Much to my surprise, actor Antonio Banderas, will be releasing a collaborative collection on August 10th, 2016 with Selected Hommes, a Scandinavian company whose wears can be from ASOS to Urban Outfitters. The collection is set to release tomorrow, so get ready to shop for this limited collection.
The award winning actor turned designer began design courses at London’s Central Saint Martins, which is the fashion equivalent of Yale. Multiple noted fashion designers such as Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Riccardo Tisci have all learned their craft attending this institute. What I find interesting is why at this moment Antonio has decided to release a menswear collection. Why did he not begin releasing his own clothing collections when he was in the stages of releasing Antonio Banderas fragrances. Anyways, the look of this collection will give us an example of how far he is in his courses, and how well his craft for design has developed.
What I love about this collection is how it sticks very much to what I think about when I think about Antonio Banderas. He has released male fragrances in the past, and they stick to his brand, classic and sexy. He does not far away from his true brand in this collection. He stays true to classic menswear silhouettes such as wool-top coats, sharp suits, and polo shirts. He also doesn’t try to design crazy pieces, he sticks to the classics, and puts his own twist on them.
The images above are a few of the new pieces from the actors collection, scheduled to be released August 10th, 2016. You can see the classic male silhouettes, and how well they fall on the body. Another note, are the colors in this collection. Most of the colors are grey, blues, blacks, and whites. These colors are very masculine, and can be paired well together, ultimately creating a strong, classic, and masculine look.
