Said Once Coco Chanel, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman”. So do they remember Man!! I belong to those theorists who believe in the power of perfect attire and advocate that very first impression is formed by the way you have dressed yourself. Said that, season after season, hundreds of designers come up with the collection that we later see people wearing. Men’s Spring Summer Fashion Weeks are almost over (considering main – London, Milan and Paris weeks) and I pretty much loved the concepts that some of the designers came up with. But It’s hard to say which one of them is my favourite. SO, I am going to share with you the 11 looks that I liked most and I WOULD TOTALLY WEAR THESE TOTAL LOOKS!!
Vivienne Westwood Created a look that has two layered top, shirt in white silk shirt layered by cross buttoned grey shirt with raw finishing. The look was finished with navy blue trouser and black sandals making it perfect for the end of Indian Summer .
The Aw 14 collection is inspired by the working men: Dockers, miners, engineers, steel workers and all the male members of their families who come along to earn living.
The knitwear revolution at sibling continues. The bold stripes are added to hand knit cable stitched cardigan and jumpers. Suits get new life with shorts. Blazer is hand crocheted with flower and belted versions are pulled together. Graphic sweatshirts are hand knitted.
SIBLING focuses on coal black (tarmac, coal and oil), grey and berry and arsenic shades. Hand crafted denim and multi layered knit form a perfect pair of work wear with a unique blend of SIBLING dynamics. Softness in work wear is reflected with the hand work tradition at SIBLING.
“We were inspired by the photography of John Bulmer who documented Manchester, the Potteries and the Black Country throughout the 1960s. We wanted to capture the spirit of the working man showing his love, not with shop-bought trinkets, but by day after day of back-breaking, laborious graft to support his family.” said SIBLING Joe Bates, Sid Bryan and Cozette McCreery.
Here is the entire collection. Continue reading
