Sandor Lakatos Menswear FW 15/16
“Designing clothes is my art” – says Lakatos in a recent interview. The designer is infamous for his intolerance of fast fashion and poor quality, and it is safe to say that his new collection reflects this principle. Sandor added new prints and new fabrics (staying true to his signature minimalism and meticulously created detail work), and he focused on creating more variations of each classic item, resulting in a collection bigger than ever, with about 90-100 items to pick from. The starting point remains classic menswear: suits and suit separates, with new, three dimensional elements, ranging from minimalistic to haute couture lines.
The designer added some drop crotch suit pants to match the jackets, and some ‘street’ looks we have never seen from Sandor Lakatos Menswear: hoodies, sweatshirts and jumpsuits, for those who prefer comfortable streetwear to formal. There are also some heavy coats, lots of new jackets, hoodies, slacks, and some extremely cool pants and accessories.
As usually, Lakatos picked an artist friend of his to model the campaign: Andras M. Kecskes, an expressive dancer and pantomime artist. With his ‘weirdo’ look and breathtaking poses, he is the best person to embody the strict geometry of the new collection, as well as the cool, loose lines of Sandor’s new pieces.
