selection: YOHJI YAMAMOTO menswear AW 2013


Don’t let the faux mustache and facial hair distract you, Yohji Yamamoto‘s menswear AW 2013 collection is fun yet very smart. It features men in kilts and long skirts in dark colour palette, which is something he has done before. As always, loose tailoring is evident in the collection as well as the baggy cropped trousers. It also includes oversized knitwear and aprons, which I think is great for menswear layering.

plaid shirts and floor-skimming skirts @ QASIMI AW12

The baseball caps and the boxy tops layered over the shirts in Qasimi‘s autumn/winter 2012 collection gives the collection a boyish and slightly urban look. Soft and transparent plaid shirts are juxtaposed with the heaviness of the floor-skimming skirts, which create great balance. The ultra-long skirts does not threaten its masculine look, making the skirt a more acceptable piece of garment for men.

feminine pieces from TWENTY (2) TOO’s SS12 menswear collection

Twenty (2) Too‘s spring/summer 2012 menswear collection caught my attention, mainly to do with my obsession with men in skirts and gender-breaking clothing. Minimal colour palette with some reds and blues injected to some pieces, the clothes are modern and youthful. The collection by Mihai Dan, based in (Bucharest) Romania, consists of long tunics/smocks/dresses (for men?), ankle-length skirts. jumpsuits and a lot of cropped leggings.

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.

men in skirts by TINA ELISABETH REITER

Being obsessed with men in skirts and feminine menswear fashion, I found Tina Elisabeth Reiter‘s gender-breaking looks rather exciting. Along with the long pleated skirts, her MA collection – titled ‘THE SOUND OF HOMELESS(NESS)’ – consists of loose-fitting pieces, which include a shirt and a blazer with ruched bell-shaped sleeves.

more skirts @ GIVENCY MENSWEAR pre-fall 2012

Following on from his SS 2012 menswear collection for Givenchy, Ricardo Tisci continues to break the rule by including skirts for pre-fall 2012 collection. Despite its traditional association, the looks are styled well with the skirt blending in well with the rest of the pieces, making it look rather masculine.

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.

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.
