Inspired by a church massacre in his hometown during the Haitian Revolution, designer José Durán turns out an intriguing collection of organized chaos. Playing a balancing act with garments that rely heavily on both deconstructed and structured elements, Durán brings the attractiveness of both techniques together for a range that engages. Challenging tradition, circumstance brings a vivid masculinity to Durán’s daring image of a modern warrior. Great attention to the shaping of the shoulders creates strength, while draping adds a certain softness. Altogether, the collection makes a loud statement with a distinct point of view, while still possessing more quiet traits that are translatable to individual wardrobes.
