One of the few designers to feature a menswear collection at this season’s London Fashion Week, Danish designer Peter Jensen has been able to make all the stronger impression for showcasing some great men’s outfits at a female orientated event.
I’ve always admired Jensen’s refreshing and seemingly cynical attitude towards the fashion world in general, and this outlook is evidently reflected in his clothing. While most male designers are still leaning toward severely tapered waists and overly sharp cuts, Jensen opts for wider silhouettes and softer materials, shown particularly in the left hand picture, doing so without compromising on the integrity of the outfit and maintaining a masculine cut.
Much of this is due to the muted metallic and granite colouration of the collection, the slightly dulled sheen of the above outfits giving a clean, but not certainly not clinical, finish to each one. This is in contrast with the the more "comfortable", almost organic design, but together they work to present wearable and refined clothing.
