Known for blurring the lines between menswear and womenswear, Stephanie Hahn showed her Spring Summer 2015 collection for 22/04_Hommes on the first day of the Paris menswear calendar.
Evolving from an obsession with musical subcultures and modern art, the collection consists of many items in color blocking and volume variations. Relaxed fit suits and more casual items like bomber jackets were toned down with slippers and Vans sneakers.
Apart from that, the models were accessorized with belt bags and headbands, turning the looks into sportswear-inspired outfits. Womenswear influences can be found in the sheer printed tops, pastel shades of William Turner and colorful satin details.
Shirts and tops with prints created by Mark Thompson and Jo Simpson (both based in London) were the absolute stunners of the show.
It was the proportions that disappointed. Waistcoats that were either too long or too small, trousers being too oversized and shorts that were just long enough to be seen worn underneath a trench coat. The show presented some nicely done logo printed and basic items, but the overall look did not succeed to impress. A shame, because the initial idea was refreshing and unique, but the outcome did not succeed to be innovative.
