Julius’ Paris fashion week show was dissonant noise, clashing rhythms and spasms of incredibly fast and enthusiastic strobe lighting that turned models into stop motion animations that skipped forwards in the darkness between the flashes. It wasn’t a collection intended to make you feel comfortable or to be awarded the usual adjectives implored by men’s fashion. It was, in Julius’ own words, about deformity, about “nervous pulses and hauling deep bass”. In a more literal sense that translated to black – lots if it – with lashings of stark white, both formed by layers that encased and enveloped the body.
Fans of Julius’ dark aesthetic would have been served up exactly what they desired in this feast of swathed layers, varied proportions and edgy silhouettes. And they got an aural and visual feast (or assault) to go with it. With a collection titled ‘Glitch’, it made perfect sense.
