Backstage at YMC AW13

The opening sentence of the press notes for YMC's AW13 show sounded like Fraser Moss might be one setback away from a call to The Samaritans.

"'Dead Inside' is YMC designer and founder Fraser Moss' response to modern culture"

Yet, Fraser found refuge in nostalgic memories of the '90s and his new AW13 collection is packed full of enough textured knitwear and rich autumn colour to keep anyone happy.

The beret was the symbol of the collection, representing freedom, rebellion, and an affinity for lengthy subtitled films and strong black coffee. Indeed, it is this New Wave spirit that Fraser is so taken with, and his collection is a confident realisation of that utilitarian aesthetic.
