︎ HERON PRESTON AW18 PRESENTATION
Heron Preston is the true embodiment of an artist born of the post-internet generation. Multi-faceted and genre-bending, he has become a cultural icon in youth culture, known for his bold aesthetics. Applying the knowledge he gained from earning his B.B.A from Parsons School of Design and his San Francisco upbringing, Preston now functions as an artist, creative director, content creator, designer and DJ ; the one common thread among his impressive bodies of work is a commitment to innovation, experimentation, and unpredictability.
Heron Preston showed his third womenswear and menswear collection in Paris, titled "Public Figure,". The collection is an aesthetic riff on influencer culture and self-declared celebrity and debuts new categories for the designer including luxury handbags, footwear, and eyewear. Preston showed a collaboration with Carhartt WIP in addition to a collection with NASA that utilizes the agency's authentic 1975 logo, consisting of the word "NASA" in a unique type style that was nicknamed the "worm".
