GRIMEY FALL WINTER 2019
This season we opted for a more coordinated collection that offers more connection between capsules than the previous ones. With lines different from one another yet parallel, we focused everything on one nuclear concept of inspiration. We like to believe, and GRIMEY FW19 is an ode to the cosmic multiculturalism and all the mysteries that space generates for us. From a distance we continue thinking that Space is The Place, like the admirable Sun-Ra used to say. In simplified terms, our muse for this collection lies in that phrase. Following the norm at GRIMEY, there’s a lot of information in each garment we design and we love publicizing that we’re engineers, astronomers and steadfast investigators...from the hood to the cosmos. The collection varies a lot between tones and colors, opting for a broader spectrum than times past. From the darker and duller to the most vibrant, we pass through pastels and meet all the way to fluorescents. Regarding the diversity of fabrics, we reintroduce new references to our classics. Cotton, polyester, polar fleece, Sherpa, corduroy, synthetic leather, reflective and metallic fabrics
Paying homage to the magazine Ramparts, referenced for their political ideas and literature published between 1962 and 1975. Their content is very rooted in who we are and our present way of thinking. Our intention is to send a vital message that speaks to the manipulation we continue living through after so many years, with even more aggression than in the past. In this capsule we have full print reversible jackets, embroidery, cargo pants, cotton sweaters with adjustable closures at the waistline and endless messages making reference to the conspiracies of the elite and the revolution. The most feminine aspects have streetstyle prints designed for going out, expressed through sporty fabrics like satin polyester and cotton, supported by embroidery and gold vinyl’s that deliver lots of glamour to the capsule.
ENGINEERING OF THE GODS
Ra, Akhenaton, Isis, Sekhment, Orion...Engineering of the Gods. Complex embroidery, encrypted messages, energetic colors and a blend of animal prints. Cotton garments with lots of details in the stitching, pullovers and tracksuits made of elastic polyamide, long sleeve shirts, corduroy sweat suits with backpack and matching fanny pack that share the same material. We have a unisex coverall and overall, lots of zippers, openings, embroidery, patches and very technical fit. Skirts, culottes, bodysuits and a variety of tops that share the graphics and color spectrum of the male designs. It’s the collection with the most variation in fabric and details…”I was one. I turned myself into three.
Our basics collection this season isn’t that basic, with extensive colors and a variety of accessories. Fluorescent and reflective details for chest packs, cross body bags, beanies and bucket hats with bold color blends on sweaters, shirts and hats. Our flying saucer.
We keep playing hard. One of our rare gems of this collection is our leather chupa “Looter Cult.” Inspired by the late 90’s and early 2000’s, the patching, colors and detailing is 100% Grimey. It’s our classic message with a twist. To complete the capsule we have a single white cotton sweat suit with a fluorescent green full print, a black hoodie with the same print in violet and fluorescent green and black shirts. This time our accessories are very special, with a printed durag and a ski mask that matches the jacket. A pure spectacle.
Burning and Looting.
The mysterious vibe we’re harnessing accelerates with this group of garments. We’ve combined our vision of the rebirth of the early 2000’s in the graphics with very interesting winter garments (fleece liners in tops and pants, Sherpa jackets, ski jackets and windbreakers…) using plain bold colors and prints. Details include rubber patches and stoppers on most garments. Two full print polyamide tracksuits, embroidered cotton sweaters with detailing and contrasting materials, nylon snapbacks, high neck sweaters with fleece sleeves...one extension of the collection where we give a futuristic look without losing our essence. It’s the most sporty women’s collection due to the mix of fabrics, colors and shapes. Cotton and mixed polyamide with fluorescent prints. Cropped tops and oversized sweaters. Mini puff jackets with details outside the norm like the zipper and pull. We introduce a padded kimono and pant with a winter esthetic. Don’t be afraid it’s not the end.
We still haven’t accomplished our mission, we keep burning up the galaxy. Soft, silky tracksuits with fluorescent and metallic detailing, windbreakers to go fix the ship’s hull if necessary, patchworked cotton garments and the most lunar sweat suit in silver fabric with a matching bucket hat. All this is a futuristic work is the movement in preparation for landing on the Black Planet.
SIGHTING IN VOSTOK
If your intention is to investigate sightings you must always be prepared to confront low temperatures. We have the feeling we’ll discover something near that lake in the Antarctica...corduroy jackets, puffer jackets, fleece lining, rubber patches, Sherpa jackets, gloves...and a few other surprises. This winter we forget about the cold to focus on the findings of intelligent life on other planets. In the female silhouette we continue betting on cotton and fleece sweat suits but with a different set of graphics and fit. Crop tops are introduced with the thought of overlapping garments. In addition a puff in the shape of a globe. The entire collection has rubber detailing, reflective tape and stoppers. Never-ending.
GRMY x LX
We trip off LX and LX trips of Grimey. It was only a matter of time before we did a collaboration...We have an elegant sweat suit made of poly-ristop, with printed liners and a logo we designed for the occasion placed on a rubber stamp. A cone in a ski mask...for cold nights and a synthetic leather fanny pack.
