Parisian-based brand Wanda Nylon is fashion-forward rainwear made by duo Peter Hornstein and stylist Johanna Senyk. Specializing in using eco-friendly materials such as vinyl, PU and PVC, the ready-to-wear line looks good on the body and does good for the environment too. Looking like a collection that comes straight out of the movie Blade Runner, the label serves as an answer to the void of sartorial defined options available for wet-weather.
Wanda Nylon’s Fall 2015 menswear lookbook delivered. Starting out with the infamous PVC, a hooded bomber with large flap pockets was paired with a a PVC hat. However, a new type of fabric was shown: quilting. Shades of purples and teals consisted of quilted details, excellent for warm weather. Jackets and coats also utilitarian-like pockets- a nod a military-like trend. It was sportswear at it’s finest. Trench coats, the staple of Wanda Nylon, were shown in solid hues. And then came a new introduction: fur, which was seen in the making of a bomber, vest and sweatpant silhouette.
Wanda Nylon has truly taken their rainwear and transformed it into an avant-garde collection for men. Nothing short of cutting edge, cold and rainy [and non-rainy] days just become a reason to show off outerwear and separates with adventurous and eye-catching options.
