CONCEPT

UNDER - CONSTRUCTION

BAFFLE STUDIOS MEN'S WINTER/SPRING 2018 COLLECTION TITLED: "UNDER - CONSTRUCTION" IS DESIGNED WITH THE HISTORY OF UTAH IN MIND.  UTAH IS KNOWN FOR BEING BOTH INNOVATIVE AND INDUSTRIOUS, THUS LAYING THE FRAMEWORK OF THIS PROJECT.

FOCUSING MAINLY IN MATERIAL QUALITY AND GARMENT CONSTRUCTION, WE FOUND INSPIRATION IN UTAH'S HISTORIC PAST.  COLORS AND MATERIAL TEXTURES PROVIDED THE PATH OF IDEATION FOR THE COLLECTION. SIMPLE SILHOUETTES THAT COULD BE WORN DAILY, BUT WITH AN ELEVATION IN MATERIAL QUALITY AND DESIGN PROCESS, ENABLING THE WEARER TO WITHSTAND THE ERADIC CLIMATE OF THE WEST COAST. "UNDER - CONSTRUCTION"  WAS CHOSEN BECAUSE THAT TERMS SPEAKS TO THE CURRENT STATE OF BAFFLE STUDIOS, AS WELL AS THE STATE OF FASHION IN UTAH; BOTH MAKING TRANSITIONS INTO SOMETHING NEW, OR REBUILDING THEIR FOUNDATION. 

TAKING REFERENCE PICTURES FROM UTAH'S PAST, ALEXANDER LARSEN AND SY WOOLSTENHULME CREATED PATCHES THAT ARE MEANT TO FADE WITH TIME; THUS CREATING A PRESENT-TIME MOOD BOARD, BASED ON THE PAST.  BAFFLE STUDIOS IS CONSTANTLY "UNDER - CONSTRUCTION".

 

"AFTER EXAMINING THE NEWLY UNCOVERED FOUNDATION, WE BECAME AWARE THAT IT WAS DEFECTIVE. THE INADEQUATE FOUNDATION WOULD HAVE TO BE REMOVED AND REBUILT. USING THE PROPER MATERIALS AND METHODS, A LONG LASTING STRUCTURE CAN BE BUILT."
