Menswear SS10 Preview : Ek Thongprasert

Bangkok born EK THONGPRASERT, studied fashion at the infamous Antwerp's Royal Academy after a cursus of architecture in his hometown. Thongprasert won the collection of the year awards at Trieste's ITS competition in 2007 establishing himself as the one to watch from the young asian designers, now for it's second time in Paris as part of the Fashion Flanders Institute showroom, Thongprasert presents "Meus Universitas" for menswear summer 2010.
"Meus Universitas" (my world) compares a media's world to the holy pope for christians, the idea of a total belief without doubts, communication media's absolut truth as a message from the holy book. A feeling close to the one of an innocent child put away from reality in a boarding school.
This collection's silhouette mixes classical men's wardrobe with element of Vatican's vestment, marionette and boarding school uniform. Fabrics are cotton, wool and polyester with special yarn embroidery on wool/modal jersey to reflect the metal embroidery texture found on antique christian vestment. The wooden rosary also becomes a key accessory, part of the garment.
