Heron Preston continues to redefine streetwear. Preston set the bar high with his 2018 show, which highlighted a unique collaboration with NASA and Nike Vision that brought satellite images and speed-racer sunglasses. Rooted in his workwear-inspired ready-to-wear-looks, Preston has continued to expand and cater his brand towards a young and diverse demographic for Heron Preston SS20.

This show provides a glimpse into Preston’s evolving and growing vision. Preston replaced his fascination with utilitywear and graphics of the Australian outback with tailored suits and reproduced paintings. Bringing in his collaboration with Dattner Architects, the architecture firm behind the Spring Street Salt Shed in New York (the venue for Preston’s first fashion week presentation in 2016), Preston introduced tailoring and recycled polyester to his streetwear-inspired collection. Preston opens the collection with a white, Tyvek-tailored suit made out of 3-D quilted triangles and foam-filled linings. Moreover, Preston’s collaboration with Brooklyn-based artist Robert Nava is illuminated in reused angel paintings and graffiti prints. Preston continues to push the limit with four waterproof recycled Gore-Tex looks and a 35-piece collab with Sami Miro Vintage, entitled “Natural Disaster.”

The Been Trill alum brings street and fashion together as he captures the high energy of New York. The turbulent speed of NYC streets is recreated with a blurry, zoomed-in photo of a yellow taxi cab, alongside bombers and field jackets in nylon of his signature tangerine shade. Levi's also made its way into Preston’s bold collaborations with misplaced pockets, belt loops, and buttons, for a piece entitled “Mistakes are OK.” Even hi-tech water sports are packed into the looks with parachute-string shorts, a gray anorak and blue wavy spray prints mirroring an underwater camouflage. The collection remarkably, yet somewhat chaotically, brings Preston’s vision of the Concrete Jungle to life.
