Mevan Kaluarachchi SS2014 Amsterdam Fashion Week
Willem de Kooning Academy graduate (in 2005) Mevan Kaluarachchi presented himself for the first time today during Amsterdam fashion week. The range of menswear items he showed – named Wardrobe – was not just a SS2014 collection, but included looks for both summer and winter. Pieces for all seasons, so to say. From shorts and tees to jersey pants and trenchcoats. Sloughy shirts had special buttons or collars and were longer in the back than in the front. Most of them were loose and airy, even sheer almost. The color palette was a perfect fix of shades suitable for menswear; from red and turquoise to grey and navy. Colors that can be worn all year round, like the clothes that, according to Mevan, are qualitative, comfortable and will last. His creations are meant to stay, let’s hope Mevan is a keeper too!
