The first menswear collection we saw this season at Berlin Fashion Week was by Ivan Mandzukic, whose SS14 collection made a strong impression on us already. For AW14 he drew inspiration from Alejandro Jodorowskys classic “Der Heilige Berg” from 1973. It’s interesting how Ivan transforms his initial ideas into little details that are subtly attached to his collections. Looking at it in terms of fashion as a form of art, his inspirations don’t speak “loud” enough through the pieces – but at the current state of menswear, this is just natural. His collection splits the difference between precise and casual with a creamy and soft colour palette.
