MUTATE AW13 / DIEGO ZÚÑIGA
[ M U T A T E . AW13 ]
The homonymous firm of the Mexican designer returns this Fall/Winter 2013 with MUTATE. The starting point is the beetle, an insect that throughout history has been an inspiration for industrial design, architecture and the military world. With eight all-black looks, MUTATE is characterized by oversize pieces, tailored quality and sporty touches. It surprises us with dynamic and original cuts, mesh details, and for the first time in the brand’s history there is a couple of functional accessories (cap and backpack) to create an outfit that reflects the concept perfectly. The collection? Wide-cut blazers with relaxed lapels, sweaters with wide sleeves, pants with big cargo-like pockets, and short wide pants. The textures reflect inspiration and are mixed with the designer’s characteristic black-over-black detail. The fortress, intellect, routine, and strength of the contemporary man is what emerges from this proposal from Zúñiga.

The necessity of fashion - NVU with Armand Hadida , l'Eclaireur
I had the pleasure of spending time with Armand Hadida in Tokyo recently when he was celebrating the first anniversary of l'Eclaireur Tokyo. I thought that you would enjoy hearing what he has to say about fashion.
P.S. What is with youtube.com and brightcove.com these days promoting other videos on top of the posted image, personally I really do not approve of the self promotion. What are your thoughts?
