Taken from both traditional Chinese workwear and genderless, fluid silhouettes, FAAN‘s SS17 collection extends designer Aaron Jacobson’s practice further into a presentation of essential, natural shapes. The architectural feel for clothing is heightened in this collection in both long, narrow forms and tightly-cropped shoulders. Unisex shirts, shorts, dresses, smock tops and layered skirts express Jacobson’s ability to construct forms that disguise their meticulous construction with effortless shape and movement. Conceived with a palette of electric blue, white and grey, the SS17 collection includes mandarin shirts that feature top-stitched collars in a nod towards dressy detailing along with longer tencel dresses and thigh-length shirts fitted with seamlessly-integrated hip pockets and buttons. Pants and shorts are constructed to fit loosely, but boast a sharp focus on their form and gestures as wearable clothing. This kind of subtle detailing and construction runs throughout each piece in the collection, with comfortable fits intersecting with coherent, gestural forms. Within these straightforward designs and silhouettes, Jacobson forms the basis of the collection that transcribes his conceptual practice into immediately realizable and wearable clothing.
