BOSS Curated: Fall/Winter 2019
This season, with a curator’s eye, BOSS celebrates the art of elevated style. New York, a city of boundless creativity, is the starting point for a fusion of art, design and architectural influences, united on the runway in a new modernist collection.
We find the BOSS man and woman in the gallery district of Chelsea, taking inspiration from the Manhattan art scene. Their curated personal style is at once confident and understated, seamlessly combining a precise BOSS approach with an easygoing spirit.
Suiting, an integral part of the BOSS heritage, is the starting point. The BOSS art of tailoring continues to evolve this season, with signature sporty influences, altered proportions and modern double-breasted silhouettes all designed to catch the eye.
Tailored coats are in focus – long greatcoats and capes in shearling, alpaca wool and double-faced cashmere. Impeccably crafted patchwork and stripe constructions sit alongside new takes on quilting, which extend from outerwear to sweaters, vests and pants. Structured coats contrast perfectly with fluid dresses for her, and slouchy knitwear for him.
Luxurious fabrics and expert workmanship come together to refine and renew each piece. Knitwear features distinctive stripe motifs, while mixed materials are in evidence on both outerwear and accessories.
Sculptural shapes and unexpected proportions draw on architectural influences, while raw-edge finishes and stitching details further underscore the elevated feel of this curated collection.
Color is used sparingly, with a core palette of camel, mélange gray, biscuit and winter white. Accents include cool yellow together with a mix of blues brought to life with flashes of dark blush pink.
Each design invites you to look twice – and then to look again. From artistic references to unique materials, signature BOSS attention to detail informs not only the individual pieces, but also the curation of the entire collection. The more you look, the more you see.
