Menswear of an urban future

A future world but also our own, the backdrops in Wong Sim’s editorial Perplexed Mind could be an urban landscape from any time. But with Chrisna Sujatmiko’s styling of metallic jackets, holographic pants, sporty leather sandals and asymmetric cuts, the mood becomes one of futurism, real or imagined.

Model Fabio Toledo is the central character who suffers the ‘perplexed mind’, the streets offering no comfort to one who feels lost and lacking direction. While once he thought the future would answer all his questions, it arrived bringing nothing but silence. The empty urban settings seem not so much a cause but a reflection of his loneliness.

Pensive it may be but Sim’s editorial is also strong, visually and thematically. Aided by Sujatmiko’s grooming, giving eyebrows that slight futuristic twist, we’re left feeling like Toledo is a man not quite of this world.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
