Entitled “Alpha”, Skingraft’s Fall 2014 collection is inspired by the idea of drastic climate change and an inevitable return to a dystopian survivalist future.
Commenting on the collection, Skingraft designer Jonny Cota said, “For me, the fall collection is not just about survival in the harsh uncertainties of our world’s future, but rather it is about thriving and building new forms of self-expression and community once the infrastructure as-we-know-it is forced into question by our changing earth and a new opportunity is upon us.”
The collection pulls from Siberian, Mongolian, and arctic tribal cultures who have adapted, thrived and built communities in harsh climates and severe conditions for centuries.
This arctic inspiration is filtered through Skingraft’s signature nomadic streetwear lens and explores new fabrications including hand-quilted leather and mohair, shaved ponyhair, ribbed nylon-fused fleece and intricate embroideries detailed with leather and metal jewels.
