BLURRING THE LINES WITH NON

The new 'Alchemia Mysteria' collection from NON plays with elements of womenswear, such as nipped in waists, pearls and mary janes, to create a dramatic and some what unusual menswear S/S 11 collection. The way NON plays around with volume has always excited me; they are not threatened with going outside the realms of the typical male and female silhouette; they have fun blurring the lines, creating voluminous shapes with unexpected textures like lace and pleats. I particularly like the detailing in the 3rd and 4th looks with gathers in the arms and from the waist. 
It goes without saying that the incredible Salvador Dali-esque photography mimics NONs surreal design esthetic and creates a whole other dimension for them to play in.

  1. Is it wrong that I like a man in a twinset and pearls? The pleated blazers are amazing too. x
