For Los Angeles-based designer Wiley Schott, the platform of fashion is one that allows for narrative.
Launching the Biloxi Design label in 2019, Schott chronicled his own personal evolution from his Mid-Western Minnesota upbringing, to his eventual transition into his professional stride working on film sets in Hollywood.
Combining a timeless blue collar aesthetic with the kind of nostalgic imagery that resonates on a universal level, the identity of Biloxi Design's post-streetwear ropes in elements of character, period, and theme with premium quality pieces that exemplified the kind of shelf life not typical of fashion.
For Schott's latest Lost Boys collection, Schott again sources familiar creative terrain tapping 90's nostalgia during what he refers to as the latchkey phenomenon. An era defined by the freedom and wonder of childhood innocence, contrasted with the subtle realization of neglect as families fell short of healthy home work life, the imagery of the Lost Boys collection is unmistakable, comforting and timeless in it's ability to connect discerning adults with the sentiment of childhood.
Resulting in a collection of garments that are vintage referenced, sun-dried and emboldened with definitive iconography, The Lost Boys Collection from Biloxi Design subtly underscores themes of commercialism, identity and isolation in a way that 90's kids can wear like a badge of pride.
Lost Boys from Biloxi Design is set to drop in three parts, the first of which arrives Saturday, December 11th at 12pm PST. As with all Biloxi Design releases, this will sell out fast.
