Former Roland Mouret designer, Todd Lynn, has developed over the past two seasons (last Spring and this Fall) a study in substratal futurism, borrowing influence from two opposite sides of mankind: primeval and space-age. For Spring, he lent the popular power shoulder a prehistoric purpose with Viking-like horns. Fall saw the silhouette morph closer to caveman territory, trading in tin horns for ice age-appropriate fur pagodas. Lynn’s tailored leathers looked as aggressive as ever, perhaps for client, Miss [Janet] Jackson, who was seated (sans backup dancers) in front row. Based in starship gray’s and muted putty’s, the ominously-toned Lynn palette has never felt so aptly matched to his vision. Teetering on the brink of yesterday and tomorrow, Lynn has synthesized survival with style as his signature.
