If Lawrence of Arabia and Ziggy Stardust gave birth to a ninja prodigy, then abandoned him in a dystopian wasteland to master the art of mind control, learn how shred the guitar and befriend wolves; the new SS09/10 lookbook from Chronicles Of Never may well be his photo diary.
Armed only with a magical chest of clothes from
the future Mars and a freakish sense of direction, Chronicles Of Never’s nomadic hero represents another step forward in Gareth Moody’s design sensibility. All his aesthetic touchstones are there: a monochromatic colour palette, volume, raw finishes, draped fabrics and a keen eye for structure but with pieces such as a desert proof cloak/turban, which wouldn’t look astray on a Mad Max extra, Moody has disregarded wearability for something far more whimsical. In a climate where risk takers are an endangered species, Moody’s experimentation is a revelation.
The collection drops late September but in the meantime check out the Lexie Reeves styled and Jeff Yiu shot lookbook below…
