Being a company that’s known for it’s silk, we can’t help but notice the rise in the use of it in designer’s latest menswear collections. It’s a bit of electricity mixed with a metropolitan feel. Its as if Mr Miami Vice stuck his finger in a plug socket.
But when taken under the wings of big names such as Haider Ackerman and Maison Martin Margiela, the look is given a dash of attitude, and a drip of tattoos and suddenly there’s something cleverly-cool about it. Maybe that’s my inner Hugh Hefner talking, you decide. Look at Shantung and Taffeta for a sharp, crisp, look.
