So while I was working very hard, I had a quick look at some boys modelling.
and took some shitty notes from style.com (apoligies)
! Here are some of my favourite collections from this season !
(I actually think there were more that I didnt like, but anyway...)
The over-sized, all-covering outerwear with the sportswear detailing is what defines Alexander Wangs Menswear collections.
Kinda spacey, all very wearable.
I fucking love everything she does.
This collection is serene and spiritual but also powerful
and her models deemed 'Punk Priests'
If you like Patti Smith and Nick Cave then you like Ann.
Essential / Austerious
Technical fabric and treatments- 'Fashion for tomorrow'
This is a love letter to the USA in form of fashion.
With clear sports references, yet ''more chic/ couture-ish''
Experimenting with new cuts, collarless and lapelless garments, depth of fabrication (cashmere, velvet, taffeta, leather)
The images used are photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe.
A parody of traditional menswear- less jokiness, more masculinity.
Hats Featured are by Milliner Stephen Jones
(who is featured in iD Fashion Week this coming March,whoop)
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
This collection had a vintage feel with sharp bits of tailoring- it featured half shirts,skirts and jackets etc.
It also featured models stripping
I wish I was there
The models were paired and posed- 'man and boy'
This is one of my favourite collections of the season- the whole asthetic of the installation- the models amongst the rubbish bags is excellent. Out with the Old and in with the new.
There is a whole lot going on here and I like it all. especially Josh (top left)
Here we have a creative recycling of ex-clothes... giving life to the dead (eg the duffel fur, not featured here)
Funnily enough these looks are both from the same collection, I love the apocalyptic biker in his recycled poncho--its totally the odd one out in this whole collection-- which isnt surprising.
A-line silhouettes and over-size sleeves give this collection a powerful and military feel... with the help of the giant boots throughout of course.
''Plinth to Swagger'' (R.O)
Umit has a fasination with closed male societies (seen in past collections)
This was an 'Art made Night' - A tribe of Malinese artists... masked backstage and onstage, these were men closed of from the outside world.
There were many stand-alone pieces among this collection...
High with a touch of low/ polar opposites.
A big bunch of (faux) bearded men.
There was a Scottish thing coming through this collection.
'Unhinged but Bold'
I love Yohji.
