John Elliott Watching Water
John Elliott known for his minimalistic menswear debuted his own sneakers just in time for Spring/Summer 2017 which was Elliott’s biggest show to date. Kith’s Ronnie Fieg, En Noir designer Rob Noir, Virgil Abloh, Andre Iguodala, Pusha T, and Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin were just a few of the bold face names in attendance.
At his spring show, Elliott introduced refined menswear staples in vibrant colors as well as a line of new accessories including eyewear, bags, belts, and footwear. There were a lot of pastel colors, specifically the new dusty pink and also royal blue, kelly green, salmon, and icy metallic fabric finishes, including a muted pink silk bomber. Japanese terry cloth was rendered into t-shirts and hoodies which translated into a striking minimalist wardrobe staples. Elliott’s infamous Villain Hoodie which initially shot him to fame was also in there, but rendered in a fresh new iteration in Japanese terrycloth. All photos by Andy Rolfes
