“Grandma, what a big mouth you have…”
“All the better to eat you with, my dear!”
The 2013 Autumn-Winter 4-piece capsule collection from up-and-coming ‘Couture Menswear’ creators Vaughan-Smith takes their inspiration from the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood, with a contemporary, high-fashion edge.
The collection, titled ‘INTO THE WOODS’ features a suit with sleek, black fur arms and red lapels, and a bright red cape, surrounded with gingham trim. In this collection, the masculine blurs into feminine - shapes and colours that have previously not been used in menswear have been re-imagined and shown in a way that gives the appearance of luxe and original menswear.
Designer Daniel Vaughan commented, “I always thought that menswear was the perfect opportunity to showcase couture - it is always a misrepresented area of fashion and design, and has the scope and range to produce so much more.”
The capsule collection will be available exclusively to mr-porter.com, in late April 2013.
