Paris Men Fashion Week Spring 2012

Tapping into the spirit of spring, the men of Songzio go blond for the new season. The romantic heart of a poet personified, the eye-catching ensemble represents the elegance of the 1970′s, juxtaposed with the modernity of sharp lines.

Accessorized with footwear modeled after traditional Korean shoes, Songzio’s leading man brings his foot forth with a dapper collisions of tradition and the mode of tomorrow. Here, robe-cut outerwear and mandarin collars enrich a regal on-pouring of tailored suiting. Dressed in black and white, from plunging neckline or cummerbund to silhouettes lengthened or cropped, Songzio delivers a seasoned spectacle that inspires.


Komakino menswear Fall Winter 2011-2012 collection

Komakino menswear Fall Winter 2010 collection

clothes by Komakino, Styling by Matthew Josephs and Photography by Nik Hartley.

Husband and wife duo, Komakino, launched their 4th collection during the last London Fashion Week. The pair, consisting of South Korean born Jin Kim and Italian Federico Capalbo, met in Florence and moved to London in 2005. Kim has worked for Topman design, Michiko Koshino London and McQ Alexander Mc Queen, while Capalbo is currently studying Menswear design at Central St Martins.

Fe and Jin, as their friends know them, have been working on the label since their move to the capital and although initially a street-wear label, they have evolved well into their signature style ofDuo fusing military influences with tailoring.

Their AW09 offering was based on fascist buildings and a sense of disillusion, aiming to present an apocalyptic vision. “Interaction within a social atmosphere plays a big role in the design process. Komakino is based on reality, taking current cultural aspects, implementing them then giving them a twist”, Fe says. The collection saw a dark palette of deconstructed jackets and trousers with unfinished details, elasticated bands covering t-shirts and jeans, juxtaposed with tailored finishes on box shaped coats and sheer hooded tops.

The design duo, previously showing at London Fashion Week in September 2007, have also produced a range of exclusive Komakino t-shirts and prints for Levi’s Korea, and have presented at Tokyo Fashion Week.
