This season, Designer Hiroaki Sueyasu presented his SS21 collection “IDOL” for KIDILL at Digital Paris Fashion Week Mens, once again incorporating the spirit of youth culture into his designs.
For SS21 KIDILL are presenting four different collaborations, each interesting on its own:
American graphic artist Winston Smith
Known as a “Surrealist Punk Artist”, he has worked for punk legends such as Dead Kennedys and Green Day. His artwork depicts anti-establishment attitudes and contradictions in modern society. It has given him international recognition since the 80’s, during the punk movement. Winston has designed an exclusive logo, and KIDILL has carefully selected designs from his archives for their SS21 collaboration collection.
In 1981, Smith’s political and shocking piece “IDOL” appeared on the Dead Kennedy’s album “IN GOD WE TRUST, INC.” The designer has been a big fan since then, which led to this season’s collaboration.
Iconic, quality workwear-inspired clothing brand Dickies,
The designer added this collaboration in order to incorporate classic American elements into his designs. This includes two trousers styles in four colour variations and a jacket in three colour variations. The idea is to integrate punk culture elements into Dickies clothes.
A continued collaboration from last season is with Japanese denim brand EDWIN. The brand has been producing high-quality denim, specialising in traditional craftsmanship and in the expertise of the sewing techniques, recently building a sewage treatment facility in its factory in order to reduce as much as possible the impact of draining indigo dyes, making EDWIN Japan’s leading denim manufacturer that continues to produce high quality products while minimising the impact to the environment.
Another ongoing collaboration is with Japanese knit brand Rurumu, specialising in knitwear, jumpers and cardigans, adding a girly touch to the collection.
