Can streetwear ever be glamorous? Designer Alejandro Gómez Palomo puts forth a fascinating answer for Fall 2019. This season, his brand, Palomo Spain, returns to New York Men’s Fashion Week and presents a flamboyant show of epic proportions, both figuratively and literally! Inspired by the Ballet Russe of the 1920s and their collaboration with Spanish avant-garde artists of that time, his clothes presented exaggerated volumes, electric colors, eye-catching prints, and vintage silhouettes. The flamboyancy of the decade was heavily apparent as well, what with the men wearing dresses and women wearing men’s suits (which today, no longer seems like such a groundbreaking idea). Despite the long and billowy dresses and voluminous harem-panted suits, however, things got a little too sensual by way of skin-tight bodysuits, a noteworthy variation was that of a cobalt blue in shimmering velvet. The collection played with gender archetypes and challenged both men and women to go beyond their comfort zones. But the question remains: is this a glamorous take on streetwear? Palomo insists that it is with all the nylon he used, particularly on a stark white anorak worn over a layered maxi dress—a men’s look, no less! He presents it as his own take on sportswear, which might just be what will burn the bridge between this market and high fashion to the ground!
