SS19 Collection Details
Brandon Maxwell’s Spring Summer 2019 collection was a fusion of color, symmetry and meticulous construction. Warm reds and pinks came together with bright yellows and minty greens to create the perfect summer color palette. The collection consisted of light wool crepes and shiori knits that contrasted with embellished jacquards and liquid satins.
Lizards made multiple appearances this season: embroidered intricately on red jacquard and printed onto fine silk scarves, the lizards were created by Texas-based artist Jules Buck Jones. The new “B” logo, designed by Alec Tear, also made its bold debut, emblazoned onto golden bracelets, earrings, and belts. Each look contained the perfect balance between flow and structure, creating effortless glamour throughout the entire collection.
Clean lines and concise structure brought the garments together, whereas distinct accessories transformed the clothing into glamorous outfits. The mixture of contrasting colors gave life to red wool crepe coats and rose hammered satin pieces. However, the contrasting colors didn't stop there: white denim overalls were given a touch of dimension thanks to a dark-colored seam. Poplin shirting button down dresses and faille dresses served as the perfect garments for daytime, whereas prismatex gazaar gowns and lizard jacquard dresses were best kept for evening occasions.
The accessories for SS19 was nothing short of showstopping. Printed silk scarves were carefully tied around the handles of lucite champagne bags or hat boxes, which contained Brandon Maxwell x Gigi Burris cowboy hats. Brandon collaborated with New York-based milliner Gigi Burris to create a modern, stylized cowboy hat, in various colorways. The hat was inspired by the red cowboy hat Brandon's grandmother loved to wear.
SS19 was the first season the brand introduced shoes. Heeled sandles and boots were created in various colors that walked the runway. Both styles were created in candy-color suede tones that incorporated braided fabric with a touch of gold.
