Tom Rebl – Milan Men’s FW 2014-15 Review

By  |  0 Comments

Showing what can be done with animal skins, prints, colors and fabrics is exactly what Tom Rebl showed us in Milan. He started off with white designs purifying the audience then transitioned into dark colors and fabrics before lighting up the runway again in a transitional black to white suit and going back to the dark colors and a warrior mentality. Nothing starts off a great show like snakeskin leather with a fur collar. A white and gray snakeskin leather moto jacket with an extra-long white to gray fur collar with an asymmetrical zipper design that is. Showing how combining various fabrics and animal skins can work wonders together. That was then followed by a white mock neck blazer with an asymmetrical front zipper and back vent. His use of other snakeskin prints for his bronze two piece suit made from leather is just as unique. Even though bronze is considered a thirds place color, the longer you look at it, the more it feels like gold. Transitioning from leather to fur then back to leather and then to a green stitched and patterned hunter green cotton turtleneck crochet sweater with four different rugby style patterns and two horizontal stripes of metal loops on the chest is was the next look right before an actual transition suit. The transitional suit started with a shawl collared blazer with black shoulders and faded out to an off white waist and then faded back to black below the knees of the pants. It had a spray painted design feel to it which made it very urban chic.

Some blazers even had vent appliques which were a different approach to the modern blazer, but the most unique aspect of the show was the warrior section at the end. A satchel style pair of chain links held a black heart shaped canteen and a black vest made up of about one hundred individual pieces of leather all connected and held together by same chain link piercings resembling stitches and portraying a medieval knight’s armor with modern style. King Arthur’s round table would not dream of this style during their celebrations but if King Arthur tried it Queen Guinevere would have approved.

 

“The clothes do make the man.” How you’re dressed is the first thing someone notices and you only get one first impression, so why not make it great always? My interests are men’s fashion and lifestyle.
