Collection – SS18

Light and vibrant, Second St.’s summer 2018 collection engages feminine forms and ventures into designs that create unique integrations using classic shirting elements. This comes to play in details such as sleeves that tie around the waist, and asymettrical button-down dresses. Pieces employ knotting, braiding and drawstrings to create versatility, allowing them to be worn in various ways. In a frisky touch, Second ST.'s geometrical monster mascots are printed on the cuffs of this season's classic shirts. The summer palette colouring this collection is fresh and crisp, combining green, red, blue and white in an assortment of stripes and solids for her, him and them.

About
Second ST was conceived in 2nd St, Alphabet City, NYC, where both Sarah Hermez and Tracy Moussi lived while attending Parsons the New School for Design. Disillusioned with the fiercely consumer-driven nature of the fashion world, they set out to create an alternative path through which the production of urban and dynamic clothing could help foster the talent of budding designers. Sarah and Tracy devised a plan to support free creative education in a partnership with Creative Space Beirut, a non profit school for fashion design. Partnering with George Rouhana, Second ST, a socially conscious brand with a playful take on the classic shirt, was brought to life in Beirut.
