Danish-based designer Heliot Emil showcased his newest fashion line at Copenhagen Fashion Week and the upcoming Fall/Winter 2018 collection is heavily influenced by utilitarian motifs and military apparel. Avoiding traditional nuances of green as an inherent detail to any army-inspired clothing item, Heliot Emil focuses on a black color palette and versatile fabrics. By doing so, the luxury designer sets the focus on the functionality and immediacy of military apparel.
The high-fashion ensembles of the Fall/Winter 2018 collection communicate a ready-for-combat vibe with shimmering pants, oversized bombers and an abundance of straps, metal and industrial accessories. The provocative designs have a raw quality that translates well into the underground party scene, as in previous seasons Heliot Emil has made references to "every party kid's favorite substance Ketamine."
