So it is interesting to see the designer leave his familiar region and move on to explore another culture, this one not so much remote in region as remote in time. An interest in Classical Greece seems natural for a man with an interest in strong graphic design (and, it bears noting, he is Macedonian). So for his Spring/Summer '15 collection at London Collections: Men, strong, heavy imagery from Greek vases and friezes were woven into pieces that sported designs suggesting architectural details of Trojan temples. Jewelry incorporated gold coins or large reliefs of classical busts, brims of hats became Corinthian helmets, platform shoes were grafted onto Greek sandals, and caps sported gold wings like Hermes, the messenger of the gods. Pejoski usually works in a very limited color palette (neutrals like black, white, tan) but it seemed only natural to incorporate, delightfully so, the bright terra cotta orange of red figure pottery from Athens that was created between the beginning of the sixth and the end of the fourth centuries B.C.E.
I love how the breastplate is not meant to be armor, nor is it a take on Issey Miyake's breastplate (a sleek, stylized female plate in automotive acrylic with a peplum!): it is white, and clearly meant to be the white marble torso of a statue!
