DOMINGO RODRIGUEZ SS16
For SS16 Domingo Rodriguez presents his menswear collection, a simplistic combination of masculine and feminine details.
Signature design aesthetics of a modern take on minimalism and luxury craftsmanship continue within the SS16 collection. Razor sharp pattern cutting of deceptively simple techniques create a clean, modern look.
The collection offers classic monochromatic colourways in a variety of new textures and finishes, providing a directional yet relaxed everyday look. This season is a play on masculine and feminine ideals by taking menswear staples such as the denim jacket, parka, tailored blazer and in floaty fabrications such as silk georgette and crepes, which skim the body highlighting the silhouette.
There is a sense of delicacy and softness to the collection, showcased with the sheer silk black button up shirt, which is balanced with the structure and hardware of the collection, shown with the custom summer weight leather jacket. There is also a sports mentality in the finishing of the collection with elasticated hems, button off hoods and metal hardware to create a balance to the softness of the feminine fabrics.
The core structure of Domingo Rodriguez continues to emphasize the quality that goes into the construction of each piece. The minimally cut fabric and double layered hems create a high fashion and high quality finish. The pattern cutting technique creates a sleek modern look with a seamless luxury finish.
