A graduate of the Central Saint Martins in London, Craig Green founded his brand in 2012 by bringing a new and paradoxical vision to men's fashion: protectionist, complex but playful. He proposes his first donation to the Palais Galliera with this complete and emblematic silhouette of his spring-summer 2018 collection.

Between infantile utopia and frightening dystopia, with a t-shirt that is too short, a very long zip that splits the back, and shoes made of real recovered tires, the silhouette reflects the elementary survival instinct that Craig Green's creations testify to and that the costumes he makes for the film Alien Covenant (Ridley Scott, 2017) confirm. Only a large carnation, brazenly located on the left buttock, reveals the man's flesh, as an access to his vulnerability.
