menswear collection based on blindness by KEIKO KIDA

This collection got my attention, not because of the men in skirts but the actual idea of it. Keiko Kida, an MA graduate from London College of Fashion created a menswear collection based on blindness. Not only it is conceptual but the pieces are also wearable and stylish. It includes wide-legged trousers, cropped jacket, asymmetrical coat with a funnel sleeve and an interesting pair of hybrid shoes.

maxi skirts + sweater skirts @ J.W. ANDERSON A/W 2011

My fascination with men in skirt continues. For J.W. Anderson‘s autumn/winter 2011 collection, men walks in pleated maxi skirts and wide pleated culottes without looking too feminine.

The collection also consist of cut-out sweaters worn as skirts layered over the trousers.

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.

ANGELO VAN MOL spring/summer 2012

Here’s a preview of what to expect from Angelo Van Mol‘s menswear s/s 2012, a collection of clean and minimal pieces, using modern fabrics (I’m seeing neoprene). Modern silhouette in both dark and summery colour palettes. Cleverly titled ‘Techno Logical Sports’, it was nicely shot by Zeb Daemen.

fashion: EDMUND OOI

Judging from these images, Antwerp Academy‘s fashion student Edmund Ooi is one to watch. The world of menswear fashion definitely needs someone like Ooi, his work is experimental, and the use of unconventional materials create a futuristic look. Having said that, not many men can pull these looks off.

Another exciting collection by Dimitris Petrou. His (menswear) spring/summer 11 collection titled ‘Theros’, which means ‘summer’ in Greek, includes sleeveless blazer shirts, knitted vests and leather tops, which I could easily wear as my daily uniform for work. The colour palette is slightly dark in navy blue and earthy brown but with a splash of summery ocean blue.

skirts + bird of paradise prints | GIVENCHY MENSWEAR SPRING 2012

More gender-breaking pieces from Givenchy menswear spring 2012 by Riccardo Tisci. More men in skirts, which eventually (and hopefully) will become the thing of the present. The bird of paradise prints are delightful, which goes really well with the light and summer-y colour palette.

Dimitris Petrou | Sur Mesure A/W 2010-11

I came across this collection by Dimitris Petrou a while back via trendland.net. Feminine detailing on some of the exciting pieces in shades of grey, including sheer shirt (above), belted sleeveless top (below) and what looks like a cape attached to a wool coat (far below). I definitely want that in my wardrobe.

I recently came across Seoirse Kavana‘s (great name) menswear collection titled ‘Urban Survival’ at Not Just A Label. The use of ‘weather proof’ fabrics, alongside ‘delicate knitwear’ and chiffon, is very interesting. Featuring creative cuts and intricate knit detailing, the collection was inspired by horror and post-apocalyptic movies.
