Concept LA | Wayward Runway Presentation

Though I usually don’t focus on menswear, fashion is fashion!  I wanted to briefly introduce you to WAYWARD by Sam Adegoke. Wayward’s runway presentation last Saturday was a treat on a few levels. The collection was entitled “Nomads Cycle II.” Direct references to both the nomadic tribe of the Fulani and Adegoke’s love of motorcycles were visible throughout. Leather jackets, pants, shirts and vests were present in the collection, and well worthy of any motorcyclist. The palette consisted of black, taupe, cream, saddle and muted burgundy tones. Models were styled ruggedly, with many wearing dreadlocks or mussed hair styles. I loved the influence of the earth red scarves worn either around the neck or covering the lower half of the face. The juxtaposition of the traditional earth red fabric being worn by a modern day biker would was spot on. Loved the clothes. Loved the show . . . and loved the models!!! (just keepin’ it real. ☺)

On Saturday I attended a few of the Concept LA fashion shows at The Mack Sennett Studios in LA. The first show was Camelia Skikos’ Fall/Winter 2014-15 collection which was inspired by San Francisco, the city in which she currently resides. Skikos, a former designer for Levi Strauss and the Gap, created a collection using vivid colors directly inspired by street art visible around San Francisco. Dresses, jackets and skirts bore complementary colored leather trim which created a feeling of monochrome mondrian color blocking. Silhouettes were structured and clean, yet retained an edge of feminity. The collection was balanced out by blacks and grays and styled with bright lips and futuristic disc-shaped head pieces. Of note, is the fact that all garments are designed and made in California. Definitely a plus for our local economy!
