Wesley Harriott SS17 Lookbook
My absolutely favourite designer at the moment, Tottenham born Womenswear designer Ricky Wesley Harriott launches his SS17 collection channeling a lifelong enchantment with the concept of the female assassin. He uses his fascination into creating pieces for his figurative muse- the femme fatale figure of the worlds of Japanese anime, video games and hip hop culture. His muse is raw,unforgiving female that dances between heroism and insanity, creating a uniform that allows her to live amongst us in reality.
Technical fabrics, distressed corduroy and canvas show the strength of the woman while the fitted design shows off her feminine figure. Masks that relate to the female assassin, hidden pockets combined with power mesh, Chinese satin and cotton velvet brings to life the female assassin that can be worn by the modern female.
