Apart from the fantastic looks that were minimal and monochromatic, which I love and could easily wear, I totally love how Dries Van Noten fused art and fashion through his menswear a/w 2012 runway - by commissioning artists to paint a mural on the runway’s backdrop. I also adore the ‘floral-galactic prints.’

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.

The skirt makes a comeback at Rick Owens‘ menswear spring 2012 collection. The collection also consists of dresses, which is rather exciting. It will be a challenge for men to carry these looks but we have to remind ourselves that we (men) wore skirts before trousers became our common form of clothing.

Yohji Yamamoto‘s menswear spring 2012 collection is just fabulous, though some of the pieces might be tricky for men to wear. It features super wide culottes and wide pleated chaps. The silhouette is loose and looks comfortable. Some of the looks are styled with dual belts, which I’m sure will become a trend.
