Check out these four designers that made us drool!

 

Christian Dada

 

When Lady Gaga dons your exclusive design for the 2011 MTV AID JAPAN AWARD you know you definitely struck a fashionable note. This Spring/Summer 2014 collection by Christian Dada holds as much theatrical weight as well a stylish one. Mostly menswear and dotted with key female-driven ensemble, I love the strong statement of colour (black) which gets broken up by solid infusion of glitter gold and stencil treatment. Sound familiar? Well its no coincidence that iconic rock band KISS decided to close the show indicating the purposeful musical route that Christian Dada took with this collection. Rock on!

ATO

 

Designer Ato Matsumoto is one of the stalwart of design from Tokyo. Established in 1993 with a flagship store in Minamiaoyama, he introduced his menswear line the following year. He went international in 1999 selling in over a dozen stores globally. In 2000 he debuted his collection in Paris. In 2003 he introduced his womenswear line. This season his menswear evokes a vintage classic feel with slim cut silhouette, which can easily be seen on a Beatle. Using very cool injection of colourful lines that threads the entire collection together gives each ensemble an edgier feel. Cool coats, slick pants and an overall cool factor, ATO adds an element of rock ’n’ roll vibe to his overall Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

SISE

 

Breathing an urban cool into the menswear space, Sise styles up some serious street wear.  The name Sise is a hybrid of to words: “innocent” and “insanity” and is exactly how they approach their fashionable element. Balancing safe and structured with edgy and bold, these stylish strokes create an end product that’s worthy of a super cool cosmopolitan gent who is navigating his life on Fashionable Avenue.

Patchy Cake Eater

 

An epic name and truth be told an innuendo-filled one, Patchy Cake Eater (their bio says that it means “ladies’ man with patches”…not sure what to make of that). Designer Shigeki Morino “creates the masculinity that a woman wearing men’s clothes exudes, and applies it back to men’s fashion” and he nails it with his Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Morino uses the concept of deconstructing and rebuilding by taking cues from vintage aesthetic and recreating them with modern elements creating a menswear line that’s both contemporary and historical in essence.
