selection: DRIES VAN NOTEN menswear AW 2013

Image

For autumn/winter 2013, Dries Van Noten menswear collection features paisley prints on dressing gowns and pyjamas, boxy tops and ribbed hem trousers, which looks effortless and comfortable. Some are worn with studded leather trousers for a grungy and youthful look. Layering and mismatching prints are on show but as always, Van Noten does it with ease (without looking over the top). It also includes tunics and wide shouldered blazers, which is quintessentially Dries Van Noten.

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.

Print test for River Island Menswear/Prints competition

Ghostly lines hovering above layers of fragmented shapes and colours. Incalculable dots mixing with splashes of abstracted pigmentation. Dark colours with invigorating neon shades. All blended as if they are meant to be together.
