Marking Los Angeles brand Sav Noir’s official foray into luxury fashion, their AW ’15 presentation during LAFW introduced a monochromatic uniform for the “sophisticated rebel”—a look that elevated SN’s streetwear roots with the help of prized french mill Malhia Kent, known for once providing tweed to the legendary Coco Chanel.
Inspired by the euro-goth scene of the ’80s, SN’s alt-aesthetic pulls from the grit and grime of the Underground, infusing that edge with luxe fabrics like baby lamb skin and pure silk. This dynamic energy strung throughout SN’s AW ’15 campaign this season, starring androgynous model Paul Mitchell Rabell in a series of black-and-white shots that showcase updated classics from a lamb moto jacket to an oversized tweed poncho.
We went behind-the-scenes of SN’s downtown LA show earlier this month, featuring bi-coastal model Sarah Sarina and organized by Shaun Ross, Roman Sipé and designer Edwin Haynes. See exclusive photos, below, and indulge in a collection that genuinely transcends group, gender and personality.
