D.GNAK Catwalk Review

Renowned male model Luke Worrall opened the show

After successful shows and presentations in Seoul, New York and L.A, D.GNAK, made their London Fashion Week debut today, kicking off this season’s menswear displays at Vauxhall Fashion Scout. The Korean based fashion label, (which read backwards spells the founding designers name; Kang Dong-Jun) presented us with an array of high tailored menswear, mixing smart sophistication with contemporary casual.

For SS ’11, D.GNAK focuses on the hectic, busy and stressful lifestyles of a workaholic male. Ink spot prints on polo shirts, ties bursting through jacket pockets and untucked pinstriped shirts creates an intentional messy and unkempt look, representative of the overworked.

A muted colour palette of navy blue, smokey grey and camel beige was featured on a selection of ruched-leg chinos, double breasted capes and tailored waistcoats. Asymmetry was another key style seen at D.GNAK this morning, with uneven lengths to white cotton shirts as well as one-sided lapelled suit jackets.

To close the show, an army of models invaded the runway, all sporting the same grey and white, linen pyjama combos: a perfect end to a long days work!
