STILL ILL PRESENTS: GAY GOTH SCENE

Fashion, The Unpublished, This Is A Special

Inspired by the Gay Goth Scene video by The Hidden Cameras, the homonymous STILL ILL capsule collection tries a modern take on the original goth look by taking inspiration from horror movies like A Nightmare on Elm Street 2:Freddy’s Revenge and The Lost Boys , Gay Liberation slogans and vintage porn for a tongue in cheek mix of heavy metal lettering, slasher flicks, mesh and vinyl that celebrates teenage hormonal tension and fascination with darkness, with graphics that explore a nostalgic world of sexual awakenings and guilty pleasures, fetish and romance.

#hardcore95, works as the title, mood and a graphic for STILL ILL‘s FW 16/17 capsule collection. There’s a mid-90s general feel to the pieces and inspiration spans from Belgian gabbers and hardcore punk to the cult movie The Doom Generation, which turned 20 last year. A desire to mix the digital and a more manual approach translates into hand-drawn graffiti written directly on patterns, so they follow the shape of the garment and mix with the graphics, and a DIY section of hand-bleached denim with patches. Posters from  the seminal Gregg Araki movie are also cut up and pasted into collages to create prints for tunics and tops, the lo-fi mood of ripped and glued paper heightened by the extreme enlargement of small low quality digital images. As a whole a rougher and tougher look that nods to Stephen Sprouse and his luxe-punk aesthetic but with a cheaper, grungier 90s feel and a touch of digital reappropriation.

The collection is already available for press at Maximilian Linz PR even though more customized pieces will be presented in a few weeks. This will be the last STILL ILL capsule to have a seasonal denomination and will be on sale online during MFW.

ALL CLOTHES ANGELOS FRENTZOS SS 16

Uncovered Federation, Frentzos’ SS16 menswear collection, plays with familiar themes in ways that manage to be at the same time clever and romantic. Photographs of a vintage pilot’s overalls become an all-over print that enlarges the intricate lacing and details and mixes them with actual bondage straps in a virtual military straitjacket effect. Big patches with unfinished, raw, edges are attached with velcro straps, pants with uneven hems can be draped to the same length, straps and drawstrings make most pieces adjustable and give the wearer both comfort and power over the clothes. Even though they possess  a certain aggressive energy there is a softness about these clothes, like the romance of a long battle. With fabrics that look distressed by desert winds, jackets that grow siamese-twin doubles left hanging upside down like the coat-tails of an ancient military coat, sweaters built around holes, rope waistcoats that look more like macramè than japanese bondage, if there is a sense of rebellion and upheaval about them, it’s most certainly a revolt into style.

STILL ILL SS 16 : SAMORA CLUB

Samora Club is a happy post-atomic resort, a tropical rave-y club inspired by the homonymous song by italian avant-garde electro duo Krisma. Its pools are fulll of frolicking naked boys and sharks, kids diving in the sparkling water. And what’s more tropical than the atomic bomb? Nothing says ‘summer fun’ like an atomic explosion… At night the club takes on a kaleidoscopic rave feeling thanks to the dark and colorful images by model/photographer Sean Tofts, which actually feature STILL ILL’s FW15 collection, thus creating a sort of russian-doll-of-prints effect. A certain lightness pervades Samora Club, be it in the printed organza & chiffon pieces or the use of emoticons and graphics straight out of a teenager’s iPhone 4. So come to Samora Club next Summer! It’s 50% off with this coupon!

Being at the forefront of the Sport/Luxe trend of the last few seasons, Wang was the ideal candidate to create a sort of A-Z of metropolitan sportswear for the larger public. With a palette that runs the gamut, so to speak, from light grey to black, and materials like neoprene, leather and dry-fit the collection moves from sport to catwalk, to sidewalk, and back again. If you liked what we used in our little special, here’s some of the items in detail.

ALL CLOTHES STILL ILL SS ’15 EXCEPT ‘PAIN’ AND ‘REVOLT’ SHORTS STILL ILL RESORT ’14

The new STILL ILL capsule’s graphics are developed in 3 main themes: ‘FREAK’ celebrates uniqueness and off-center glamour through images of personal icons and post-punk nightclubbing legends such as Stephen Linard, Judith Frankland and Marilyn, ‘#WEBBOYS’ explores sex,love and pain in a digital world, through found images, glitched on an iPhone app, and fake website names and hashtags, ‘GYM’ is a tongue-in-cheek exploitation of the age’s obsession with the perfect body through the use of vintage ‘beefcake’ images reimagined in a digital way. Shapes and cuts remain basic and unisex with a new version of the tank-tunic, a shorter, boxier sleeveless t-shirt and and a short loose tank top.

Riding a wave of blessed creativity and a refined eye for the subtly commercial, our pal Angelos is back with an even more amazing collection. After going back to some familiar themes from his archive for AW14 he went on to explore the world of the circus through his by now classic silhouettes, patches prints, a skillful use of mesh and a wink to sportswear and a touch of the Jap. With details that verge on luxury ( silk-linen jacquard, hand stitched and hand cut fringe,  Made In Japan mesh) and a street-savy attitude, it’s a collection we can’t honestly wait to get our paws on!
