Harvey Nichols presented Haculla X Trapstar Redline, an exclusive collection designed in collaboration between British cult streetwear label Trapstar and New York artist Harif Guzman, under his alter ego ‘Haculla’.
The AW15 collection consists of 12 looks featuring iconic styles from Trapstar’s Redline; embellished with printed and embroidered street art from Harif Guzman.
Guests included Tinie Tempah, Tichy, Adrien Sauvage, Bip Ling, Chris Robshaw & Camilla Kerslake, Jess Plummer, Lara Mullen, Harriet Verney, Max Roger, Sean Frank amongst others.
The presentation took place at the iconic Victorian landmark The College, the former location of the renowned art school, Central Saint Martins. Held in the spectacular spherical hall, the gothic architecture lent itself to the presentation which was inspired by the American thriller, ‘Eyes Wide Shut’.
The gothic hall was filled with the haunting sounds from music artist Suicide, who created an exclusive track entitled, Cheree. The score is a mash-up of dourest tones, inspired by Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Models entered the hall led by the master of ceremony, Miles Langford; the heavily inked English model, before stepping out onto a crimson carpet draped in cloaks, which were later removed to reveal the iconic styles from the collection.
Stand out pieces from included a tattoo sleeve bomber jacket, a utility reversible coat and printed denim with bucket hats and Trapstar’s signature umbrella and bowler hat, all set in a monochrome palette and featuring the red shock line.
Guests sipped on Chivas Regal whisky sours, Beefeater Gin G&Ts, Warsteiner beer and Harvey Nichols Champagne and enjoyed special performances from DJ Motive, CWD and Bip Ling.
The collection will be available exclusively in all Harvey Nichols stores and online at harveynichols.com from June 2015.
