WGSN takes a closer look at the S/S 2015 collection of London based menswear designer Alex Mullins.

Hailing from south west London, Alex Mullins studied BA Fashion with Print at Central Saint Martins, following with an MA in menswear at the Royal College of Art. A 2012 graduate, Mullins was part of the initial collective of young designers (alongside Craig Green and Claire Barrow) for the debut of London Collections: Men, making a name for himself with his statement graphics, humour and interesting fabric techniques.

Now in his third independent season since graduating, Mullins looked to a colourful wardrobe of bleached and ripped denim for his S/S 15 collection “American Indian Motorcycle Gang”. The static presentation imagined as the title suggests, a gang of motorcycle outsiders hanging out in a Malibu trailer park. But instead of signature black biker leathers, Alex Mullins reimagined these renegades in carefully destroyed denim and in sun-bleached shades of peach, pink, sand and chambray.

Standout items include a shirt crafted with three layers of blue muslin with distressed accents around the seams, while a bleached denim safari jacket was slashed and shredded to the point of destruction. Print and patterns came via Neo-expressionist style prints, abstract appliqué shapes and scraped and smeared colour over white denims.
