Mexican designer Diego Zúñiga returns this Fall/Winter 2013 with MUTATE. The starting point is the beetle, an insect that throughout the history has been an inspiration for the industrial design, architecture and the military world. With eight all-black looks, MUTATE is characterized by oversize pieces with taylor quality and sporty touches, it surprises us with dynamic and original cuts, mesh details, and for the first time in the brand’s history, there is a couple of functional accessories (cap and backpack) to create an outfit that reflects the concept perfectly.
The collection? Wide-cut blazers with relaxed lapels , sweaters with long and short wide sleeves, pants with big cargo-like pockets and, short wide pants. The textures reflect inspiration and are mixed with the designer’s characteristic black-over-black detail. The fortress, intellect, routine, and strength of the contemporary men is what emerges from this proposal from Zúñiga.
