For 2017, it’s British outwear brand, Mackintosh, goal to take a more contemporary approach to their apparel. This began with the announcement that a young Bulgarian designer named, Kiko Kostadinov, would be serving as the creative director of it new designer-focused, Mackintosh 0001 line. For those who aren’t familiar with Mr. Kostadinov, he is a menswear designer who graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2016 with a BA and MA Fashion Design. He has earned a cult following for his utilitarian and undecorated designs that tells a story, whilst provoking a unique feeling for the wearer.
Kostadinov’s vision is exemplified within this lookbook for the Mackintosh 0001 collection. Using the Arte Povera movement of the 1960s as a starting point, the designer utilizes Mackintosh’s seam-sealed rubberized construction wit glossy accents throughout. The collection is also unisex, therefore anybody can imagine themselves in the oversized Mac coats, hooded parkas, and short collared coats.
Keep an eye out for the official release of the Mackintosh 0001 later this year.
