All of you are already familiar with the PRPS insane jeans and now, for the second season, they have launched a women’s collection,as well. Needless o say that every single piece from this new F/W ’17 collection is totally obsessive and addictive. It’s going to be though as hell to choose one single item – can we please have one of each, PRPS! 😉
Donwan Harrell, designer and founder of PRPS, was inspired this season to create a women’s collection that provides the wearer with an effortless dressing experience. The collection stays true to the core of the brand, exploring vintage applicational washes while
offering on-trend denim and sportswear styles.
The second season of the women’s line is “made of trending silhouettes which we have characterized with our own unique methods and personal stamp,” said Harrell. The vintage Americana aesthetic of the brand remains solidly recognizable with a few modern twists to create a strong collection for the fall 2017 season.
Beyond the denims, Harrell designed several pieces that serve as complete outfits to create
what he calls “one-stop dressing.” A skinny denim overall with a short bib and uneven hem is offered in both a black and a blue wash. Two oversized boyfriend denim jackets, also offered in blue and black washes, were designed to be long enough to wear alone as a dress. A denim jumpsuit in a salt and pepper wash and a mandarin collar with heavy distressing is a striking addition to the collection. Finishing out the one-stop dressing motif, a denim skirt and chambray top that have been made separately, and then sewn together, create a complete wearable look.
The “love note” vignette consists of a denim jean, skirt, and knit pullover sweater inspired by love notes passed in school. The emotions are exaggerated to translate onto the clothing with stylized doodles and hearts. Several pieces with paint splatter add pops of purple, pink, and white to the collection.
A cropped denim jacket and high rise straight jean are bleached, then sprayed and splattered with different colored paint.
A patchwork anorak jacket is cut apart, washed separately to achieve different color variations, and sewn back together by hand.
PRPS has always been known for it’s hand-done elements and this collection is no exception.
