A constant through each of his collections, Martin Keehn’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection portrays the dichotomy of authority figures and masculine archetypes. With classic American influences and tongue-in-cheek aesthetic, Keehn’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection conveys a sense of nostalgia in its Americana style. Keehn can recall the very moment that inspired the collection, while in a Seattle thrift store. A connoisseur in the realm of thrifting, he was sifting through his fifth or sixth rack and could isolate the garments that came from one man. With that, like old friends from high school, he knew this man; his story and his style. What emerged can be described as an unlikely mingling of the cast from Good Will Hunting and dancehall rockers.
This season, Martin Keehn’s use of fabrics, texture and pastel colors pays tribute to the latter quarter of the past century. Whether it be the pinhole jersey shirts, his heavy use of linen or the 70’s style slight flare to the pant leg, his collection is bound to bring on the flashbacks.
