DAY SIX: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2022
BY GARY WASSNER
Theophilio is a Brooklyn born collection designed by Edvin Thompson. The brand celebrates the struggle and overcoming of disadvantages, an inspiring modus operandi. The designer wants to make people feel good, and he accomplishes that task very well.
This season, he sent miniskirts in faux alligator, jackets in snakeskin, glittering gold tank tops and pants for men and women, sequins and crystals on tops and cuffs and, well, everywhere, even the underwear. His Jamaican heritage allowed him to infuse his past collections with nostalgic elements from his childhood along with modern silhouettes and style. But this time he went all out for cool glamour. And it worked. His customer will face the world feeling fierce and ready. One to Watch!
