Earth, Wind & Fire
The design duo behind CMMN, Saif Bakir and Emma Hedlund, opted for a classically autumnal palette for AW16 – an earthy euphony of auburn leather jackets, fiery red trousers and stalwart brown boots, all off-set against the occasional blue shirt reminiscent of that oh-so-fresh October sky. As well as being perfectly seasonal, they were clearly influenced by the youth of the 70s. Gentlemanly but playful, the perfect combination.
Up to our necks
The polo neck is a staple item, often accompanied by a wide, open-neck collar. In true CMMN fashion they present a modern man but classically dressed, the monotone polo neck adds an elegance to other more youthful items (wide set duffel coat with playful chequered patterns, we’ve got our eye on you). High necklines were coordinated with open, ankle length trousers which sit just above the boot – mundane items are united beautifully creating a collection which is anything but monotonous.
The Artful Dodger
Cropped jackets and trousers, covered necks and wide-set collars, combined with leather boots and topped off with that over-sized scarf seems so closely connected to Fagin’s troupe mastered in the art of deception. CMMN played on this idea but simultaneously revises the modern-day rascal – a collection that is as mischievous as it is stylish and effortlessly timeless at that.
