Be yourself in Blend
Posted by: Phat Mama, 30-Oct-2009It’s time you guys take on a different look with Scandinavia’s fashion label Blend.
Blend is for the young and spirited, for guys who want to stand out in the crowd and yet look cool without going overboard.
Rooted in denim, Blend’s Autumn-Winter 2009 Collection features four design themes – Free and Easy, Daring Spirit, Classic Cool and Modern.
Free and Easy is all about bringing the great outdoors to the streets, matching the old with the new, wearing a well-worn tee over clothes designed in graphic patched appliqués and bold colors. This collection is about being vintage yet new.
Daring Spirit is described as a “colorful, freakish happy line of clothing designed for the optimistic rebel”. Hot pinks and mauve add fun to the colorful, “plastic-fantastic” graphics. Fabrics used are mostly dark and heavy.
Classic Cool comes in colors of cool black, jet gloss and dark drama. It is ultimately urban.
Modern carries an English accent, tailor-made with a rugged twist, woolen
trousers with faint windowpane checks, edgy prints, big cable-knit jumpers. Coats and blazers are given sleek lines and contemporary silhouettes in shades of brown, black, greys, deep purples and greens.
Blend is available at Robinsons, The Gardens.
