Blurring the lines of tradition and practicality, RCA alumni Matthew Miller presented his autumn/winter 2011 collection both in Paris at the BFC's 'London Show Rooms' but also at London Fashion Week as part of Fashion East's Men day presentation.
The 2010/2011 McArthurGlen Spirit of Fashion Award recipient, introduced his own interpretation of masculinity through a collection that was inspired by German artist Joseph Beuys and travel in the twenty-first century. Still exploring the technological vs traditional impact of menswear design, Miller used traditional techniques that were complemented by the use of hi-tech and performance fabrics.
The Matthew Miller a/w'11 man prefers practical and functional clothing with an insertion of bright colour. Traditional duffel coats in melange wool get a re-vamp in vibrant blue and bold yellow with their toggles replaced with M33 carabiners, jersey t-shirts with military accents are insulated and the rope accessories are definitely innovative.
The future certainly looks very bright for Matthew!
