Tourne de Transmission presented their vision for AW17 at London Collections: Men on 7 January 2017.
Graeme Gaughan — creative director of Tourne de Transmission described his creative process for this collection:
‘Considering my usual wanderlust-inspired seasonal journeys that look towards distant clothing cultures, AW17 looks inward and squarely at my home and where I grew up. It reflects on my teenage years, and tries in some way to understand how my adolescent self would react to the recent political isolation of youth, the division of ideals and the loss of cultural icons. My solace at that time was and still is music. I re-immersed myself in one of the bands of that period, Ride, and one track in particular, Nowhere, still sums up to me this frustrated inability to change a bigger situation.’
The show was styled by Harris Elliot.
