One Off is a place where you are free to walk down unexplored paths, to create new alchemies, and to define a new language for contemporary fashion. An innovative ABC for style, based on unexpected fusions of casual and sportswear, and on original contaminations between active and formal wear.
For her, the One Off spring/summer 2015 collection undergoes a detailed re-mapping of the territories between day and night, femininity and sportswear, seeking out original stylistic combinations to create shapes that are both beautiful and practical.
Well-delineated cubic volumes are a key feature for the upper body, heightened by materials with a solid hand, such as neoprene, or bonded or quilted plush. Tops and tunics become even bolder, with vivid prints: fluo brush strokes, obsessive B/W geometries or Lichtenstein-style comic strips.
Add to this the playful, partially hidden glimpses that emphasize femininity: laser-cuts, suggestive splits and backs in chiffon or georgette for T-shirts and denim vests, midi skirts in macramé lace and lots of perforated faux leather. Transparency also makes a comeback in knitwear, where we find oversized fits, large, loose weaves, lurex and fluo combinations, as well as paper-derived yarns.
Active roots are a further major theme running through the collection: from mesh sweaters to sweatshirts, to sports short and sweatpants, both reinterpreted in a mix of perforated faux leather and viscose.
Once again a play on contrasting elements is the winning formula, this time combining clearly defined volumes for the upper body, and a lower body outlined in super-skinny jeans with lots of mended holes and tears, with a marbled effect, or in satin five-pockets in bold, assertive, pop colours.
For spring/summer 2015 the Replay One Off man maps out and explores new landscapes bordering between sportswear, denim and military territories. Rethinking coordinates and balance points among active, urban and techno wear to define a clean simple collection where cool easy appeal meets strong smart severity elegance. Charting new paths in fashion to present directional shapes, materials & mixes against a backdrop of neutral and natural shades of blue, grey, sandy beige and khaki offset by hints of fluo orange and lime, petrol (blackish) green and geranium red.
These are casuals with very much of a chic twist, as in the double Tyvek® blazer with contrast sleeves or the indigo & khaki laminated linen/cotton field jacket with zip pockets. The collection also includes ultra edgy military and supertech urban looks, thanks respectively to the laminated cotton/linen parka with colour-contrast appliqué ribbon and tone-on-tone thermo taping, and to the slick trench coat in double Tyvek®.
On the knitwear front the new frontiers emerge in the form of a fresh soft-sinewy concept – particularly an innovative superlight steel weave – while shirts stay on a sleek stylish course with geometric inserts in contrast fabrics.
As for men's trousers, a keen sense of comfort sets the tone in creating a new balance among sports-, denim and urban wear. Here what make the difference are the original denim-fleece and satin-fleece fabrics on the one hand, the distinctive stretch factor for a wide range of jeans on the other. End result? Drawstring waist five-pockets in denim-fleece, otherwise a garment-dyed version in satin-fleece. Then thanks to water & energy saving ice and laser blast technologies having a low environmental impact, there are comfy chinos and jeans with a fine green soul – made possibly from recycled denim featuring the use of chemical-free textile treatments. Completing the picture are super destroyed jeans with matching thread mends, plus jeans with micro fluo spots or small bleached-out splotches.
