On Saturday evening Quoc Thang wowed us with his new menswear collection. It was well tailored, very wearable, cohesive and – unlike most other collections this week – it was a fall/winter collection.

Quoc introduced his brand new 3 x 3 x 3 concept based on the idea of a pair of pants, a top and a jacket. His designs, worn by models with wet faces and messy hair) told the story of an adventurer defying cold area’s in search of security and safety.

“It’s called A Place Over There (Een Plek Daarginds in Dutch) and – like all my collections so far – it has something to do with the vulnerability and transitory of life. My inspiration comes from conversations, exhibitions and every day things. I always write things down”, Quoc told us earlier.

The designs indeed looked like you could conquer any weather in them. Thick woolen coats, perfect pants tucked in shoes, and great jackets with hoodies and fur details. Shades ranged from multiple blues and greys to green (some of them slightly shiny).

For this collection Quoc Thang changed everything; his strategy, his philosophy and the way in which he built up the collection. And if you ask us, this turned out perfectly. Let’s hope this collection will lead to many new sales points for mister Thang. He sure deserves it.
