Vetements is a three-season-old label based in Paris. The brand is headed up by a collective of alternative designers and ex-Margiela designer Demna Gvasalia who was selected as a finalist of the 2015 LVMH Prize.
His last autumn/winter 15 collection is out to surprise as Vetements' signature is made by distorted wardrobe classics. This German designer is building his reputation for his particular approach to fashion, cleverly mixing luxury craftsmanship and underground inspiration. The main Vetements' mission is to let the garments he designs speak for themselves. Outrageous volumes, asymmetric sportswear, dared overlapping and anti-conformism can be chosen to describe the latest collection.

Yii, designer based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Yii graduated from Raffles Design Institute in 2011. 'Despite my morbid personality, I always had a kid's heart , I just kept it in the drawer somewhere' , with a mischievous smile drawn on his face. The clothes are ultimately inspired by imagining the world through a child’s eyes and the end result is a total juxtaposition: traditional tailoring is deconstructed and rebuilt, the end result being a combination of classic designs and rebellious innovation. Custom fabrics, a vintage-themed colour palette and Japanese prints are combined to produce unique designs.
Yii Ooi designs are available in Hong Kong (Off the Wall), Paris, (Usagi), Singapore (Shop the Mag) and Tokyo (Wut Berlin).

Unbuttoned shirts over long-sleeve tops tucked into high-waisted wide leg pants, detachable skirts into jackets, earings, with their gawky silhouettes and their bony faces, the men on FW2015 Parisian catwalks kind of defied conventional norms of manly beauty and reminded Egon Shiele's or Howard Tangye's distorted and elongated men.
