Songzio, Jun Hashimoto and Bodybound stand out during Singapore Men's Fashion Week

SONGZIO

As Men's Fashion Week concludes in Singapore, here are my picks of some of the best Asian  designers for menswear that were showcased.



Songzio

Korean designer Songzio impressed once again with an elegant, wearable, yet slightly edgy collection. Using wool, lamb skin, twead an suede velvet, Songzio created a collection that played with maxi volumes and an emphasize on loose wide pants and loose coats and jackets. His signature classic hard bended collar school uniform transformed into washed vintage lambskin leather this season. A deep violet dominated his palette, with black, frosty beige, brown and ink blue complementing it.

Japanese designer Jun Hashimoto peppered his collection with beautiful dashes of bright colors, from tangerine orange (a "it" color found in many other collections this season) to red and electric blue. The collection showcased fitted silhouettes often counterbalanced by a coiled wool wrap to cocoon for the winter.

The UK based label Bodybound (designed by Singaporean designer Kim Choong-Wilkins ) came back for the second year with a strong and edgy knitwear collection that drew inspiration from Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World."

Exploring uniforms as symbols of conformity and paradox (for example the golfing jumpers is today completly divorced from its sporting origin), the designer tried to restore the body of the garment to its sporting roots by using performance fabrics and reinterpreting the Argyle patterns with metal rivets.

There was also an interesting series of bronze coated metallic knitwears.
