Designer Merrill + Forbes has been a force in the fashion world for nearly twenty years. Their start in textiles and ready made garments gave way to an in-house menswear collection in 2014, which illustrated their commitment to investigating the intersection of fashion and technology. Their 2017 Spring/Summer collection takes its cue from light and speed, as well as the way these elements combine to induce a meditative experience. In particular, these designs draw inspiration from cycling, bringing an active edge to Merrill + Forbes’ ongoing creative innovation.
