Dries Van Noten‘s collections, as well all know, are characterised by his use of prints, colours, fabrics and the combination of the masculine and the feminine. Layering is one aspect that is also associated with the brand’s style, which is evident in his collections, season after season. For AW 2013, tiered pieces cleverly multiplied its layering effect, in the form of long tiered skirts, dresses and skirted trousers, giving the silhouette shape and structure.

I can imagine that a unisex collection is difficult to market because although, women are open to be adventurous and be more androgynous, men are still old-fashioned when it comes to what they wear. Having said that, there are groups of men today that are happy to play with their looks; those who are confident to wear even a feminine ensemble. The great thing about Rad Hourani‘s unisex collection is that the pieces are neither masculine nor feminine. The look is modern and structured, which features wide and layered lapels in blue, white and petrol.

With the exception of two coloured sweaters – one in brown and the other in green – Jil Sander‘s menswear autumn/winter 2012 collection by Raf Simons is very monochromatic. Plenty of leather pieces such as belted coats, jackets, tops and trousers. Majority of the silhouettes are fitted and most of the looks are slick and (of course) minimal.

Rad Hourani pushes the boundaries for menswear even more for his spring/summer 2012, as men walks in gender-breaking and feminine layered looks, including dresses and skirts in black and blue, down to the accessories, which you would normally see being paraded by women.

I only tend to blog the stuff that I do or anything that I’m involved in but there are some exciting and inspiring things that are just too good, that it has to be blogged. MVIO‘s A/W 2011 collection is very exciting, the colour palette is great and it is very utilitarian. The abundance of pockets makes it very practical and who wouldn’t adore the aprons, though you would be very careful not to use it in the kitchen.
