The S/S19 collection of Toronto-based designers WIL Studios, titled “Ball Boy,” pulls reference from Country Club culture and its associated sports. But, by using oversized fits and an excess of colour, the designers have firmly separated themselves from the stuffy, highbrow worldview upheld by the members of the golf or tennis club. Their editorial uses a glaring simulation of a golf course to recontextualize the game, allowing the models to fit in, while simultaneously demystifying the elitist nature of the game.
