Illionaire The Stranger
Illionaire rekindles the old school notion that to be cool is to be ‘ill’. How appropriate. Illionaire is re-vamping your parent’s wardrobe. Remaking old-school clothes that you wish weren’t thrown out and giving a modern twist to old school favorites.

As Billy Joel so classically put in his 1977 song “The Stranger” “We all have a face that we hide away forever, And we take them out and show ourselves when everyone has gone”
The collection represents an alias of the designer’s real life. A piece of themselves hidden to the public eye until now. A face they have longed to try on.
Expressed in rich earthy silks, neon pop and with a deep 70’s influence of psychedelic print and “stranger eyes” it can only be described in one way - Ornamental vintage party girl come neoclassicalfuturisticonceptualisman.
