There’s hope guys – Francisco van Benthum
There’s really hope for all those young men searching for great, modern clothes! Francisco van Benthum – for the first time showing under his own name instead of WOLF – presented a very mature yet cool menswear-collection inspired by Dutch fishermen and sailors. HOPE is the theme of his new autumn/winter ’08-’09 collection, and it seems this guy is ready for his international debut in Milan. Highlights: razorsharp suits. beautifully soft knitwear, airy coats and a great mix between sportswear and uniforms.
