I remember last Fashion Week season I was so excited for IVANMAN, which was actually opening the FW14 season (maybe I am wrong, but I think I am right). But I just fucked up and didn’t go, because I was fucked up from the party the night before. Like I literally went to bed at like 8 am and the show was at 10 am. I chose sleep over fashion. But this time I did the right thing and chose fashion over sleep.
Stylism and Modelism were the formative influences of IVANMAN and still are for his SS15 collection. The creations of the Berlin-based designer Ivan Mandzukic with Serbian (all that Balkan connection I swear) roots are drawn from a geometric purism, which is reflected in its clean lines and minimalist silhouettes. Graphic details, such as origami folding techniques and cubist forms meet expressive colors such as ruby red, cobalt blue, ocher, or pure white. His designs always seem like classically contemporary fashion artworks.
