The Olaf Hussein FW16 lookbook escapes the cold by taking us on a trip to the south of America, or more specifically, to Paris, Texas. This cinematic masterpiece from 1984, directed by Wim Wenders and shot by Robby Müller, forms the main inspiration for this season.
The collection takes its cues from the tougher aesthetics of the true Americana that lies at the center of the movie. From car culture, to wide-open vacant spaces and long winding roads. It’s a feeling that returns in the collection through faded colors, classic heavyweight cotton utilized inside-out and durable fabrics such as ripstop.
With the “Rusty Red” baseball cap, the collection even makes a direct reference to Paris, Texas’ main character, Travis Henderson.
OLAF HUSSEIN continues to evolve the expressions of its brand, this season through the side-mirror inspired title “Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear” and featured license plate emblem “0L4F-0H.”
To capture the collection, the brand continued its on-going collaboration with Amsterdam-based photographer Carlijn Jacobs. Underneath you can find the full lookbook and links to the Facebookpage and website of Olaf Hussein.
