Death To Tennis Fall 2018 Menswear...Fashionweekly..On Fow24news.com

 Expect the unexpected. That was the preshow atmosphere at Death To Tennis, already a curious name. Backstage, designers Vincent Oshin and William Watson spoke cryptically of a “style war” they were about to launch....
So when, at show’s start, one front-rower lit up and filled the room with a certain unmistakable scent, the rest of us assumed it was part of the program, an antiauthoritarian statement on the part of the label, or perhaps a show of support for states flouting federal law. (It wasn’t, and security soon descended.)
 Now back to that style war. The designers explained they were reacting to their last effort, which they now deem too streetwear. This time around they wanted to build out a robust, elevated, “neoclassical” collection. Which they did, for the most part, if you removed some extraneous elements like a bride with a bandaged head, followed by a kind of wounded warrior, helped down the runway by two medics in all white.

Cut out those casualties and you had a solid men’s outing that spanned generous denim and corduroy basics to subtle plaids and sophisticated (though not formal) suiting, plus a foray into women’s. That it succeeded, for the most part, was testament to a fantastic dark floral jacquard that ultimately carried the show. It appeared throughout, and thankfully so, on sweats and bombers and one thick-pile topcoat. At times it was paired with a darker, iridescent jacquard, making it seem as though lush fabrications are the real revolution at Death To Tennis.
