The Fall ’14 menswear collections have marched down the catwalk in London, Florence, and Milan, and are now under way in Paris. Before the new clothes hit the runway, we’ve asked some of the most anticipated names to offer a sneak peek. Per usual, it’s a busy time for all—designers and fashion followers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length at 140 characters or less. Our entire collection of Fall ’14 previews is available here.
WHO: Miharayasuhiro, designed by Mihara Yasuhiro
WHEN: Saturday, January 18
WHAT: “My cultural influences …” —Mihara Yasuhiro. The designer sent us a pair of inspiration images, above.
Earlier this week, Whitney Biennial attendees spotted Chloë Sevigny rocking a pair of metal-plated jeans; the week before that, paparazzi snapped Kylie Minogue stepping out in a similar pair. Their armorer is Husam el Odeh, the London-based jeweler who collaborated with Acne on a range of metal-accented denim. El Odeh is a frequent guest star for other brands—he’s also collaborated with Topman and the Japanese label Miharayasuhiro—but his own collection, which he unveils in Paris this week, shows he’s more than able to stand on his own. The new collection takes inspiration from the fractalized forms of molecules and crystals: Semiprecious stones have been placed upside down in settings constructed from a single sheet of metal, folded origami-style. “I quite like how the restriction of having to fit the stones onto a shape that was once flat almost gives the piece its own sense of rhythm,” el Odeh told Style.com. “I play with all sorts of materials, some quite unusual,” he continued, citing experiments with glacé fruit and candy. “In some ways, it’s led me to treat classic jewelry materials as unusual in themselves.”
