I recently wrote about YII, what seems only a couple of weeks ago. But he just came out with a very whimsical and fun SS/15 collection for men.
So I thought I share that with you guys.

Ai Wei Wei teamed up with Dover Street Market - Rei Kawakubo's concept store - and V Magazine for the artsy fashion editorial. The models are wearing brands like Hood By Air, Shaun Samson, KTZ, Phoebe English, Jaquemus and many more.
The artist referenced his 2006 Colored Vases sculptures, treating his own studio personnel and friends as models.
Writing for V from Beijing, Ai explained: "Pouring a color on an outfit... creates a midpoint between two conflicting ideas. Gravity and the shape of the clothes combine to create a unique moment. Using these cultural products as ready-made [objects] celebrates and reinterprets the intention of creativity. I think this act shows my respect toward their creativity."
I just came across this designer and just loved every silhouette. It reminded me a little bit of Margiela circa 1990's and of course just simply the nineties.
is a team of individuals who came together to create a powerful creative network outside of the established frame of the industry.
The Spring/Summer 2015 collection is sexy yet subtle and effortlessly chic. And may I just be a little cliché but it has this certain "je ne sais quoi".
PS: I'm in love with the never ending hem on those pants.
Dazed & Confused teamed up with the Toiletpaper magazine duo to transform Yohji Yamamoto Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. I love how surreal, saturated and funny it is.

Tell me a little about what you do…
I am a painter and an interdisciplinary artist. Every day i work with mediums including painting, drawing, writing, photography, textile and publishing . I also run the online shop project Bonjour Supermarket (www.bonjoursupermarket.com), for which i design and produce exclusive textile pieces. I recently had a solo show and positive participative piece in Tokyo and some of my artworks are part of a current group show at the Brunei Gallery in London. I also happen to sometime be working as a consultant and art director.
You have an incredible eye for beautiful things. What inspires your aesthetic?
Thank you very much for the compliment!
Mostly my journeys, i love traveling. I am fascinated and fond of learning about traditional objects, textiles and art, i believe these also inspire my aesthetic. Simple, Quality, Elegant and Fun, i would say those are the four by which I go.
What are five things you cannot live without?
I wouldn't say live without but just five objects i like having with me:
-An old photobooth of my father and myself
-A Mala my fiancé Jatinder gave me when we met
-The book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura
-The parfum Scent One: Hinoki by Monocle and x Comme des Garcons
-A little straw purse given by my grand mother, she herself got it from a trusted friend before she passed away.See more after the jump!
Tis the season of pumpkin everything and Wednesday Addams. Fall fashion looks from black, white and pumpkin spice.
Malaysian fashion designer Yii presents his first womenswear collection for Spring/Summer 2015. Playful prints and futuristic silhouettes is what draws me to this collection.
Entitled 4 Years of Pito
The label examines the idea on how kids would be inspired by things around us instead of from an adult's point of view. The phrase "we never grow" has always been tagged along with the label since then.Photography by Zhong Lin
