New York Fashion Week Spring 2015: SKINGRAFT

NYFW S/S 2015: SKINGRAFT Let’s shift gears for a moment and dive into something more casual… and approachable (actually, maybe not so much after all considering the theme).

NYFW S/S 2015: SKINGRAFT Skingraft, known for their edgy take on streetwear with a twist (usually having to do with the name which signifies a surgical procedure involving skin transplant), presented their spring/summer collection developed around a ‘blood’ theme inspired by Santeria, a syncretic religion of West Africa and the Caribbean.  NYFW S/S 2015: SKINGRAFT Elements involved in religious activities of Santeria are reincarnated as oversized printed shirts, leggings with metallic bone patterns, patched and/or layered leather pieces, and mesh and see-through accents with ethereal details which often resembled blood viewed under a microscope.
