2k15 is coming to an end. But Seoul based brand Manfromus is leaving it with a big bang.
This modern street men’s clothing brand is wowing with its experimental designs, combining street wear with social awareness. WEAR, SHARE, LIVE is the motto. The street bohemian touched clothing with clean and modern design is everything I am looking for in fashion. And I am kinda glad I am leaving this year with this dope collection on my dash. I am ready for 2k16 and for more Manfromus to come…
Chanel Cruise Seoul just happened.
And this collection is actually one of the better ones (don’t kill me for saying that). Karl Lagerfeld is taking traditional elements from the Korean culture and combining it with the typical Chanel look. And maybe my fantasy is too much right now, but some looks remind me of a kick ass Street Fighter character. Like a couture kick ass character.
BYUNGMUN SEO is a visually provocative menswear ready-to-wear line, which makes me ready to wear some of the pieces from SS15.
It displays an unconventional construction of garment that often plays with creative pattern cutting and pushes the boundaries of traditional fashion and silhouette.The philosophy of this label is that fashion needs to be functional first of all,but also conceive a style that reflects the mood and state of mind: poetic,sensitive and melancholic. The inspiration exudes a sense of discreet chic, the essence of timeless style, drawn on a monochromatic, poetic expression through experimental pattern cutting. The limit of colour on this brand (Palette of black, grey and touches of pure whites)allows to mix all pieces with each other and to create fresh,personalized looks.It also can accentuate the contrast of high textured fabric showing diversity and harmony.The intelligent combination of high end fabric with a variety of other materials gives the brand a luxurious and exclusive look and feel introduces the chic yet, contrasting fabrics is draped and layered to create very distinctive and sombre clothes to clad a twenty-first century gentleman. The Byungmun Seo SS15 collection takes cues from the street while still highlighting serious tailoring (and a knack for unconventional draping). The silhouettes range from hyper-gathered to sleek and planar. Seo incorporates a mix of symmetrical and asymmetrical silhouettes, and pays respect to pounding summer heat by featuring cropped trousers, jackets, and sweaters. In true Byungmun Seo fashion, the creative pattern-cutting is the absolute star of the collection. Outerwear looks as if it was carved from wood as its structures curve, tuck, peek out, or even disalign with one another. Each edge in its pattern-cutting is the new beginning of the collection’s inspirational rebels. Then, drop-crotch cropped pants and long, loose shorts proudly assert drapes scoping from the planar and angular to über-complex gathering, and almost feminine, wafting numbers. From casual, urban-inspired styles to much more formal attire (and even a jumpsuit), this collection’s considered it all.
While Kim Kardashian is breaking the internet with her butt, Antimatter is talking the internet and the cyber world (from seapunk, netart to webpunk to you fucking name it) into their FW14 lookbook for a collection called “Sunset At Noon”. And the Seoul based streetwear brand is pushing it to perfection with it! Like not only the clothes are dope as fuck. but the lookbook presentation is just on point.
And as soon as I converted Won into € and got money on my bank account I will purchase the shit out of their webshop. In the meantime I will just stare at this lookbook: Pictures via Antimatter
