Chris Stamp, Creative Director of LA based menswear brand STAMPD, debuted The New Soldier FW16 collection at his first NYFWM presentation Tuesday morning.
The collection’s 20 looks were presented on pedestals that rose above a dense fog that filled platform 3 at Skylight Clarkson North, designed in collaboration with Brooklyn based creative team, Snarkitecture.
The collection focused closely on classic military detailing with a palette centered on natural color while the construction started with monochromatic cues, transforming down to a washed through color palette that includes angora, shiitake, pewter, and indigo.
Stand out pieces included a grey, alpaca blend, hand woven and distressed turtleneck; reverse, washed down, terry camel travel pant with a rubbed waistband and zipped back pocket; and a quad pocket bomber featuring a removable wool lining, also seen worn as a separate in the collection.
STAMPD is among a wave of emerging designers redefining modern streetwear. The brand plans to open their first store in Los Angeles early this year.
This is STAMPD’s 8th collection.
