FRANKLIN EUGENE SUNLIT
MILAN FASHION WEEK MEN'S SPRING/SUMMER 2018
This Milan, Italy, June 20, 2017
Franklin Eugene’s solar array of chic, classic, comfortable clothing shined like the bright morning star that inspired it. Something about the synergy between the light and airy semi-sheer chiffons, silks, and mesh fabrics’ convergence with classic menswear textiles put us at ease straight away. The models seemed to really get caught up in the moment as well with each one letting those unique aspects of the best part of his inner spirit brighten up the room like the rays of sun light that inspired the FRANKLIN EUGENE SUNLIT COLLECTION. We were smitten right away by the see through golden sun mesh that only Franklin Eugene could infuse in to menswear in way that made it look even cooler than it must feel to wear. The Ibiza inspired white silhouettes are a fantastic fusion of comfort and style. As the bright white portion of the presentation transitioned to bronze colored installations we were pleasantly surprised at how the interplay between the different fabric textures and finishes increased our eagerness to see each successive offering in the range. The bronze installments added depth followed by yellow pieces that brought lightness to the entire collection. While the FRANKLIN EUGENE GLOBAL AMERICAN DESIGN COMPANY keeps raising the bar and makes it all look and feel easy, we know that Franklin Eugene’s solar-powered sartorial sensation required a lot of dedication and effort to design, stitch, and present. We will be front and center at the next presentation.
