Few designers can generalize what they do when designing The real emotions felt are designing a series and translating it into a series with Commission clothing duo Dylan Cao and Jin Kay with very similar designs (Huy Luong no longer uses the label). Spring is inspired by “a period of dramatic change in our personal lives,” Cao said. “We found the change romantic, but also subversive in its unpredictability.”
Twisted seams in almost every garment The details are all about this unpredictability: red track-inspired trousers open the Lookbook; jackets and shirts are cut to be worn intentionally half-open (not a styling trick with a binder on the garment!); flat Knitted tank tops and silk dresses; hoodies without their usual scruffy. Twisted seams aren’t just details that represent a world upside down, they combine with the fit and silhouette of the garment on the body, like an oversized button-down shirt cut with a low neckline so it hangs over the body.
At the same time, the details of the inside and outside of the pants especially have a subversive healthy dose, such as the flies inside and outside, Or the belt is paved the wrong way. Continuing the committee’s investigation and deconstruction of quintessentially American sportswear, an intricate diamond-knit sweater was reversed, then patched and embroidered in contrasting loops. The sports mesh used for football shirts is embroidered with asymmetrical stripes for an unexpected dressy look.
“We also touched on other elements of youth culture, such as rave culture and cyber goth, Even Harajuku,” Cao said. You can see hints of these subcultures in certain aspects of fit or styling — like the extra-wide jeans made from chunky denim or the miniskirts that dominate womenswear products — but Commission clothing is always grounded in real life, Made for adults who don’t want to dress up when they’re young but don’t want to forget where they came from.
A white dress with twisted fabric details and plenty of ruffles, built on a strong mesh base that allows the wearer to keep Inside, while looking like it fell from the body. Paired with two black leather straps, it’ll make a beautiful wedding dress for those who don’t want to forego the edgy aesthetic in favor of a heart necklace or pearl accents on their big day. It is no coincidence that Kai and Cao have been invited to design wedding dresses many times. “Women don’t want a wedding dress, they just want a cool dress,” Cao said. Of course, that also explains why their whole approach works so well. Men, women and non-binary people just want to wear cool clothes to express themselves and what they’re going through, and at Commission, Kay and Cao always do.
