Criminal Girl’s Menswear Spring Summer 2014 pick
After Resort 2014, Criminal Girl pay attention on menswear collections. There are a lot of interesting collection , and Criminal Girl pick 7 collections as her favorites!
I like Miharayasuhiro the most in SS2014 menswear! The collection is very delicate, I like the KatsushikaHokusai- like Yamato-e print matched with modern cutting and layering design. Miharayasuhiro used denim blue as the new black in this collection, and he used different variation of blue to present Yamoto-e drawing liked menswear. This collection shows romance and tradition of Japanese signature culture in a modern treatment.

Riccardo Tisci did a futuristic collection in Spring Summer 2014, and interpreted his kind of futuristic to be a techno- world. This collection created a clan as techno-tribalism , with sound and industrial elements. The color interpretation of techno-tribalism is interesting, not using white or light grey, but used red, blue and black n white stripes to create Riccardo Tisci’s own music world!

3) Henrik Vibskov
Criminal Girl always keep an eye on Henrik Vibskov’s new collection, especially menswear! Since he really applied new concepts in every seasons, this season he used ” Bathtub Observer” as his main theme of collection. Henrik Vibskov makes us to imagine ourselves as visual disorders and dysfunctions, and get into their world. He used color patch work and printed dots to create a 3D effect surface of his clothing. The poster and clothing printed monkeys are the “Bathtub Observer” with visual disorder and dysfunction in Henrik Vibskov’s mind.

The first inpression of Kenzo Spring Summer 2014 collection is very 70s like and Paris touched. However, after Carol and Leon explained their concept, it’s a totally different feeling. Carol and Leon used seventies Jungle Jap collections, circus-training academy and California as inspiration , created a very holiday mood collections. Criminal girl like a lot the simply hand-drawing and color block printed in this collection, simple but chic! Carol and Leon focused on black n white color as base of collection, with a good choice of matching red and different variation of blue. The good choice of colors makes this collection 70s like, but still very modern when matches with black and white simple print.

5) 3.1 Philip Lim
Philip Lim shows a kind of “Random” in his SS2014 collection. The muse of this collection is “accidental tourist”, everything happened in a hurry, sudden and without orders. This is a casual collection with effort on mix and match and layering. Philip Lim used different materials like thick knit, leather, linen and denim to create his kind of “Messy look”, but this “messy look” looks so cool on mens. Criminal girl likes the washed denim a lot, it seems light and causal,but still keep its kind of chic.

6) Burberry Prorsum
It just like getting in a candy world when watching Burberry Prorsum Spring Summer 2014 collection. Christopher Bailey takes a good balance in between creativity and market. The cutting of latest collection is quite save and easy to carry, but the colors of this collection is funky and wayward kindred. It makes the whole collection becomes young and energetic. The candy like colors shows a kind of op art elements in this collection, and customers can also but different kind of single pieces to match with their own traditional Burberry Prorsum jackets or coats.

7) Acne Studio
Yes, Criminal Girl writes Acne Studio again in menswear. I really think they did a good job in every single menswear collection ! This time Jonny Johansson used Swedish outsider artist Hilma af Klint as his muse of this collection. The artistic gold and metallic colors matches with warm colors – camel and deep purple , gives a harmony and warm feeling in this collection. Criminal Girl also likes the choose of male modern a lots, it presents Hilma af Klint’s boy so much, and the boy’s gold hair is in Hilma af Klint’s color palette.
