Heron Preston is looking back at his first fashion week presentation while offering an unconventional take on the suit. He’s teamed up with Dattner Architects, which designed The Spring Street Salt Shed where his seminal show was held in 2016, for this runway-only piece that’ll be shown with his SS20 collection.
Dattner designed the piece to blend the house’s aesthetic practice with Preston’s own ideologies. The result is Tyvek suiting with 3-D quilted panels foam-impregnated linings that maximize the effects of lighting and motion. They also went with a low-waste approach, an ethos important to both parties involved. Co-branding appears both on the pant- and arm-leg.
Now if only we could rock this lab-formal hybrid out in the wild.
