The AM CREW collaborates with MANINTOWN for the second edition of a successful collaboration presented during Milan Fashion Week in January. The second collection, called “Poison City”, and created by Vlatko Dukic e Signe Christoffen, takes inspiration from the city of Hong Kong, where the brand is based, interpreted as the city of poison in the ‘80s, when corruption and drugs arose, like in the sci-fi movie Blade Runner, in a confused environment where rock’ n’ roll music was a form of rebellion. The collection is also an homage Justin Gossman, super model and musician, characterized by a unique sense of style and charismatic personality. The AM CREW man is a modern Lord Byron, with a flamboyant aesthetic remixed in a contemporary way, with subtle grunge and Victorian accents. He is a night lover- the central element of the brand’s creation- who strolls around the Asian city, between humidity and shadows, but always with style. A roster of intriguing people will be the main characters of the new advertising campaign: the super models Niall Underwood, Ivan Claudiu and Sasha Panika.
