The Men’s Fashion Week 2012
The answer? All the above and more.
The 5 days of Men’s Fashion Week 2012 saw an explosion of the most fashionably dressed people on stage and off stage. Surrounded by beautiful cars and accesories and feted with wine and music.
Staged at a cost of estimated S$8 million, Singapore is the only country in Asia (and third in the world) to stage a Men’s Fashion week. With an emphasis on Korea and Japan, the 5 nights saw 18 labels from Korea, Japan, UK, France, US and Singapore showcasing their collection.
Of particular interest was Songzio, the well established designer of Korea, who skipped Seoul Fashion Week 2012 to be appear as one of the opening act for Singapore Men’s Fashion Week 2012.
Lee Jung Shin of CN Blue was originally supposed to be the main model for Songzio’s show in Singapore but could not make it at the last minute due to work commitment. Whilst it was a disappointment to many of his fans, Songzio’s clothes was a delight. I like the royal muted purple (he said he had a hard time trying to find just the right shade of purple in an earlier interview) that he used in his collection.
The other was Spencer Hart from UK. Reknown for bespoke tailoring, the brand at Savile Row was participating for first time in a runway show and especially prepared a whole new collection just for it. Oohh… I do love a well cut suit.
His collection reminds me so much of James Bond..that suave, well dressed gentleman…with a license to kill.
And no shoes! How cool!
It was Korean night on the second night and labels like Beyond Closet, Vandal, Resurrection, D.Gnak and General Idea presented their own line.
One of the interesting aspect of the Men’s Fashion Week 2012 was the incorporation of music into the event. As Mr Frank Cintamani said on the opening night, music and fashion are intertwine. Madonna, Lady Gaga, Beatles, Big Bang- their music and fashion made them inspiring, interesting and larger than life.
So during the Men’s Fashion Week 2012, acts from various countries like Eli T (Singapore), Bie KPN (Thailand), Yuna Ito (Japan), 8Eight (Korea) and Se7en (Korea) performed to appreciative crowd.
MCM closed the show for Men’s Fashion week 2012 with their positively lustful range of bags and clothes.
Men’s Fashion Week 2012 ended with a loud bang. Bare hunks and bags..what can be more exciting?
It was with much regret that I could not attend all the nights at the Men’s Fashion Week 2012 because it has been really exciting. I’m already looking forward to Men’s Fashion Week 2013. Are you?
