‘Minimalist utility nomads’ and dark origins, we steal 60 seconds with Matthew Miller ahead of LC:M AW15.
The AW15 moodboard
Matthew Miller does more than just design clothes. With dystopian manifestos and socio-political undercurrents, his emotionally charged work occupies the jarring space between fashion and politics, simultaneously straddling both worlds. A cult fashion purveyor, Miller is able to convey profound sadness as well as more subtle emotions delivering a shock to the senses with his immersive work.
From his AW14 protest of gender-bend models stomping down the catwalk, to his pin-stripe patched and memorial wreath adorned army on their journey of despair for SS15 – Miller delivers a pulsating assemblage of youth codes from a political perspective. We steal 6o seconds with Miller ahead of LC:M.

It’s Been a techno kind of a season with Daniel Avery being the main protagonist.
