Monika Ptaszek for Men S/S12

It’s a mix & match well put together: feminine see-through, lace and sheer (those lovely quirky tops looking like swinging 60’s meet alter-boy dress), punk elements (tartan jackets, trousers and shirts, studded embroidery on sleeves) and floral boots (boy, those perfect boots). Bright and colourful patchwork sweatshirts were very refreshing ingredient – polish razzle-dazzle. They were like a cheerful, vibrant, folk version of grey sporty ones (which by the way, in our home Poland are often associated with a beer & golden chain macho, or hanging out in the backyards).

So, there’s a lot going on in this collection, but somehow it looks cool and relaxed, pieces are layered efforlessly. Guys look a bit androgynous, and a lot rock’n’roll. Those ensembles have the swagger and sashay (about that, those boots again, how can you not strut?). We’re buying it all, the whole picture, with the make-up concept (adorable deep plum heart shape/sharp centre peak on lips), flirtiatous hair curls and sleek bobs. As you may find on official site, Monika Ptaszek prefers to design for men, but she suggests not to take the brand name too literally. It’s a boy & girl thing.
