We featured Danish menswear designer Christian Westphal‘s Spring/Summer 2010 collection a few months back and have been anxiously awaiting look book images for the Fall/Winter 2010 collection. They arrived last night and the collection looks amazing.
“The collection from has a refined aesthetic with slashes of Renaissance heroes from the paintings of Tizian and El Greco. The cuts, colours, silhouettes and attitude of the Italian Renaissance paintings is the inspiration for the collection.”
“The look is a glamorous, dirty but quiet, modern Euro-boho, with an ongoing nod to armoured self confident kings and noblemen dressed in shiny black metal waistcoat, oversized shirts, small and neat collars and accessorized with heavy trims and huge scarfs. A style that contributes to dress with layer on layer, like the urban nomads we have become.
The strategy is to modernize menswear, calibrating the millimeter of difference that separates a boring uniform from an innovative piece. Christian Westphal sees avant-garde as deconstruction, working to and from the human body and making pieces with a strong, modern look.”
