British menswear designer Alex Mullins channels the ethos of his label for his AW17 collection, playing with the idea of Sunday living and ‘merging with your surroundings’ with a laid-back, blasé frivolity.

Involving environments and surroundings into his designs is an ongoing interest of Mullins’, and the habit of capturing situations in his collections has been revisited again for this season. Alluding to variegated armchairs covered in blankets and early 90’s VHS graphics of recognisable faces wrapped over jackets, Alex Mullins is once again adding to his ever-growing patchwork of ideas.

Ultimately this season seems to have the notion of comfort at its epicentre; a celebration of unexpectedly stylish Sunday loungewear paired with functional jackets emblazon with pockets. Making use of the most comfortable of fabrics – mohair, cotton and merino – against the use of Japanese denim, this season see’s a palette of beige, tomato, magnolia, but perhaps the most distinctive element of this collection is the reoccurring pops of acidic and zesty chartreuse.
