Behind the Collection: Fashion's Collective Consciousness

, Deveaux-SS20-Resort
"The widening of fashion’s collective consciousness has been slow, but progress is being made. The runways may not yet reflect the world as it is, with its diversity of color, age, and size, but they’re more representative than at any time in the past. [Tommy] Ton’s street style photos and those of others like him have played their part in fashion’s awakening, alongside the rise of Instagram, the presence of female designers in top jobs, and the consciousness-raising of #MeToo and Time’s Up. He has an eye for “real women” with real style, not influencers in head-to-toe runway looks, and his taste runs to the minimal, though it’s not strict." - Nicole Phelps for Vogue Runway

At Deveaux, we aim to create clothing that is grounded in reality. Regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, or background, our mission is to offer timeless, utilitarian basics that eschew any popular trend. Through Tommy Ton's keen eye for street style, we seek to create a modern uniform that transcends fashion's vast landscape. Our pieces are grounded in versatility and practicality. Deveaux champions the democratization of fashion and the inclusion of everybody involved.

For our Resort 2020 collection, we continue in this mission. Effortless, modest silhouettes constitute a bulk of the collection. A two-in-one nylon trench coat features removable sleeves that transform the coat into a vest while a pantsuit cut from Japanese raw denim offers a new take on Western tailoring. Our goal isn't to influence one's personal style, but to complement it by offering unique garments that can be endlessly re-styled.
