Los Angeles designer John Elliott, known for his cult-followed menswear and sneaker collaboration with Nike, launches a new women’s collection. Elliott shared at a preview of the collection that he could not create an extension but had to start from scratch as a woman’s body is different from a man’s. “It’s much more complicated and three-dimensional,” he laughed.
The Elliott’s woman is “not a delicate flower,” he stressed. “She’s probably cooler than my guy. She is confident and has a strong point of view.” The new collection consists of cropped nylon bombers, trenches, tons of denim and slip basics. A neon print of the casino strip in Las Vegas which Elliott snapped during a trip with his fiancée, was incorporated into the silk blouses too.
The women’s collection is set to debut next week alongside the men’s. Peep the gallery for a closer look!
