IVANMANunveiled its Spring/Summer 2017 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Ljubljana.
The collection draws its inspiration from the 80s film Baghdad Café. In the film, as in fashion, world views collide with modern life clashing against traditions. From this wild and oblique world spring new constellations of colors, shapes, and forms. Classic men’s wear, eloquent and rich in details, engage with modern impulses to create a collection that is at once harmonious and unfamiliar. Each look focuses on distinct structures reinvigorated by an innovative dynamic of colors.
“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
For the Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and artistic directors of Maison Kitsuné, drew their inspiration from American pop culture and the aesthetic and creative energie of New York born, Paris based, artist William Klein.
