A/W 2020

PH5 2020秋冬系列,设计师想把大家带进美国60年代炙手可热的摄影师Slim Aarons快门下的摩登滑雪旅人世界中,穿梭到覆盖着白雪的山顶,揭开冬季度假的帷幕。本季的PH5女性,是随性且无忧无虑的,就像Aaron相机中完美捕捉到的享乐主义者度假时的放松和洒脱。

PH5在纽约的第八场官方日程静态秀,在位于The Standard Hotel, Highline酒店三楼中还原了一个滑雪场的场景,现场供应的热苹果酒;以及浅浅播放的颇具乡村风格的音乐;三幅不同形态和高度的大型滑雪场背景板之间,交错地呈现着身着PH5滑雪造型的模特们,仿佛让宾客“瞬移”到了2020年的冬季。

即使滑雪场和小木屋可能被雪覆盖着,但PH5女性不畏寒冷。PH5挑战传统“滑雪服”的所谓功能性主导设计思路,取而代之的是设计师从Slim Aarons的记录中汲取灵感养分,观察60年代美国大众去度假村滑雪时有些许诙谐滑稽的穿着姿态,衍生出更具都市轻松感的PH5 滑雪装扮,结合品牌标志性的运动感廓形,同时也少不了品牌最有特点的颜色组合以及冲突感强烈的千鸟格印花,身着PH5的女性可以别具风格的在山坡上欣赏雪景,亦或是在壁炉边喝着热托迪酒。

PH5始终致力于挑战传统针织品的边界,将建筑形式感与精致的针织元素融合在一起。2020秋冬系列中,新加入了色彩抢眼的针织粗花呢,正反两穿的羊绒羊毛混纺粗针厚毛衣,以及用一个个不规则羽绒包拼接出的毛织羽绒背心和羽绒外套,又或者带有PH5 Logo的大阔腿滑雪连体服。同时创新的UV感光系列也继续延续,服装的色彩会根据暴露在阳光下的程度,从灰白色慢慢变为粉蓝色,这也表现了PH5在针织的道路上,没有停下过他们的想象力和好奇心。

同时PH5的秋冬系列中还同步推出了品牌第一季运动系列。这个带有压缩感,速干,快排汗等功能性的毛织条纹运动上衣,单车短裤和连体裤等都代表着PH5正在向一个全新领域的迈入。
