Metaphor, the luxury street-wear capsule collection by Republic, explored the evolution of symbolism from a form of basic communication, to that of self-representation and anarchic expression. Much like the clothes that played on the balance between past construction and present deconstruction on a palette of subtle creams, tones of ivory, whites and faded blacks, juxtaposed with fluorescent neon shades like pinks, oranges and electric greens, challenged the contrasting idea of how the same symbol can be both favourable for one culture and baneful for another.

Neon shirts paired with iridescent jackets, long coats, vests and stripes on single toned suits added a pop of colour to sophisticated menswear sprucing up the runway looks.
