Inspired by a period in the designer – Jason Samuel’s life, Jason Porshe’s resort 2016 capsule collection sees a similar connection with time, allowing the designer to express himself in line with the Greek words ‘Kairos’ – meaning the right or opportune moment and ‘Chronos’ – a chronological or sequential time, both signifying a time lapse and a moment of indeterminate time in which everything happens, giving birth to the collection’s title “Kairos & Chronos”.
First, his womenswear collection Chronos, which is limited to just two colors sees the designer express his emotions & how uneasy it has been for him to control them. Choronos however is much more emotional for me, it’s deeper & much more expressive of how unstable my mind could be sometimes.
I used to be an emotionally tormented artist but then I turned my nemesis into wearable ‘Art’ & it felt ‘Good’.
For Kairos, Jason tells a story of a time in his life when all he desired it to, be a able to build his life & career. A time when all that matters to him is to be something he created with his own mind.
Kairos is created for the men with goals, aspirations & dreams.
“I Feel that a man should dress to impress, and dress how he wants to be addressed.
Ambitious is the new sexy,I feel that a man should dress to match his dreams there’s a boost of confidence that comes with seeing a gentle man in a suit’.”
