The wings+horns Spring/Summer 2015 collection — Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. — draws inspiration from early 20th century U.S. military academy football teams. A variety of details including articulated sleeves, underarm gussets, hidden snaps and knee darts are utilized to combine the ease of movement found in athletic and military gear with a decidedly non-technical appearance.
A concept with origins in the military, “Slow is smooth, smooth is fast“ is the principle of efficient precision. It is a belief that it’s better to take your time to do something right than rush and make a fatal error. Grounded in training, it is also about being aware of mistakes and taking the time to correct them. There is a difference between full speed and rushing, and full speed is often slower than we think.
