William Richard Green has been celebrated here many times – mostly for the british Working Class-Proletarity of his designs.
Similarly disillusioned as the youth in the English industrial cities is his Spring/Summer 2013 collection: colors play virtually no role, Green sets on black, gray and white.
As earlier in the Fall/Winter collection, there are large dots, layering, long jackets, t-shirts, and shirts. Newly listed are wide stripes. The extra-long shirts that are worn under a shorter jacket reminiscent to the devout Muslims who come straight from the mosque. This is also part of British culture now, so William Richard Green takes it over deliberately. His collection is called “Home Is Where The Heart Is”, which of course sounds like a terrible fashion-university graduation collection.
While Green still combined white Reebok running shoes with his outfits in his last collection, he now chose classic hard-coart football shoes. Another reminiscence to the often quoted by him and dearly beloved by us hooligan culture.
