<Curtain: The Redefining of Form>
The design of this menswear collection is relaxed, and the proportions play with the structure of classic menswear to express a modern vision of masculinity exploiting the metaphor of a curtain, in terms of intimacy and personal space. The collection features bomber jackets constructed with high-tech fabrics, trench coats infused with curtain tailoring techniques, and white pants with a built-in parachute harness. I mixed nylons, cottons, cashmere and jersey—a minimalist symphony where layered/quilted cottons meet foam, sleek high-tech fabrics, and soft wools in well-conceived textural movements.
