"Contrasting functional athletic fabrics with detailed laces, Spring/Summer 19 offers its take on femininity of a new generation, seeking freedom and genderlessness.“
Showing for the first time as part of the Paris Fashion Week official calendar, SULVAM was one of the little gems of this season.
The Japanese brand has been founded in 2014 by designer Teppei Fujita, who had previously worked for Yohji Yamamoto. SULVAM has already shown in Milan and Florence, during Pitti Uomo, and for their latest collection has chosen the City of Lights.
SULVAM SS19 Presentation was staged as an imaginary school. Older models play fashionable teachers and cool kids with oversized eyewear rock a new colour palette of soft pastels and greys.
It's a school of freedom, where colour, gender and art mix beautifully with no boundaries. Inclusivity is key to this collection, as the designer presents also some womenswear pieces for the first time.
