Earlier today, American Designer Perry Ellis unveiled its Fall/Winter 2016 collection during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Creative Director Michael Maccari introduced new iterations of classic silhouettes. Maccari drew inspiration from landscape images. Specifically, he focused on the concept of using various textures and colors to create an image which appears distorted up close, but reveals a simple, uncomplicated form from afar.
“We’ve been playing with the idea of images appearing differently in the distance than they do up close―like landscapes,” said Maccari. “When you step back, you start to get the bigger picture of shape and proportion, but when you get closer, that image is actually made up of many complicated textures and colors.”
