For it’s debut collection in Autumn Winter 2020, Christian Kye is celebrating the brand’s multi-cultured background, drawing influence from Jamaica, Ghana and London. Vibrant colours capture the essence of these places, with flavours becoming fabrics and sceneries becoming style staples.
Christian Kye explains: “The biggest influence from Jamaica has been the food, the flavours, not sharp or over powering – just right. The way that the palette is so international in terms of being quite easy to understand from different cultures – the palette of clothing.” “Ghana has brought the colours and flavours similar to Jamaica, but Ghana feels more like home.”
“Christian Kye stands with an avant-garde perspective and form in a nostalgic space; employing, developing and interpreting garment construction techniques ascribed to late eighties, early nineties ready-to-wear fashion…Tastefully executed with contemporary disciplines.”
Beginning as a very personal menswear brand – based off the founder himself and his style and culture – it has since grown into a fluid space, blending statement looks with innovative staples. “The first AW20 collection was about showing the world who CHRISTAIN KYE is, an introduction into our cohesively mismatched world.”
Offbeat as it is on trend, avant-garde but approachable, the Christian Kye AW20 collection marks the fashion house undoubtedly as one to watch.
