WANT LES ESSENTIELS have recently introduced their rebranded Autumn/Winter 2015 collection in their latest exhibit at one of the most important global platform in men’s fashion, Pitti Uomo, taking place January 13 – 16, 2015.
Following the successful concept installations that have debuted at the show during previous seasons, co-founders Byron and Dexter Peart have created yet another unique and experiential exhibit for the world to discover.
This season, WANT LES ESSENTIELS invites you on a galactic voyage as the brand launches its latest collection. Drawing parallels between the past and how it informs our future, the Pearts were inspired to construct a universe of their own where technology and science are blended with simplicity and modern design.
The brand’s freestanding showroom exhibits a futuristic exterior–constructed from impenetrable materials such as sheet metal, glass and black woodwork–juxtaposes an interior that showcases a collection filled with plush fabrics, soft lines and a dreamy color palette that simultaneously evokes optimism and depth.
Classic silhouettes are adorned with innovative design treatments, such as matte and metallic leathers, exotic skins and textured finishes. The result is a collection that feels refreshingly new while still retaining a timeless quality. Iconic products, such as the O’Hare tote and the Kastrup backpack, return this season, this time reimagined in rich wools, quilted nylons and intricate jacquards.
As galactic elements and transcendental themes grace this season’s offerings, they are carefully balanced by the brand’s calculated design, clean lines and the classic aesthetic so closely tied to its identity.
WANT LES ESSENTIELS invites you to discover the collection and the inspiration that lies ahead for Autumn/Winter 2015.
