Lodz, Poland- For the Fall/Winter 2015-2016 the young designer Piotr Drzal showed an individualist approach to menswear. The designer, who loves to experiment and reinvent himself, got inspired by the Men’s Dress Reform Party.
The idea behind that is to dress down the still, elegant menswear. One can see the designers signature styles like asymmetry, elongated lines and men’s kilts. The whole collection splits, yet showing many graphic details. Some shirts have really tiny collars or elongated backs.
The designers put much effort to work with every detail of each garment. The collection consists of coats, turtle necks, bombers, shirts, jackets, wide legged pants cut above the ankle, kilts and even a jumpsuit. The main colors are black, white, grey and blue, with a surprising ad of orange.
I consider his show to be one of the best by the clever mixing of classical garments with a new street approach. It clearly made the audience want to see more. The designer proved once again menswear holds room for new ideas and points of view-leaning more to creative extravaganza, more than playing it safe.
