Tourne de Transmission SS18 Collection at London Fashion Week Men

Titled The Lies That Bind, Graeme Gaughan, creative director, wanted to touch on the lack of transparency within policy, politics and media by adding layers of transparent materials to classic items such as trench coats and other outerwear.

There are additional elements of interchangeable text that can be changed as the wearer sees fit, alluding to the fact that society accepts or resists what we are media fed, generally changing our perspective based on what suits our personal circumstances at that point.

In addition, deconstructed elements of the garments exist via referencing divisions in society, bound by industry which overpowers and holds everything together.

Side panels are opened in the construction process - held together via industrial straps that can be loosened or tightened at the wearers behest - The Lies That Bind.
