Munich-based clothing brand A Kind of Guise presents a preliminary glimpse at their forthcoming Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Driven by their love of their home base and the blessings that come along with having a solid foundation of peers who push them to limitless heights, the preview suggests that in fact, “home is where the heart is.” Aesthetically, subdued tones with intricate patterned details are consistent throughout – mixing cold weather staples like jackets and button-ups with corduroy pants. Keep an eye out for the entire collection dropping in the near future.
The collections of A Kind Of Guise feature a mix of a wide variety of styles, putting effort into every piece’s uniqueness with a special focus on color and detail. Their Fall/Winter Collection 2012 is entitled ’The Carpathian Season’. This is their discriptive text to the concept of the collection:
A year ago a good friend of ours decided to leave everything behind, to live a lonely life somewhere in the outback of south-east europe. His journey led him to an ostrich farm near the serbian border. Ever since he lives there raising ostriches.
He kindly invited us and early this winter we decided to pay him a visit.
Once being there we took the chance to travel across nearby countries, getting to know their culture and people..
As it was in previous collections this experience of changing our environment and getting to know something new heavily influenced our next Autumn/Winter collection for 2012.
The way of life and the attitude of the people we meet is what we try to translate into our products. This time the “Carpathian Season” is the outcome of this process.
Fresh from Munich’s A Kind of Guise comes a preview of their South-of-the-border-inspired “Viva la Mexico” collection. Heavily influenced by the Mexican artifacts found at the Weltkulturen Museum of Frankfurt, AKOG utilized color tones and bleached shades to create garments that payed homage to the mystically charged culture. One part historical project and equal parts an imagined experience of traveling through Mexico, expect to see the “Viva la Mexico” collection hitting their web store in the very near future. - Selectism
