Fabio Quaranta A/W 15 Paris Menswear Fashion

Fabio Quaranta’s vision

Leaving aside the aesthetic references to the worlds of fashion and contemporary music, this season the investigation concentrates on traditional dress. Looking for that folk aesthetic as a tradition, as archetype of people’s culture and appearance.

An element of a narrative object was developed in this collection, the iconic garments so characteristic of the classic tailoring were analyzed in their entirety.

A Game of Cross over seems to be the synthesis of the collection. Through a process of ‘Cut-Up’ and manipulation, clothes are decontextualized, almost swallowed one into the other and are adapted for use by both. There os a loss of gender and a synthesis capable of creating another:

“PANDROGENIA”, a term borrowed from the artist Genesis P-orridge almost a tribute to the work he carried out with his wife Lady Jane.

Today’s collection is timeless and classic, and Thomas Harvey Head of Menswear design is keen to state that this season’s offering os not ‘trend-led’. There is a real focus on fabric innovation, with an obvious hark back to the brand heritage.With modern take on exploration, Edmund Hillary’s ascent to Everest was the starting point, and the brand’s involvement in creating fabric for this monumental event. Mountaineering inspires lots of the outwear pieces, which have expedition details in the fabrics used.

SANKUANZ

SANKUANZ GQ CHINA

Renowned for his distinctive and playful aesthetic, the SANKUANZ collection explores the conflicting cultural elements that exist in Asian youth sub culture.  Creating his own unique world outside of the constraints of mainstream society, Sankuanz offers his audience an alternative form of expression.

The Autumn/ Winter 2015 collection looks to observation on the struggle in differentiating between what is dream and reality.  Entitled Dolphin Hotel, the collection draws inspiration from a transient dream like location.  The mood conjured by the striking prints.

Within the collection, SANKUANZ combines 1990’s sportswear with European court dress.  Neoprene fabric is used to create a melt wet suit with an exquisite dobby print.  The collection mixes contemporary and functional fabrics with traditional menswear craftwork.  Print is used to conjure and set the main inspiration of the Dolphin Hotel, a transient and dream like location.

GQ China was launched in October 2009, and lastly established the status as the most important men’s brand in China.  Being the leading influencer and advocator in the Chinese menswear industry, GQ China is proud to serve as a bridge and medium introducing China’s fashion design talent to an international arena.

“It is a privilege to be working alongside GQ China for a second consecutive season and debut my AW15 collection at this years London Collections Men.  GQ China have been a great support during the last two seasons and have given me a fantastic opportunity to showcase SANKUANZ and Chinese design to a large audience not only in the UK but globally.”
