Ethosens AW13 Collection
There’s no denying that Japanese brands have been delivering some of the most striking collections lately, as Ethosens’ offerings for the (hopefully) distant Winter proves yet again. Outstanding trenchcoats and macs are given new life through biased designs and patching details, while superb heavy cable knitted sweaters and trousers allow to bring some texture int the mix. Definitely one to keep under the radar…
There are several ways to introduce interesting elements to an attire; although our first impressions are undoubtedly visual, and color plays a huge role in this area, the whole universe that comprises an attire is much more intricate. When it comes down to it, everything from patterns, to contrasts and more importantly textures, have a significant impact in the outcome: after all, in its bare essence, we are dealing with fabrics…
It’s amazing how the same fabric ends up delivering such different garments through alternative production techniques, like in this case wool, used in the heavy knit cable cardigan and smooth floral scarf and herringbone slacks. Striped braces add some panache and the suple taupe suede derbies bring yet another texture to the mix.
Details: cable knit toggle cardigan by Officina 36º, dress shirt by Paul Smith, herringbone wool slacks by Gentleman, suede derby shoes by Buttero, cap by H&M, shades by Linda Farrow Luxe, wool/silk scarf by Èpice, braces by Tie Rack and polka dot socks by H&M.
