Craig Green returns to the runway for the Fall Winter 2022 menswear show presented in London. Green and his team presented a show stopping fifty-three look menswear collection. The design sentiment stays in the instantly recognizable realm of Craig Green. However going through the looks it is inevitable to see the mark of the past years of isolation on the delivery of the message behind the collection. Bulky Craig Green lines are now more than ever a true modern day armour. Presented as sort of a shield from the pandemic surrounding us. Green plays with proportions in his signature sculptural manner, it is easy to say better than no other. However what he also brings to the table for us once again is his own sense for colour showcased throughout the extensive collection.
Footwear stands out on its own and supported by Adidas Originals it brings us hope of new Craig Green x Adidas collaborations in the works. The famed CG SCUBA PHORMAR is now accessorized, delivered to the London runway in various colours. In addition footwear is protected with additional Craig Green Adidas gear, a sort of small yet bulky shields for your feet and sneakers.
The new footwear pieces are going hand in hand with the collection, with ease the Craig Green Adidas sneakers now fall into piece of the massive puzzle set by the designer.
From rafting boat like inflatable armour like pieces to the fluffiest of sweaters the designer manages to reinvent the way we see menswear today. Needless to say a task almost brought to impossible heights by the constraints of menswear and its militarized lines. This menswear definition is forcing designers to only slightly adjust the existing tailoring patterns creating the same coat over and over again. However, while Craig Green’s outfits undoubtedly have a doze of military wardrobe attached to them, albeit a science fiction one, the designer and his team definitely are telling us they are still not afraid to experiment. And that is what we are here for.
Some of Craig Green’s runway outfits are simply not equipped for a daily wardrobe. Yet I can see one coveting a bulky Craig Green outfit. However how do you store it and preserve it? Fully inflated? As a sculpture and a work of art as it is I say.
