Meryll Rogge from Belgium leaning on athlete (as portrayed in Hollywood); prom styling at Thom Browne. Then there’s All-In’s Debutante collection, shown at the Collège-lycée Jacques-Decour in Montmartre, which is a reasonable alternative to America’s Anytown-smelling teenage mental gym.
Benjamin Barron and Bror August, from the US and Norway, respectively, are based in Paris and are the designers behind this upcycled brand, which in a way The above is an insider’s secret. Maryam Nassir Zadeh was an early supporter, Lotta Volkova modeled in last season’s collection, and Inti Wang, Leon Dame, Issa Lish and Ceval were some of the faces at the spring debut party today. (“Companions” at the event include the Swedish Fashion Council, which has been helping designers build brands as part of their talent incubator program.)
Fandom embodied in a collage of t-shirts from Madonna, Janet Jackson, and more On teen idol dresses, that’s one of the themes in the collection, Barron said. “I was inspired by the idea of a teenager putting their idols together on a bedroom wall; collecting things or people that inspired them and trying to present different parts of their identity that had been diluted from the rest of the culture. Like someone learns about punk through Pink or hyperfemininity through Britney Spears.” August added: “It’s the idea of someone trying out different types of identities and styles for the first time, and the failures that come from that experience, or At least you don’t know the meaning of what you wear.

Earlier this week, Demna declared that “fashion is a visual art” and he felt no need to express his work in words. Still, the models trudging through the mud did more than paint a picture, they sparked an exodus and raised questions about consumerism and what we value.
For all its brilliance and the deliciousness that makes them eat cake, All-In manages to go beyond the surface. The idea of using existing materials (mainly because the shoes will go into production) is an acknowledgement of responsibility for the environment and the future. Upcycling requires solution-based design. There’s a lot of touch and ingenuity in this collection: see how vintage denim is covered in black lace; how the sleeves of a skirt are turned upside down to create the effect of a handkerchief hem; how a towel takes on a Greek pleat. The way the clothes are assembled takes the work beyond the surface and puts the focus on transformation. “By decontextualizing the garment and removing some of the symbols that we thought the garment already had, we allowed new identities and new styles to come into it,” Barron said. If this is an invitation, we will reply yes, thank you very much.
