Referencing the socio-cultural subjects in Koshun Takami´s 'Battle Royale', Sean McGirr proposes the intimate wardrobe of a resistant youth: alive amongst the downfall of the school unit, tumbling into a cold establishment. Applying the codes of the school uniform to a masculine plane, Sean McGirr explores a refined silhouette in strong layers. The result is an intuitive look, where smart tailoring and street spirit converge. The palette carries a sci-fi subtext in tones of navy, pale grey mélange, charcoal and taupe pink. Thick ties in varying cottons cross wrists and forearms, carrying a fundamental government throughout the collection. This is personified in straight and long layers loosely buttoned or belted with cropped or strapped trousers showcasing the boy who has outgrown his uniform. Utility details appear on outerwear and trousers, with bellows pockets, heavy set zips and elastic straps giving a practical reliance. Materials waver between striking and simple, affirming a sense of nonchalance. Supple merino wools and fine silky cottons are worn with stretch fabrics. Technical polyester offers light structure to outerwear, and cotton voile creates sheer panels on shirts whilst trapper hats fasten up or down imitating text book pages.
