These are some sketches that I did during the Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY SS19 catwalk show. I really wanted to draw something during the show as I knew it was going to be a feast for the eyes. I wanted to witness the moment in my own way. Once the show was over, I added a few details to my drawings, even if I tried to keep a sketchy vibe.
The LOVERBOY SS19 was one of the best shows of this London Fashion Week Men's, and also one of the most crowded! I was very excited and looking forward to it: it was also the first time that I had the pleasure to attend a LOVERBOY show.
The set was also quite rich, with a singing choir and dancers along the runway: they really set the tone since the beginning, welcoming us to the very peculiar Charles Jeffrey's universe.
EMERGENCE, the title of the collection, was certainly a marking point for Charles Jeffrey, as he reflects on the concept of body. He proposes his own vision through a science fiction lens.
LOVERBOY SS19 explores a modern idea of gender in the digital age, it deals with an unfiltered version of our bodies, in an attempt of embracing our insecurities and celebrating our flaws.
"Sending many emotional questions into orbit, this show marks a continued, delicate transformation".
