Living cool - the name of Moe’s SS18 collection and the direct inspiration for the collection. Emanuele D’Angelo’s photo series about the lowrider culture in LA, Baby Let’s Cruise”, sat the mood and vibe for the collection - cool, self assure, relaxed yet dedicated. Moe keeps focussing on reinventing classic staples, adding edge to the formal wardrobe, presenting exclusive styles in a new, fresh context. Wanting to provoke and create attention. Through the collection Moe presents wearable statement pieces which should give the user this feeling - dedicated, strong and powerful, yet effortless and cool.
The designer’s fascination for mixing elements from construction engineering and fashion continues for SS18. Elements from cars, more precisely seat belts and cam buckle straps, are merged and become an integrated part of suit trousers, shirts or suit jackets. Function and ability to adjust how to wear the garment gives the user ownership and they have to make a stand about how to use the garment.
