fashion east fw13
The Fashion East Installations have been one of the highlights of London Collections: Men for the past two season - young, innovative designers not afraid to go a little crazy and make some very fucking badass installations.
This is the second season the boys of Meadham Kirchhoff have gone into menswear, and once again it's just really cool. Last season saw the models sprawled onto mattresses in a messy bedroom like installation, while this season they were all posed dramatically with candles and piles and piles of trash bags. The embellishments on some of the cardigans and such were lovely and I personally was very much into the pearl & gold earrings. Sporty Nike socks under black leather sandals were fun too and made the dandy waistcoats and girly hair a little more down to earth.
Leopard print rhino mask? Check. Bucket over a models head? Check. Sportswear goodness? Double check.

Love the graphics, love the long haired rock boys, love the black and white wheatpaste style graffiti with pop culture references. I could see a lot of people wanting these jumpers.
Blonde, Andy Warhol like boys in a flurry of prints, wearing fluffy cartoon slippers in a diner is right up Burger Kim's alley. I'll have that with Liver & Onions please.
Yesssssssssss. Spacesuits and teddy bears - nuff said.
Dalmations are so hot right now. I love that he's keeping his illustrations as part of his designs. Time to buy a puppy.
