RENEGADE TAILOR
London: London’s Todd Lynn may have contributed to Fall’s emerging punky attitude, but his specific inspiration was far from common. Instead the collection was a modern copycat of the “Gopher Gang,” an early 20th century anarchist group known for stealing clothes and reworking them at the seamstress, a quirky idea Lynn funneled into deconstructed menswear. Suiting jackets and coats arrived haphazardly gathered or slashed, skirts asymmetrically wrapped and trousers traditionally pintucked, while delicate woven lace pieces were shown sheer, as if the linings had been ripped out. Luxurious glossy furs and fitted leathers elevated Lynn’s experimental mood, and wide accordion pleats were approached with the fresh eye of a renegade tailor, resulting in very cool high low hem dresses cinched just under the bust. —Nina Stotler
