Heron Preston may be a streetwear designer through and through, but that doesn’t excuse him from relying too much on his laurels. In his Fall 2019 Menswear show, most of the looks that he presented were basically rehashes of past works, some better than their previous iterations, while others were considerably plainer. Take, for instance, the industrial jackets, which he also presented in his Spring 2019 show last season. But while the latter’s had more structure and depth, the former just seemed too much of a repeat to warrant the same kind of positive reaction. It bears noting that, considering this is a menswear show, the tinges of womenswear were much more impressive. The tailoring on the cropped denim ensemble and the leather jacket nipped at the waist was top notch! Meanwhile, the old-style parachute-nylon coat in cream with orange detailing or the similarly-hued mini skirt-suit whose detailing looked like it was spray-painted on were deeply impressive. This type of creative ingenuity is what is expected from designers like Preston, and the more he does this, both for his men’s and women’s line, the more he’ll succeed to greater heights in the fashion industry!
