Novi Sad, Serbia – Presenting on the catwalks of Serbia for the first time is the exciting Dutch designer Carmichael Byfield. And with the presentation of both the menswear and womenswear lines for his HOUSE OF BYFIELD label, he gained a litany of new fans.
The House of Byfield has created its own very original abstract printed pattern for the season. It is composed of tobacco, black and white. The prints appear as either single pieces, total looks and even as more simple embellishments in each silhouette. When set in motion, one has the impression that a fire has been set all about the place.
The menswear sees tightly fitting material with sumptuous textures. The guys look quite smart in the fitted suits, which are finished with crisp, white shirts. Black too has a presence in the collection, but it cannot take precedence over the House of Byfield ‘s original print.
The womenswear always use the same colors and prints as the men’s line. It is a true continuation of the menswear line and features tight jeans, jackets done in the prints with black sleeves, and pleated skirts. Because it’s a women’s line, Byfield allows itself far more liberty in terms of cuts. The skirts vary in lengths. They range midway to below the knees.
And Byfield offers its own range of accessories such as stylish bags for both men and women.
