Michael KampeBy Editor in Fashion on May 30th, 2011 | 1 Comment »
We just got word of a relatively new menswear designer — Michael Kampe — whose collection we love.
The concept for this collection is influenced by the changes of global societies triggered by elements such as internet and new media in a never before experienced speed and dynamic. “This explosive development and defragmentation I captured in this collection. My intention is to show up new directions in nenswear for instance how a garment is constructed, what materials I used and mixed with each other and how architectural shapes can symbiose with the human body. It is very important to me that especially in menswear the wearer does not look goofy or like in a costume. This is not the image of a man that I want to create. Therefore all pieces are referring to Menswear classics like trenchcoat, perfecto and tuxedo, but extremely abstracted to create innovative garments.”, says Kampe.
But the proof is really in the pudding. See for yourself in the images after the jump. For more images and info, check out Kampe’s official brand site.
