Editor’s Notes: The Our Legacy Spring 2020 collection, called “Joyous Reunion,” is influenced by the “clash between tradition and progression.”
Creative director Christopher Nying explained, “As we become more enlightened, there is a disconnect between tradition and progression. This collection is inspired by that disconnect, and the social movements who push boundaries, whether it is the anti-war demonstrations, the sexual liberation, or the birth of funk… The result is pieces of clothing as modern placards.”
The collection consists of retro futuristic materials combined with artisanal handicraft — bleached silk, patent leather, latex-inspired synthetics, hand-knitted details mix with earthy colors, papier-maché, photo collages, and illustrations.
