Let's go with 20th Century Fox's fanfare!!!!
I had to stop at some point as I still have several more ideas, but now with springtime finally coming by I have to move on to something else!
First of all let me show you some of the sources of inspiration for this collection:
Ragandbones, Moschino, AuJourLeJour and Valentino's collection from 2013! (I haven't been able to identify the fourth picture, any ideas?)
The thing that impressed me most while preparing the collection is the versatility of the tartan fabric for hommes fashions, from ultra casual, sport and formal, tartan adds a great accent to every style!
What is missing from this collection are formal suits, but as I'm planning a collection of formal outfits I will sew at least a couple of them (with a complete tutorial) next fall.
Having trumpeted this collection so much I also took some time to put together some decent pictures, here are the boys on the catwalk (Note: Nicola is wearing in fact a Prince of Whales , but in scale looked more like tartan):
|Enrico, Taddeo, Sebastiano|
|Armando, Bartolomeo, Giacomo|
|Carlo, Nicola, Goffredo|
Ever since I sew the first suit in this collection I envisioned a "Highlands lookbook" for the guys. Scotland is one of the (several) places I haven't visited yet, and Sasha's pictures are on film, so I had to draw upon stock pictures from the internet as backdrops. I believe these are the perfect setting for the collection!
Lords of the manor, our Supermodels:
|Sebastiano (Valentino) Carlo (AuJourLeJour)|
|Taddeo (Original Billa) Armando (Unknown)|
|Bartolomeo (Moschno) Enrico (RagAndBones)|
