British brand Molly Goddard showed menswear on the catwalk for the first time
While Molly Goddard’s usual runway play of frothy tulle in sherbet shades doesn’t exactly scream style-savvy gentlemen, her first menswear offerings are exactly that. The relaxed tailoring came in chequered-patterns and seventies shades, layered over Goddard’s signature Fair Isle jumpers in autumnal palettes, and styled to teddyboy perfection by form of patent-leather Brothel Creepers.
While the individual components sound more chaotic then slick, the overriding clean aesthetic cut nicely through the Daliesque maximalism of the womenswear counterparts.
Our verdict? Goddard’s first foray into menswear was small in number but big in impact, with her avant-garde personal handwriting of design translating into playful suiting for the stylish man.
If Wes Anderson made a movie about an up-and-coming ‘70s bands first tour on the road, Molly Goddard’s pieces would be a signed, sealed and delivered choice for the costume department.
