Craig Green to return to London with next show in February
Craig Green will return to stage his next collection in London, staging an off-calendar in the week prior to the UK capital’s next runway season in February.
The show will mark the first catwalk outing by Green since before the start of the global pandemic. He last staged a catwalk show in Paris's Marais district in January 2020 during the French menswear season. Though in September 2020, Green did unveil some looks in a live broadcast inside Modes, a fashion-forward story located in Piazza Risorgimento, Milan.
“The Craig Green Autumn/Winter 2022 collection will be shown in the brand's hometown of London, week of the 7th February 2022. Further details to follow,” said the house in a terse release.
Green founded his label in 2012, straight after graduating from the MA Fashion course at Central Saint Martins in London. Today he is regarded by many as the single most original voice in menswear.
The 35-year-old designer is known for his ability to create functional clothing of couture quality, imbued with architectural ideas. His signature techniques of adding adjustable straps; wooden slats and dangling headgear into his ensembles create uniquely powerful fashion statements.
Green was named British Menswear Designer at the Fashion Awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018. Moreover, he also received the ultimate accolade of being invited as a guest designer in June 2018 to the world’s most important menswear salon, Pitti Uomo in Florence, where he staged a show deep inside the Boboli Gardens.
Pieces from Green’s cerebral collections are now in the permanent collection of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
