Between chipped walls and exposed tubes emerging from holes in the floor, Afterhomework Paris presented its FW19 collection as part of Paris Fashion Week.
The very young Pierre Kaczmarek and Elena Mottola – Afterhomework – (Kaczmarek began designing when he was only 15 years old) propose again a fresh collection based on the best of the urban culture of our time. A bet faithful to the androgynous and unisex style of the firm, where undoubtedly the great protagonist has been the wrinkled fabric that was repeated in many garments in this collection. Something that we saw in the previous SS19 collection and that has become a sign of identity for Afterwork.
The tailoring once again shone through its treatment along with fabrics that connected us with the future and a totally timeless palette of colours. The collaborations were also present, this time: Converse – deconstructed – and an alliance with KWAY.
The vibrant eye shadowswere reminiscent of the 90s and gave a fun and eye-catching touch to pieces in neutral and sober colours. The colour pattern has played with different shades of blue, grey, green and beige. The technical textures also stand out, which have perfectly hybridised the traditional sport codes with the experimental aestheticsof the Parisian brand.
This collection is yet another demonstration that the firm, which has only been present in the industry for two years, is a key piece in the fashion system and will continue to play a leading role in the coming seasons. Because Pierre and Elena have internalized the reality of what FASHION is.
