Crane Visit Designer Craig Green at his London Studio

BA/MA graduate of prestigious Central Saint Martins College, London.

Always poised to push the boundaries out,  just that bit further

Green presented a collection, which seemed relatively subdued –

in light of his previous offerings.

Black was prevalent colour, which grounded the collection

 adding textural interest with fabrics/materials.

Juxta-posed were opulent, colourful, patterned pieces.

Leather body harness with floor length strips,

some with carrier elements –

was an edge factor.

The noted accessories:

hand-held bags with front pouch

brogue-like shoes – laced under double straps

were spot on sensational.

The design aesthetics were of Asian influences in silhouette and styling:

Chinese skull-caps, wide-rimmed shade hats

Garments were: loose, asymmetric, layered –

kindred spirit to the design philosophy of  Yohji Yamamoto.

The collection is clean, elegant, un-fussed.
