For Spring/Summer 2024, WINNIE New York served up a collection of polished silhouettes with urban appeal, titled â€œSehnsucht.â€ Nigerian designer Idris Balogun, who launched the label in 2018, reenvisioned traditional Savile Row tailoring to produce a menswear line defined by fluidity.
Across the range, a strong color palette lends a youthful aesthetic to a selection of formalwear separates. Among them, a collared button-up jacket arrives with red and white stripes; a double-breasted blazer shines in bright teal, and a salmon-hued trench falls just below the knee. Modelsâ€™ hair, in many instances, is saturated in tonal dye, further fueling the collectionâ€™s electric â€”and sometimes punkish â€” agenda.
Contrasting the colorful ensembles, a plethora of dark designs pump a subdued cadence into the range. Deep-blue denim complements suiting in gray and black, while straight-cut trousers and coats in neutral tones form the essentials in the WINNIE New York closet. Pairing plays a key role in this collection, with shorts oftentimes becoming the casual summertime companion to shirts and ties.
Overall, the brandâ€™s latest collection further cements Balogunâ€™s vision of future-minded menswear, with multicultural influences and sartorial precision.
