Romain Kremer Deliciousness

Let me be clear in saying that I pretty much hate menswear. Close minded, I guess. Its sort of the same hate that I have for American sportswear, except its on a more international level.
However, when running my hands over Romain Kemer's A/W 08 collection a few days ago I put my bad sentiments to the side and fell in love. Aliens, deconstruction, sci-fi; all the important things in complete unison. There is a sense of playfulness in Kremer's pieces that is lacking (for perhaps commercialism reasons) in most menswear collection (Gareth Pugh's menswear was a debbie downer for sure).
These is the beautiful wonderful amazing things that I laid my hands on the other day from his A/W 08 collection, I want it all. Especially that backpack.

His SS 09 collection plays with a similar idea of deconstruction with the contrast of nude to neon and rawness contrasted with structuralism.

His latest AW 09 collection, I am bit hesitant about. But as always give me apathy, and you've won me over.

This Guy is just a bad Costume Designer. I Like his Winter 07-08 collection, well a jacket and a pair of pants from that collection. The clothes in the Winter 08-09 reminds me of a Dinner waiter that forgot his uniform and grab a shirt from a thrift store that closely resembled his. This collection personally is a bad 90's POP video. The green sweater looks like he was wondering around his studio and came across his Christmas tree, ripped some ornaments off and hot-glued them to a sweater. Then took some scraps from the black sweater and glued those on too. Over all 90's!!!
