With a heavy emphasis on design, Lisa Le? Strange‘s latest collection is a curation of unique pieces that reinforce the brand’s push for being fashionable yet expressive. The resulting designs are a playful hybrid of classical forms and contemporary apparel, inspired by designer Are Bernard’s mother and her sacrifice to create an environment that would nurture his dreams.
Founder and designer Are Bernard is fairly well-known for his extensive work as a photographer and director across music and entertainment. His work, while mostly candid, is really phenomenal with artists such as Offset, Giveon, Lana Del Rey, and the late Mac Miller being amongst the many to step in front of his lens. His recent work and venture in fashion to no surprise, hold up just as well, with many of the brand’s pieces nodding to skate culture and other inspirations within his life.
Lisa Le? Strange uses many substantial details to inform the collection, such as the Skulfie? design found on the sweats or the many graphic designs found across different tees and hoodies. One noteworthy piece from the fashion label is the Strange One Jacket, it’s an outerwear item that complements the collection well. It’s been detailed with a contrasting black color with loose-like threads, but the rest of the jacket is subtle with a minimal red design. Other pieces like checkered beanies, balaclavas, paisley sweater vests, long sleeve shirts round up the expansive assemblage.
The label, only in its third collection, has amassed a sizeable audience while its creative direction brings the brand to life through different color schemes and evocative designs. Shop the brand’s latest arrivals via the Lisa Le? Strange website and keep an eye out for their forthcoming drops later this year.
