Lee Roach on His Sporty, Minimal Spring 2015 Collection

Technical sports gear and outerwear that questions "the notion of formality."

Lee Roach showed a typically minimalist collection of khaki, navy and white garments for Spring 2015. The clothes were tailored close to the body, creating a sharp silhouette. After the show, Roach told us what inspired this collection, and how he keeps his work fresh and interesting.

What was the inspiration behind the collection?
"The collection explores urban existence and protection through clothing beyond the idea of performance and as protection from an urban environment."

What are the key fabrics here?
"Traditional menswear summer fabrics: Italian khaki, lightweight linen, navy double-faced linen, and Japanese olive cotton are re-interpreted as a modern urban uniform. I used tech jersey and nylon to create modern technical sportswear."

What's the biggest difference between this collection and your previous work?
"This season sees the introduction of new silhouettes and sportswear, all of which continue to question the notion of formality. Long sleeve T-shirts and strap vests feature vinyl graphics in orange, black, and white inspired by the compositions of military and sport uniforms."
