Necessity Sense SS18 Recap By Tommy Ton

Necessity Sense is the in-house label of Ne.Sense, aiming to impact beyond garments by storytelling an unique perspective on unspoken cultural issues

With Necessity Sense’s upcoming SS18 collection, we have collaborated with Capsule and CFDA in creating our first debut presentation in NYC. SS18 is titled “Pressured Paradise” and is an exploration towards the interesting social pressure and sexuality in Thailand – the epicenter of sex tourism. We continue our aesthetics of slightly boxy and cropped tops in pairing with variety of wide trousers; however, we have explored into a variety of new techniques, color ranges, and fabrications we have never done before. The pivotal part of the collection is our introduction to pure silks and printed silks by the same factory as Louis Vuitton , and silk-linen blend fabrications by Chanels’ mills. Here is an early preview of the backstage images of all our 12 models shot by Tommy Ton.
