Fall 2019 marks the first season Stockholm-based brand Eytys forayed into ready-to-wear and it clearly shows. Max Schiller‘s maiden collection for the brand reeks of gimmicky styles, questionable construction, and low-quality textiles. Not to mention the vulgar styling that tied this monstrosity altogether. Just take a look at the first ensemble: a logo-ed white tank top paired with slightly overblown dark jeans and a black velvet cowboy hat. If that isn’t a stripper’s off-duty uniform, we don’t know what is! And what of the oversized puffers and denim jackets? More of the same from other streetwise sportswear brands? A resounding yes! The endlessly unflattering proportions continued with an awkward-fitting floor-length denim skirt that looked impossible to walk in as well as some baggy jeans that appeared to have been plucked straight out of the 1990s. The poor quality of the textiles was most evident in the leather pieces—or at least, we think (and hope) they’re leather—they look more like crumpled plastic upon first glance. Never have we witnessed such a heinous collection, and if Schiller and his brand want to survive the industry, they’re going to have to do a lot better than this trash!
