The idea for the collaboration between SPIDI and fashion brand ALYX was born from designer Matthew Williams’ desire to make motorcycle jackets, pants, and other pieces in the highest quality. Instead of producing yet another photocopy of a motorcycle jacket, Matthew turned to an authentic motorcycle leathers company.
The collection features leather motorcycle jackets and pants in black and white paired with bright racing color accents. The jackets are form fitting and lift the rib cage to align the posture. They have been adapted from a traditional moto jacket, stripping it of its sponsorship logos and intense padding. These motorcycle themes are continued through the collection, with padded kidney inserts, perforated leather, and wrap around pockets found in feminine dresses and tailored suiting pieces. XPD riding shoes have been transformed into street-friendly boots, along with rain shoe covers that can slip over the classic ALYX heel.
These vibrant pieces come to life against the backdrop of an empty bull ring in Ibiza – a vacant arena on a destination island. The cold, dusty cement against the vivid primary colors and glittering diamonte straps. The sun setting and a new beginning. You fuck with the bull, you get the horns.
ALYX X SPIDI pre-spring collection will be soon available in high-fashion shops around the world.
