Since the launch of his eponymous label in fall 2014, Kenneth Ning has become known for his original, fashion-forward approach to formalwear and tailoring. Staying true to this trademark style, the AW15 collection translates many of the central elements coined in spring/summer- namely the distinctive pixel-like prints, graphic lines and reworked forms- into a desaturated, more conventionally formal collection. Although familiar pinstripe and herringbone prints and traditional fabrics dominate the offerings- recalling time-honoured tailoring- the New York based designer keeps us on our toes, injecting futuristic fabrics, prints and textures into the mix and deconstructing expected silhouettes. Wonderful examples of this are the oversized sleeveless jackets, visually dissected by decisive contrasting lines, or the structured suit, almost entirely embossed with the signature print. Kenneth Ning AW15 is the ultimate hybrid of contemporary and classic.
