At London Fashion Week I was instantly drawn to Cristo. This collection had me going gaga. So much so, that Maria and I decided to take the opportunity and do a photoshoot of it. In his own words, Hong Kong designer Jean Chan describes his collection.
The SS13 collection Modern Dandyism is an experimental take on new generation menswear. I am trying to create a new kind of men who are very well groomed and yet sort of delicate and fragile, kind of like mixing the idea of a man and flowers together since this is the sort of men I am obsessed with. My kind of men. Beautiful, pale skin and delicate. I have also drawn some retro inspiration from The Great Gatsby, bringing to life the mood of eccentricity and good-taste-be-damned point of view.
Modern Man Collection
Mis-matching colours and louder-the-better floral prints, these are the collective ideas of what I think modern men should be wearing. It tells the story of timeless sartorial perfection.
