The above artwork titled CLOAK is a collaborative sculpture piece by Laura Fishman and dervinBATARLO. With Batarlo’s skills in fashion design and pattern cutting, CLOAK was produced using more than six (up to ten, if I’m not mistaken) ‘liquid paintings’ by Fishman. This multicoloured artwork (check Laura Fishman’s website to see its original colours) will be exhibited as part of the SEAMS exhibition this coming September, during London Fashion Week, brought to you by Sweet’Art. Come and join us on September 13th (2014) for the private view. Check the flyer (below) for more details or you can contact me via Twitter (dervinbatarlo) or email (dervinbatarlo.icloud.com).


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.

feminine looks @ RAD HOURANI spring/summer 2012

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.
