British brand Daks celebrates its 120th anniversary by showing us its Autumn-Winter 2014-2015 collection’s runway show, the show looks appealing, youthful and modern. We saw outstanding outerwear pieces, like the leather jackets, military long coats, turtleneck capes and the leather gloves. Aw those leather gloves. That’s an impressive collection with opulent fabrics and sophisticated silhouettes. Elegant but still a modern man. I loved the colour palette. Khaki and burgundy caught my eye.
I could not describe my feelings about the venue of the show a wonderful building. Highlight of the show the music. When you listen the Wrong by the Depeche mood your heart beats a bit quicker and you are waiting that perfection to happen. That’s exactly was the feeling from the Daks men’s fashion show. One of my favorite shows ever. You don’t need much when you have this kind of clothes.
Inspired by a hypnothetical «space odyssey» the Frankie Morello Men’s collcection for Fall/Winter 2014-15 presented to us classic garments renewed with technical materials.Neoprene is used as mateleass mesh or layered with bonded fabrics, while wool has a transparent coating that reveals a glimpse of its ‘structure»
Silhouettes are oversized and full something that I love to see on men.
Prints reinterpret classic paintings with bucolic,pastoral images through the unexpected presence of austronauts as time travelers of the past.
This voyage also takes place through Frankie Morello tribe that transfroms the Pegasus, the three M’s and the number 22, symbolic lettering of the fashion house.Into amazing contemporary prints illuminated with Swarovski crystals.
The striking color palette is composed of black and white with splashes of electric blue and camel.
The most original accesory is a «dual purpose»military style that transforms from a visor cap into a pair of sunglasses.
I loved the «RUDE» sweaters and the all time classic combintation of black and white.One of my favourite collectionas by far.The fashion show was just a perfection.Every detail from the venue the music till the casting of the models were just perfect.Till the next one…

The presentation took place at the Huntergather café were we enjoyed our breakfast and coffee . Early morning with fashion and treatments from Huntergather’s amazing team. I Couldn’t ask for a better morning in London.
About the collection: zipped up and pumped up ,Huntergather AW14 sets about it with a curled lip and flicked collar. The mood is that of a long drive ,Gosling/Refn flouro -fight mode and bomber jackets cut to the quick. The colours create a kind of punk palette :reds and yellows in Pollock -like splashes which I tottaly loved khaki and stone from the street scen of the earthy eighties. And the details are out there, on the prown :Mission Impossible leathers revamped but still looking for trouble, a denim jacket must have piece for every man – that oozes intent. Like the Clash at the most cultured ,this is fashion for the seriously spirited :Brothel Creepers, distressed leather washed out wool and over -dyed denim .Mood, colours, details. Taken together it’s a new spirit for a new year.
