Shirts in the Fall 2016 Menswear collections
February 14, 2016 maria

First post, so I’ll start with my favourite topic: Shirts ! The Mens Fashion Week for Fall 2016 is long published and in the bits and bytes world I am probably ultra late. Nevertheless, here are a few of my favourite designers and shirt experts that have delivered inspirational garments.

Chalayan’s collection this season was named Teutonic and, as a side note, was German Autobahn inspired (ha!). That is not the reason I am fascinated by the collection though, it is mainly this beautiful shirt here that took my interest. The effect of another fabric overlapping the pockets is concept-wise very fitting and is executed well. It reminds me of the design I created in the 2nd year of my degree (see second image below).

The collection by Junya Watanabe shows these two great shirts:

They resonate with me because of their mixed-fabric-applications (net, PVC and silk) and R2-D2 -like appearance.

Comme des Garçons Shirt, as is its in the name, never let’s me down. There I can see the layering effect appearing again. From afar, the attachment between the shirt parts look like “Pleasant Ville”/Suburbia fences to me. With a closer view, I think I can see another shirting fabric peaking through. The darker shirt even has buckles to adjust the spread of the “fence”.

Verdict (as you can probably guess): Great shirts!
