Vast & Arid / MA / SS19 / Dennis Eichmann
The desert and its landscape were the main inspiration for this queer mens*wear collection.
The colors and textures of the landscape are reflected in the clothes: pink, violet, and blues are combined with earthy tones of beige, off-white and brown. Fine silk and tulle are juxtaposed with heavier materials like natural denim and wool. A digital print was developed from spotted goat fur. Different types of denim were bleached by hand in a similar pattern. Both of which mimic the scattered bushes in the sandy surrounding. The matte fabrics are contracted with silver details like zippers, belts and shoes and caps.
This collection is an attempt to provoke new ways of looking at masculinity through fashion by breaking the boundaries of gender-specific pieces of clothing. Caftans and slip-dresses go hand in hand with cargo pants and utility jackets, giving the wearer an elegant, genderfluid look. The outfits are rounded off by various versions of 5-panel-hats and styled with high-heeled boots.
