admin | On 20, Apr 2012
After a tremendous start to the 2nd instalment of Men’s Fashion Week (MFW) Singapore 2012, organised by Fide Productions, with Title Sponsor, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, on Wednesday, 18th April, five Korean designers took the limelight on the second day (19th April) with Beyond Closet, Vandal, Resurrection, D Gnak and General Idea at the Sands Expo and Convention Center Hall F.
With Korean designers being known for working with high quality materials as well as intricate stitching and detailing which allows them to stand out, Beyond Closet kicked off Day 2 of MFW Singapore 2012 with an entertaining F/W 2012 presentation that featured shades of blues and reds, that were staples in the collection, with most looks featuring various types of pullovers that exuded boyish charm and collegiate looks.
Vandal was up next with a sombre, all black presentation with an interesting play on soft fabrics, creating intricate designs from asymmetrical jackets to draping and pleating, the looks were completed with identical cone hats worn by all models.
Resurrection was next in line as the collection featured military meets sophisticated goth chic. Intricate designs combined with naturally falling silhouette with volume and ‘drop’ shoulder gave an accent of the look of the ‘Transformational Military Look’.
Following the Resurrection show, internet sensations, Sungha Jung and Megan Lee took to the stage again, performing to an appreciative fashion crowd with Sungha showing deft fingers on the guitar and Megan showcasing her powerful vocals.
Up next was D.GNAK’s A/W 12 collection inspired by Charlie Chaplin, featuring an updated take on classic suits where varied cuts and additional flaps and panels were added. Injecting a quirky and fun element into the show was the use of cane sticks with models jumping and mimicking Charlie Chaplin, sending a light-heart and fun mood in the air.
Titled ‘After Games’ inspired by the 1968 Winter Olympics, General Idea closed the night with its highly-wearable and sporty A/W 12 collection with performance-ready, padded menswear for the fit and fashionable in quilted fabrics, kneepad detailing and fur collars.
The 2nd night of Men’s Fashion Week Singapore ended on an ultra-high note with K-pop star, Se7en, taking to the stage, belting out his hit songs and also new single to the delight of his fans! With energetic dance moves and precision timing with back-up dancers, the whole hall of fashionistas were up on their feet waving and dancing to Se7en’s encore song. Many were left impressed both by Se7en’s showmanship and the spectacular staging and lighting that transformed the fashion runway into a concert stage.
