Wood House Spring Summer 2018
The collection: There is something refined about Wood House’s Spring Summer 18 range made up of streetwear pieces. Mesh is seen in the form of muscle T-shirts, tank tops and lounge pants while tailoring is recreated with a looser silhouette.
Reflective panels and the word “Caution” are emblazoned on garments, tying in with the political reflection that designer Julian Woodhouse has taken with this collection.
Zip-off panels turn short jackets into long coats for the cooler weather and short shorts and relax ¾ pants make up the different silhouettes this season.
The inspiration: The brand continues to show optimism in this political uncertainty. Designer Woodhouse explains that the collection “was stitched with the hopes of a brighter future” and even though everyone is politically engaged in their own way, taking a break and enjoying life is allowed from time to time.
The brand: Julian Woodhouse is the creative force behind the brand and officially moved the brand to NYC in January 2017, after years spent throughout Europe, Asia and North America. This is the label’s sixth season and Woodhouse’s goal is to ultimately offer products that appeal to both the commercial and niche market at competitive pricing. Having commissioned into US army, Woodhouse is also an ex-model who has appeared in campaigns for Puma, Samsung and New Balance.
We love: The mesh parka with plastic encasing gets all kinds of yes. It’s a practical piece that’s fun and its colour blocking is a reminder of pride culture, which in these political times seem more important than ever.
