Hi fashionable people,
it all started with the movie The September Issue about American VOGUE, in which Grace Coddington is doing a shooting under the topic of texture. Since that I was wondering, what role texture plays in the world of menswear and started thinking outside the box of cotton, wool or silk (and Anna Wintour so beloved fur either – it’s summer boys!).
So here are my most loved pieces:
|Blogger and designer Karl Philip Leuterio in a black leather dress with an edgy cut and zippers.
Found here on his Lookbook and Blog.
|A silver PVC vest from the Paradigm Shift Shop (which is a Philippine based online shop)…|
|…and the cool extraterrestrial looking fabric used in mixture with a grey cotton t-shirt.|
|Last but not least a look at the important designers and brands: you all will remember
BURBERRY PRORSUM’s AW 2011 show with the variable fabrics for their coats.
|And up-to-date: Dolce & Gabbana SS 2012 brought us meshed shirts, jackets and shoes.|
So boys and girls don’t hesitate to use more eccentric fabrics for your garments, because the right use of texture or mixes of different ones, is an undeniable proof of a good sense of style.
