Central Saint Martins graduates Mao and Alve are the creatives behind the fashion label Sirloin. Inspired by the ‘perfect holiday’ in Miami – which they soon realized was perfect in theory rather than in reality – Sirloin’s spring summer 2018 collection remarks on how China is mirroring America in the ‘90s, becoming the new ‘land of possibilities’. Referencing classic shows such as Baywatch and Miami Vice, the designers present us with contrasting fabrics and garments in unlikely pairings; a blazer over a swimsuit or a trench coat by the pool shape Sirloin’s own version of ‘new rich’.
Gypsy Sport founder, Rio Uribe, presented his SS18 collection in a guerilla-style, fashion flash runway on a bustling Friday night in the middle of Place de la République. Amidst skaters, protesters and commuters, Uribe's presentation had a similar vibe to his brand launch in Washington Square Park in New York during the SS15 season. Showing off his DIY-ready-to-wear styles such as a dress made entirely of touristic key chains, his collection showcases his talent and skill in each piece.
