OAMC Autumn Winter 17

After seasons of presenting their collections like art installations, OAMC debuted its AW17 range at Paris Fashion Week on the runway within the Faculté de Pharmacie de Paris. Consisting of looks that are wearable and directional, creative director Luke Meier triumphed in merging formal dressing and utility wear with his own take on twisted detailing

Exploring how people are accepted into special-access situations and questioning where the power structure lies, the setting was specifically selected to allude the non-familial experience of association and acceptance.

Synthetic fabrics were used, lending a youthful and sporty element but because the material were treated with special finishings, the pieces had a luxurious look. Oversized stripe shirts and puffer jackets came with chest straps while unexpected zip placements on trousers and coats breathed new life into conventional silhouettes.

Symbols also ran through the pieces subliminally – sweaters with cut out patterns resembled a death-head moth and Aleister Crowley’s “Do What Thou Wilt” ran down the side of an outwear. To complete the looks, bold accessories like elongated necklaces and giant safety pins gave an edgy look as the models sauntered down.

Meier has always respected workmanship and understands its relevance in menswear. He adapted basting stitches and hand-stitched reverse-construction tailoring for jackets and trousers, highlighting the clever juxtaposition of tradition and modern aesthetics. As far as inaugural runway shows are concerned, OAMC has unreservedly made a memorable impact.
