ONPARADE. 2010.11

Rene Gurskov’s menswear sensibilities have mashed with the demands of politic dressing, and it’s never looked better.

The FW10 collection carries the uniform essence without appearing kitschy; not an easy feat for a fledgeling label needing to turn as many heads as possible. Gurskov has designed the marching uniform for the modern gentleman and remains fresh by fusing 3 looks together; sport , uniform, greaser and ultimate dandy.

The loose trouser marks the beginning of trend death for pin thin leg cuts, and all male genitalia breaths a sigh of relief. Choice pieces include the perforated dual tone trouser (shown below on two models), and bottoms which fit as a casual jodhpur.
