ETXEBERRIA said that his last collections were developed around the idea of the search for wide figures and volumes, with scarcely seams or pleats, and built trusting in the patterns and the dimension of the fabrics in order to solve the objects. Nevertheless, this research eventually moved him away from the classical tailoring, one of my most important models and primitive driving force of his work. For that reason, and willing to revise and coming back to these origins, the collection that designer presenting places the classical tailoring as the center and base of its development. 

The volumes find their inspiration in the English tailoring from the 1920's, especially in the night and gala garments. The Neapolitan tailoring from the 1950's plays an important role regarding the silhouettes and lengths. Among the fabrics, fundamental in his work, he used wool and felt, combined with leather and fur as usually. The felts draw references to classical fabrics such as herringbone, pin-stripe, hound's-tooth and jacquard, and combine with each other by overlapping or simple cuts, in a search of mixes that puts them out of the common contexts. Shoes and boots revive the mixes of the garments as well.

New York Fashion Week SS2016: Men`s. Day 3.

My look for New York Fashion Week: Men`s. Day 3 was based in three traditional Ukrainian colors. Black, Red and White... I had black overall from small Korean brad, Topman burgundy shoes and Ukrainian hand-made embroidered traditional shirt Vyshyvanka. The art of embroidery in Ukraine traces its roots back to the pre-Christian period, it has centuries-old history. It is proved by results of archaeological dig and travellers' documentary evidence. As a whole, embroidery is dated from the epoch primeval. Third day was the most crazy and full of events for me. I took my camera with me again and did some professional pictures. Enjoy! DeTROIT Men’s RTW Spring 2016 Casual and soft was the main focus of deTROIT’s spring lineup. The collection featured an array of softly constructed jackets, lightweight and sheer shirts with flowy and voluminous trousers and an elongated navy trench.  Source All  pictures available  here .
