Men MFSHOW by El Corte Inglés is the first - and so far only - gateway menswear Spain so called "men's fashion week" Here I summarize the September issue of 2016 with male proposals for spring / verano 2017.
What is MFSHOW Men by El Corte Ingles? I speak of the male section MFSHOW, a walkway leading independent revolutionizing the world a few seasons moda Traditional in Spain thanks to its commitment to young brands, and different people so far "forgotten" - as curvies or men. I've been going to it for quite some time - almost from birth – and I see a very positive progression, tuning not only organizational issues, but also in the media and public interest.
In this case I speak of the male part of the same, a success in a very short time has become an indispensable meeting industry experts, passionate, celebrities or press. The will did not lose Norma Duval! It is because of that El Corte Inglés - that you know you have a great eye for blockbusters - has been supporting MFSHOW Men as a sponsor for several seasons and including some of its signature emblem within the program of parades. Por ejemplo, This year opened the catwalk spectacular parade of Emidio Tucci ... But not anticipate events that soon all participants will review their pros and cons (you already know that this blog and social networks (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram Snapchat (GafasAmarillas) there are all, all and all).
ECI (El Corte Ingles acronym for those who do not know) He proposed a number of bloggers who lived closely - and both! - the catwalk and declare it we counted with gory. And I accept the challenge. So here's lights, shadows and details of the parades of MFSHOW Men by El Corte English September 2016, which it was held in the Museum of Costume and presented proposals for menswear for spring / verano 2017.
What the brand says: A Mediterranean and minimalist atmosphere surrounding the collection next summer. The designer Piero Rosin studying a new male silhouette, high pants and comfortable linen shirts remind us that both Rupert Everett at the height of its elegance and beauty, playing the role of American dandy in Venice The Comfort of Strangers. A walk style in a summer sunset, where white, the cakes, blue and finally the original costumes chocolate, reinforce a classic style, both quiet and cool, always in trend, characteristic signature.
What seems to me: I found a consistent collection, well-founded and particularly well adapted to the life of your real customer. I liked the overall look - when it goes all the styling in the same color - betting on colors "baby" like pink, blue or pure white. I was struck by the profusion of jackets counting on is aimed at summer dress but realized that much and are essential in some male sectors. I also liked the low rise shorten costumes but without being tobilleros and especially that bet on a trend increasingly seen - but still controversial - as is to mix business suits with sandals.
Highlight: They have very clear the kind of man that defines your brand, I know by heart and They are able to do "forward" with little details while maintaining its style and tone. Not carried away by "choubisnes lights" and try to present catwalk something away from what we can find in the day-to-day buyer.
To improve: It is that man Emidio Tucci never goes "real sport"? No, I do not mean that "sport" of chinos and shirt sleeves rolled up. I missed a tad more relaxed look - without falling into the tracksuit, of course - but some good jeans with good shirt, nice and fresquita.
Mis looks favoritos:
the detallazo: ORIOL. Perfectly defines the brand values: classic without being stale, professional, consistent and durable, close and iconic. Opening and closing the show with him – and that puppy so cute - got us out everyone a Smile which is appreciated greatly in a parade!
Gran Canaria Moda Calida: Chelo Clo / Dapresa
What the brand says: SS17 MEN MFSHOW by The English Court began its second day with parades Gran Canaria Moda Calida. He participated in Chela Clo: A young firm mainly bathroom, enhanced by some add-ons. Its designer Jorge Toledo, It has inspired this time in various sports competitions retro, such as cycling, motorcycling, JetSki, Windsurf, volleyball etc, in the splendor of the years 90 in California, Vintage style nourished the time, embodied in the combination of acid colors with pastel and pixelando some of his designs. The other participant firm has been Dapresa, who has filed a bathroom collection in black playing with the sensuality of men and women, creating combinations with provocative connotations. Destructured cuts parts bath and combined mesh, term, neoprene and lycra.
What I like my: Two collections showing perfectly the progress of male clothes bath begins to leave your comfort zone with colors and riskiest forms.
Highlight: Swimwear becomes an imperative to consider. It is also the most difficult because the guy does not get "hide" some other little defect. That is why it is essential that brands have to think of us to find even more variety.
To improve: Clearly, we must think about the parade as it is - a pure and sample the best that can bring the brand - but what will happen to some of those outfits took to the real world? I assure you that some of those pieces with the slightest lorza lose all, todísima, the force.
Mis looks favoritos
the detallazo: Although the beginning of this post I told you that I was going to tell the gory of all parades, as you can see by the photos, here a few hairs I can tell But enough signals! I love that you have tattooed models, but I miss in any fault with pelito.
What the brand says: Soloio presented his collection inspired by the summer as initiation into adulthood. El amor, Germany, individuality, responsibility for our actions, group membership, storm the awakening of adolescence halfway between tenderness and wildness. All this vital process, SOLOiO creates its own aesthetic imagery through the sense of color and the evolution of print, marking the language of your collection , CAMP, which is governed by the watchful gaze cotton in all its possibilities, from piqué to poplin, leads with skin and silk evolution of its proposal for next spring-summer.
What seems to me: I found a very nice collection but with some risk - I hope that solvent then store expanding the options, with such a little long pants - and I do not know if the Spanish man is ready to face the total printed proposing look at the parade. With a printed capable of falling in love at first sight, materials adapted and very juveniles, Soloio gives a blow on the table to vindicate their difference They're not a brand of menswear as all other!
Highlight: Estilismo incredible work carried out by Natalia Ferviú who managed to provide continuity and character to all outputs + the soundtrack totally successful and brought us a smile on more than one occasion.
To improve: We must not forget that the range of potential buyer and fashion conscious man is found in a complicated age. Are you prepared to answer collection forties or left unattended any age range? As I said before, I hope this solvent in the shop at the end with more options under the same designs).
Mis looks favoritos:
the detallazo: Ins - and props - managed to promote the idea thousand Soloio intended to convey with these summer youth. The backpacks, hats and stuffed animals carrying models ipso facto moved us to this crucial moment in the life of many people in the transition from childhood to adulthood.
What the brand says: The fascination with the classics again the starting point for the Spring Summer 2017 of Tenkey. En esta ocasión, whose parade was presented at the Club Alma, reference is 'Brideshead', Evelyn Waugh's work that led to one of the most sublime series for male style history. As then, the result of combining more formal clothes with notes sport have allowed the creation of very disparate sets together, with a wide range ranging from three-piece suits with matching vest embroidered hooded letter to the torso. Stripes take on a more formal role, in order to create elegant and structured sets that break natural fabrics such as cotton or linen, all to recreate the romantic and full of decadent environment that inspires the eccentricity of the work of Waugh.
What seems to me: Making the "basic" something desirable is not easy and Tenkey get it in this collection which advocates
Highlight: relaxed elegance as concept exploit is essential. En 2016 when dress codes seem ever more unnecessary, you have collections like this that claiming that relaxation can be elegant too - and conversely that elegance can be relaxed - does much good to menswear.
To improve: How to present the collection has come out showing usual "models- Mannequin "still. The basic idea is great because it allows you to enjoy the details and see the clothes at our own pace, but when done in places where there is not much space can be challenging to see among people can make the experience not as the brand had desired.
Mis looks favoritos
the detallazo: Flipflops pool with serious and formal suits ... because who said the presenter informative look could not become trend?
What the brand says: MFSHOW Men by The English Court began its third and final day with the parade of Fox Haus, He has presented a collection inspired by the Pacific Coast. Despite soft palette prevail, in the three stages of the collection coexist bright and clean colors, complemented by bold prints that take us to the Hawaiian Islands in its first phase and the California coast in his last two fluids etapas.Tejidos, mostly linen, with variety of stripes stamped, textures and fabrics with solid colors flood the collection, which it is based on basic parts which are more experimental coexist with new proposals such as denim or twill, first introduced.
What seems to me: A simple collection, based primarily on comfort, the new male silhouette and the best fabrics to caress our body. I do not quite see references to "Pacific Rim" to tell us in the press release - except for a pair of outputs - but if comfort and relaxed style.
Highlight: Step a huge percentage of my life in pajamas, so see that Fox Haus ago based on underwear items but you could even take to the streets makes me immensely happy.
To improve: Further exploit "smart" designs like the green monkey, I think it's great, and I've missed a supplement to further enhance the staging.
Mis looks favoritos
the detallazo: Buttons and zippers disappear from most proposals and those not fulfill the function of imprisoning Hurray rubber waists and thin cord!
What the brand says: Lucas Balboa has presented his Spring-Summer 2017, which has two very clear sources of inspiration: the film "Death in Venice" by Luchino Visconti director and the symphonies of the Austrian composer and conductor Gustav Malher. Both represent a turning point both in creating garments as to develop a new script, whose main claim to illustrate the love story of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge. Asimismo, Fortuny master blue flowers and garden Marrakech future serve as a backdrop for this bet, postulated more serene and even easier, but with a much more powerful emotional charge than previous.
What seems to me: A very versatile collection, able to hold your hand through the different fields of tailoring. From the usual to advocating for it yourself to be different. I like that bet on different color ranges but perhaps mix colors with sconces in some cases it may be too bold.
Highlight: The man proposing Fox Haus is an educated man, read, sensitive and many related and that shows in clothes by details, finishes, forms and styling.
To improve: Maybe they do not need the same piece - or very similar – in several different colors, or if so, perhaps make the squad format (all together at once) so that the parade is put forth with exits that "we have seen".
Mis looks favoritos
the detallazo: The importance of supplements serves to maximize the look. Sometimes collides a bit of everything, but certainly throws a very specific message.
What the brand says: Felix Ramiro presented its proposal for next spring / verano 2017 with modern Indiana Jones, an adventurous man, a gentleman who committed the most traditional tailoring, forms risking, colors and fabrics. Various clothing lines formed by star like costumes, American or ceremonial garments, among which we chaqu with very special party frock coats and smoking, que, among many others, create a collection with different variants for each moment in the life of man. Fabrics like cottons, linen, cool wool, and brocades ranging from the most neutral colors, in different shades of beige, creams and navy blue, even the boldest shades and shiny satin finishes, with striking prints taking center stage in much of this collection.
What seems to me: Felix Ramiro I think it's a brand that makes it great as tailoring but has not finished assimilating the "fashion" concept or if you want to focus it: "runway". In this collection real efforts were to turn fashion classic tailored and - although in some cases was achieved - in other remained in a limbo that was difficult not only to fit into the speech the parade - enlivened with song Indiana Jones but I lost sense at the time they had just the first out in earth tones - but in the own brand image.
Highlight: He offered a huge variety of possibilities and that is great at proposing a collection, from classic to more modern options, more youthful or more "higher" so covering all possible ranges of buyers and not leave anyone without the possibility of getting a Felix Ramiro.
To improve: Being bold colors and prints mixing is fine, but it must be done with a little view so that it does not become a visual "punch". I praise the intention and desire but next needs to improve a tad mixing those elements that do not collapse between all.
Mis looks favoritos
the detallazo: Harnesses that opened the parade, with small fanny packs and storage areas or hooking things - inspired by Indiana Jones style they loved.
Como veis, It has been an issue of MFSHOW Men by El Corte Ingles comprehensive, where they have seen many types of men but with a common denominator, its taste for innovation. Although I missed some more urban approach what about the street fashion? With that we do not go in costume? We will have to wait for future editions for such brands enter! (and I hope to keep going and contándooslo!
I send you a picture of me during this MFSHOW Men so you can see how it would vestido.¡No me I took photos of the three days but could you see my outfits in Snapchat or Instagram Stories! But we go, In summary, giving priority to comfort and simplicity and above all trying to go it was very hot fresquito.
