a more pared-down approach, with natural hues and a focus on sustainability. Raw, untreated Italian silk and dyes made from tea and coffee feature in the “Fall From Grace” collection. That’s not to say the designer has completely departed from what’s trending — the collection contains streetwear elements, as well as custom PUMA sneakers.
Bravado wants to send a message with his designs, saying, “There are some logos and graphics out there that draw from things that are dark and negative, and people don’t really think about the message in fashion anymore. This is our counter to that; we’re here to celebrate something that’s about the good of the world.”
