Sibling x Robert Clergerie Homme collection SS15
There’s a lot to be distracted about at a Sibling show. If its not the foot stomping soundtrack there’s the smorgasbord of models (and the hottest models at LC:M always seem to do the Sibling show), a front row full of fashion legends and the wild styling and sense of theatrics which altogether create a visual spectacle perfectly pitched for Instagram sensation. This season sky-high hair, fringing and the general intent to provoke and push taste boundaries created more noise than ever. Beneath the spectacle however are some fine fashion details, as you’d expect from the trio with their collective fashion heritage. This season for me it was the footwear and the denims that invited a closer look. For SS15 Sibling have worked with Robert Clergerie Homme, the venerable label now under the helm of Roland Mouret and the result is an interpretation of the classic Delbie boot in both black and natural canvas. Sibling SS15 is all about youth tribes and the canvas boots perfectly complimented the denim pieces with their geometric punctures, the crocheted track suits and skull motifs. At once summer-ready and rebel-friendly the use of canvas is a great touch making them appear very versatile while the leather toe caps on the boots instantly suggest high-end. With this collaboration and another season of great denim pieces, Sibling are proving they have a lot more to offer than knitwear while retaining their reputation for the most
fun to be had at LC:M.
