The collection included blacked-out wood headwear, oversized layerings, and crinkled fabrics. This was Green’s first time showing at the “MAN” fashion show which introduces new talent to the fashion industry and media.


Day one also included the Topman collection debut. This was a more traditional and appealing line. A winter white palette with shades of orange and red, with loose fitting trouser, double pleats, and sock stuffed combat-boots.

The presentation included tailored pieces with oversized jackets, brass belt buckles, low crotched pants, and platform wedges.
