Politics and style clash to weave a deliberate, sartorial statement in all of designer Kerby Jean-Raymond’s Pyer Moss collections. The latest offering is an semi-ode to his late immigrant father and the excessive amount of clothing and jewelry he adorned during his lifetime. From relaxed trousers to track pants to knits, either mock or turtlenecks, to classic leather outerwear, Kerby describes his inspiration in a new New York Times feature recalling “When Jean-Claude Jean-Raymond would take Kerby and his stepbrother to a store called Dr. Jay’s to buy new clothes for school, Kerby always ran to the back. “My stepbrother would head for Phat Farm, FUBU, those sections, and I would look for anything that was made in Italy,” he said. “There wasn’t much to pick from. That kind of stuff they kept behind the counter.” View our favorite selects from the collection below and read the NY Times article by clicking HERE.
