“NYFW: Parsons MFA Graduates: Mathew Dolan”

FantasmaNotaWild Nothing – China TownNotaFantasma



Mathew Dolan

“Matthew Dolan, might be from Sydney but his collection was undoubtedly born in the USA: “It’s an investigation into the materiality and mass-consumption of the ‘American Style’ and the means by which specific articles of clothing (jeans, denim jacket, white tee-shirt) exist as cultural signifiers,” said Matthew. Although you don’t need to mention more than “oversized denim” to get our hearts beating, Matthew’s re-purposing of existing garments such as t-shirts and jeans cut up and unraveled to create new textures and patterns is the new American classic. And with textile references dating back to the Colonial period, the collection is a much more compelling take on American History than the class you slept through in high school.”

Undeniably cool, one of my ultimate favorite graduates from this season program.
