Re/Done founder and designer Sean Barron isn’t afraid to play with references. In fact, his Pre-Fall 2019 Collection is all about taking different codes, usually of the denim sort, and making them current and contemporary. Perhaps the piece that best illustrates this feat is the bell-bottom jeans in the first look, which is a patchwork creation of various back-pockets from different jeans of different decades. The silhouette itself is very 70s, but with proper styling, can look like what the kids are wearing on the street. Fortunately, for the more mature fans of the label, denim isn’t the only material present in this line. Taking on the minimalist look of the 90s, as spearheaded by Calvin Klein during that decade, some black-and-white pieces make for more sophisticated and sensual offerings. A black slip-dress covers just the right amount of skin to be sexy without being overt, while a knitted short-sleeved number is both youthful, elegant, and hugs the female form just right. There’s even a leather mini skirt, most likely a nod to the 80s, and a suede jacket that looked straight out of the 70s, that further diversify the collection. And despite such basics, the craft and quality of such clothes are so high that they’re bound to sell like hotcakes next season!
