Kaminski XY AW16 Campaign
Kaminski XY Autumn Winter 2016 heralds an assured aesthetic reminiscent of the 1970’s minimalist luxe movement. An ode to subtle drama and clean lines, the collection and campaign make a striking statement, fortifying headwear as the most impactful and enduring accessory in fashion. The collection showcases Helen Kaminski’s core values of innovation, authentic design and craftsmanship. Innovative techniques merge with practical functionality, hand craft elements and age-old techniques informed are updated with the latest global design trends. Hats have evolved; taller, more masculine crowns, boxy silhouettes and refined details rule. Bags combine practical features with luxury finishes and prints meet texture. Complementing the collection of hats, bags and small accessories- now staples in the Helen Kaminski range- Helen Kaminski’s scarf collection embraces the cooler months with luxurious, voluminous capes, geometric digital prints and tactile touch-me fabrications.
World-renown fashion photographer Georges Antoni brings his signature style and visual energy to Helen Kaminski and Kaminski XY’s Autumn Winter 2016 campaigns. Dark overtones and dramatic shadows exude a sense of aloof sophistication. Strong body language and broody lighting replaces the light minimalism of Spring Summer, bringing depth and intensity; as strong and confident as it is clean and uncluttered. The minimalist mood of the campaign references the contemporary high fashion journey the brand has been travelling from collection design to retail evolution, evolving from the go-to chic headwear staple to a leader in global luxury fashion accessory design. Kaminski XY, Helen Kaminski’s collection for men, showcases a range of contemporary men’s styles worn by Sam Muir; model and music producer who encompasses all that is the Kaminski man. Strong, confident, and multi-faceted.
