3 designers (the terrific three as I like to call them)…
and therefore a whole lot of fashion was going on Monday during London Collections: Men. A whole lot of jaw-dropping fashion to be precise. And that’s why I fucking adore the fashion scene of London. I swear I live in the wrong town, but that’s a whole nother story and I am not going to open this topic now. So back to the terrific three:
Chelsea Bravo has been my shit for a couple of seasons now (actually since last season, but once you’re my shit, you keep on being my shit, there is no escape):
The vision for the Chelsea Bravo brand is to explore creative freedom and to continually push contemporary menswear design through construction, shape and silhouette. With a spirit of curiosity and a desire to explore and discover Chelsea Bravo challenges the conventions of menswear in her SS15 collection, like she always does. And that collection is so good that I am going to start crying if I won’t be able to get it (like the yellow/white t-shirt and the blue/white striped vest).
And as if Chelsea Bravo wasn’t enough, stuff got better and better with Clara Martin:
Clara Martin is a London based Menswear designer. With her collections being heavily based on concept, Clara finds the method of experimentation a large focal point when designing. Fusing tailoring with inventive shape, knit with pattern and print with texture, Clara is often pushing boundaries set within menswear as a test for interesting results. For her SS15 she is experimenting with a lot of 2D and 3D shapes. #TeamC
And last but not least of the terrific three trio is Beau Homme.
Beau Homme is created by George Bunker and Justin Mansfield back in October 2011 with the focus on everyday menswear clothes that delicately challenge prevailing conventions. The expected is transformed into a signature aesthetic, seamlines are shifted, interiors of garments are folded over and outwards to mirror aerodynamic forms; novel and unexpected details abound. You can just imagine how this brand made me feel… Almost ripped off the clothes of the models and walked away. Far away. Far far away.
I cannot wait for spring 2015! Def gonna make my way to one or two of the shown pieces (actually it’s gonna end up with a drawing credit, I swear!). Felt good to escape to the fashion world, but now it’s time for a couple of exams to write before I head to Berlin Fashion Week…
