Structure, structure, structure. The five-year brand Judy and Joshua shirked the redundancy of traditional runway clichés, like accessories and detail, in favor of structure and lines. With stores in fashion havens like Hong Kong, the company has an exceptional classic vibe to put it on par with the luxury names. Bold in a subtle form, it shows that straightforward isn’t so lifeless after all.
The all-black motif streaked the runway in androgyny, the models’ short black bobs muting the faces in favor of the garments. A signature of contrast and a single bold stripe, the collection’s jackets were the object of everyone’s desire. It had everything from trench to double-breasted to varsity-styled, kept in a careful balance. Judy and Joshua drew eyes to the neck this season, with white or leather collars and colorful fur mufflers. If your eyes did happen to venture below, they were met with quilted pants atop black tights stomping ferociously in Doc Martens. With a couple vests to keep it fresh, the elemental nature of these pieces screamed, “Basic is the new black.”
Drawing inspiration from the Bible and a vision of a devout, God-fearing man, Judy and Joshua kept it simple, using layers and the reconstruction of patterns and textures to make the collection unforgettable. By mixing seemingly ordinary pieces, the beast known as extraordinary was born.
