The Xenia Laffely Graduate collection stuns with its unconventional referencing.

Grandiosely titled 'You Won’t Have Any Other Icon Than Me and You’ll Eat Your Father,' Laffely's Graduate collection is fantastically elaborate. Blending father figures with the ceremonial dress of religious men, the garments draw inspiration from icons of pious masculinity. The fresh motifs are decidedly rebellious as they totally demolish conventions of formal menswear. The layered garments in floral prints make this collection a standout.

Laffely's chef-d'œuvre boasts woolen suits, scarves, leggings, blazers and shorts in graphic prints designed to merge themes for those bold enough to sport the designs. With an emphasis on idiosyncratic masculinity, this groundbreaking graduate project is bound to put Xenia Laffely on the map with the likes of Thom Browne and Riccardo Tisci.
