Dirk Bikkembergs Menswear spring 2014
Designer Hamish Morrow put on an artistic performance for the Dirk Bikkembergs Menswear spring 2014 collection. The show was taken place on the 39th floor of a skyscraper in Milan, and the looks rose to new heights like the building itself. Assembling his 15 models around a mirror cubist structure, he wanted all attention to be focused on the different effects of the technical materials used in his pieces. The mirrors did just the trick. So many innovative textures were incorporated in this fun set. Designers are experimenting more and more with these “fabrics of the future.”
Although the majority of the looks were in the white realm, several prints and colors did stand out. The fuchsia floral prints on super light leather is a masculine meets feminine touch that ends up looking lovely. The gray raincoat is thin nylon with shiny aluminum details, while most of the fitted T-shirts are made out of a 3D mesh material. The overall silhouettes are comfortable but fitted. Bermuda shorts are seen again (it’s a trending guy’s look!), and most are paired with sporty windbreakers and suit jackets. All the looks are completed with large goggles, resulting in an intertwined formal meets sport vibe.
All the textures work so well together. Mesh and leather never looked better. A white zip-up jacket looks stellar with the visible periwinkle lining. The matching shorts make it all come together. Guys look great in periwinkle, and it’s a color that’s not often seen in menswear. Morrow realized this and soared like his ascending models. fdmLOVES DIRK BIKKEMBERGS Menswear spring 2014 by Brigitte Segura, written by Allison Ripa.
