“Once A Mother’s Child” Creative director Luke Meier has continually proven his competence when it comes to the synthesis of art and fashion. For his Fall/Winter collection, he has chosen to explore the feelings that may be associated with a return to one’s home, and particularly after an intense or traumatic experience abroad. As part of this concept, Meier has looked to the work of two artists who fought in WWII, albeit for opposite sides- Joseph Beuys (1921-86) and Elmsworth Kelly (1923-2015). Beuys is seen through the use of felt coats and rubber boots, while Kelly’s colour field work has influenced the majority of the graphics in the collection. Additionally, Kelly’s occupation during the war has been referenced; he was part of the “Ghost Army”, which was tasked with creating realistic Allied units, complete with inflatable tanks, as an intimidation tactic.
OAMC represents a harmonious balance between modern aesthetics and innovative techniques. Taking influence from contemporary culture, traditional menswear, functional and rational design, nature, technical innovation, material development, and extensive traditional craft, Creative Director Luke Meier creates modern menswear for the culture and context of now. Respect for the past is important; notions of re-creating the past are not. OAMC is about the present; what is aesthetically pleasing now; what is culturally relevant now; what is technically possible and valid now.View Collection
