Being a fair bit consumed of late, I’ll confess that I have been, regrettably, inattentive to all of the wonderful things that are generally of great interest to me in terms of art, fashion, etc. And this negligence is why I am just now seeing Hogan McLaughlin’s Spring 2021 collection and the marvelously innovative approach he’s taken to sharing it with us, during these strange and isolating times which are causing us all to rethink and adapt our various creative processes.
Drawing inspiration from styles of the 16th and 18th centuries, the Hogan McLaughlin SS21 collection marries a minimalist sensibility and a muted palette in its twenty-four pieces. And the models draped and displayed in these ensembles, during a season in which conventional fashion week runway events and many-peopled photoshoots are in effect, off the table? “Inspiring friends and artists of various mediums,” notes McLaughlin, who have each “interpreted a garment and injected their personality” into a unique and intimate series of portraits.
Ok. Well. This is an incredible gathering, and I am finally paying attention again! See a few of our favorites from these creative collaborations, below.
