LRS Studio is a cult NYC label directed by Mexican-born, LA-raised designer Raul Solis. His post-minimal designs incorporate a mix of organic and synthetic materials. This juxtaposition produces unforgettable looks that are as conceptual as they are wearable. In the past, Polis was as likely to work with ponyhair as high-quality plastics and vinyl. It’s nice to see in the brand’s SS16 collection that this intriguing ethos remains unchanged. Vintage motifs are paired with high-sheen, futuristic fabrics. Mohair knits are worn with shiny PVC pants that resemble spaceships imagined from the past. Results are always as enchanting and not-easy-to-forget as these shots.

Every fashion week has seen strong vinyl looks this season, but none have been quite as expertly sleazy as London’s. Christopher Kane dominated with the majority of his matte nylon dresses contrasting subtly with ruched and baggy PVC overcoats. Disheveled models in slick vinyl skirt suits sauntered down a runway perfectly located in a deserted London office building. The cavernous space provided a sterile backdrop for beyond 9-5 dressing. At Fyodor Golan, the scene was decidedly after-hours, where severe head-to-toe vinyl outfits shone holographic in the spotlights. Set atop plush pink astroturf the carnal stylings juxtaposed a sense of pleasure and pain. In contrast, the a-line vinyl pieces at Erdem and the midi PVC circle skirts at Emilio de la Morena look as if they were made for the madam.
