Following a very well-received collection at London Fashion Week Men’s, Kiko Kostadinov presented his latest collection for British heritage brand MACKINTOSH in Paris.
Following on from previous collections that were themed around glass, rubber, and felt, Kostadinov chose one material as a starting point for his fourth MACKINTOSH collection. For SS19, the London-based designer chose lead, in particular, an image of artist Richard Suerra throwing molten lead over his Castelli warehouse in New York for his 1968 ‘Splash’ series.
The collection’s workwear styles (see slide #1 for reference) were also inspired by the visuals from 1997 sci-fi flick Gattaca, which gives the interstellar jumpsuit silhouettes. The color palette of sea green, cornflower blue and brown balanced the futuristic styles with earthy tones inspired by the ’60s Arte Povera movement that informed Kostadinov’s debut for MACKINTOSH.
