Spring 2010 | Shipley & Halmos

sh2 Spring 2010 | Shipley & Halmos

Opting for a presentation this season, Shipley & Halmos turned to short films for inspiration. Entitled “Versus”, the collection took shape in the form of four films showcasing models in the same ensembles illustrating various scenarios such as “static versus motion” or “action versus reaction”. The concept is a great play on words and emotions seeing as designers Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos took a more lax route this season. Setting up the likes of casual knits and outerwear against more formal garments, versus took on a whole new meaning as Shipley & Halmos illustrated that they can pull off a laid-back collection, while still maintaining their clean lines and impeccable tailoring.

      I don’t know about that one. I can see how some people would find it boring, but for me, it is about context. With their body of work and price point, it is nice to see such a refined, but lax collection that is not overburdened by styling. The pieces are straight-forward. You can look at them and decide, do I like this? For me, it’s a quick yes or no without having to contemplate other pieces that or shown or that I already have. For instance, I am more an Ann Demeulemeester type of guy, but I love the first blazer. I can imagine it played don with jeans and a long knit or spruced up with coordinating trousers and oxfords. But, at the end of the day, fashion is quite subjective.
