Israeli designer Hed Mayner’s traditional oversize silhouettes were infused with a lot more comfort this season, thanks to the use of soft recycled wools on slouchy herringbone suits, long wool skirts for men paired with flat suede boots and even cozy knitted playsuits, a mix between a garment and a blanket. “I wanted to experiment with an elongated type of silhouette, like a tube,” said Mayner, who was handed LVMH’s Karl Lagerfeld Prize in September.
WWD Critique: The collection was a dream of well-cut yet supple tailored silhouettes in earthy tones. Mayner played with gender rules by dressing his male models in long wool skirts and chic pearl earrings, but the result was all at once refined, offbeat and surprisingly wearable.
