OUR SUMMER THEME ‘MAGNETIC’, DECLINED IN THREE FASHION STORIES FOR THE MEN MARKET
As a way of challenging and shaking off ambient rationalism, unveil your dark side and bet on a mysteriously dramatic seduction. Inside worlds get denser, personalities grow more vigorous and enchanting. They’re imperceptible, in obscure black tones, vibrating in hypnotic contrasts, mixed, in a mystical world fusion, or intense in primal, pigment hues. Far from the exuberant show-off, a new, in-depth way of imposing oneself emerges, heading for a dark, disturbing neo glam.
Anish Kapoor’s “Leviathan” here symbolizes the dark magnetism and irrational seductive powers. This sculpture, with its strange, attractive power, both minimalist and extraordinary, was presented during the Paris 2011 Monumenta.
Black steps in, with minimalist and graphic effects. Mysteriously inhabited, it absorbs the eye and updates the city dressing-room.
1. Natural gloss and powerful black 2. Ice-leather covering sandal 3. In a smoked plexi style 4. Manly class: adjusted leather, luxury “carrot-slim” and pallor.
Tiles, stripes and micro geometrical shapes... In black and white, dandy wealth gets optical, and casual chic vibrates.
1. Summer seersucker and destructured cotton costume… a seduction in vibrato 2. Seersucker effect: variations of scrambled bermuda grass, square polka dots, and struck-through stripes, on a wrinkled base 3. Shirting and vichy feet 4. Controlled casual: unlined spencer, plunging neckline t-shirt and optical slack… must-have summer dandy “slippers”
Manly, wear-free... Ranchwear gains in elegance, passionately warmed up in ardent, earthy soils.
1. Pink working shirt, life in color 2. Strong brick color leather, x-ray sole 3. Subtle braiding 4. Tiny volume, tucked in… The genuine urbanised: a sophisticated western
