Menswear has come a long way and the modern-thinking men of today are adding excitement to their wardrobe; some play it safe but some are not scared to challenge themselves, experimenting with their styles, the silhouette and colour. Although menswear fashion today is a lot more exciting, it is still restricted to its generic silhouette. Designers such as Trine Lindegaard find menswear tricky, so she focuses on colour and detailing to make her pieces stand out.

Interesting name and interesting collection, Six Lee titled his menswear collection from a Feist song – ‘We’re all in the dance’. With a futuristic and fun approach to tailoring, the collection is boyish, which consists of short and layered tailored suit jackets and pleated shorts.

Using alternative and modern fabrics, Central Saint Martins‘ graduate Peir Wu has created a minimalist utopian menswear collection, which consists of very long tops. The simplicity of the tops with its basic shapes were made interesting by the designer’s textile technique:
“the rib knit looks as if it’s coated with a thick layer of paint at first, but over time with wear, the top layer frays and wears thin or even frays off in chunks to reveal the base layer underneath. The result was a very engineered, emotional, and Utopian collection.”

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.

Inspiring A/W 11 look book from Gareth Moody’s label, Chronicles of Never. The models have been digitally removed making the garments the centre of attention. The clothes are hovering mysteriously, waiting to be worn but that’s just my own opinion. Click HERE to read the post/interview and see the rest of the images.

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.
