OBSESSION: ELIRAN NARGASSI
LIFECHANGING MENSWEAR. THIS IS MAJOR.
Elian Nargassi's "sQuaRe" SS13 Collection
When I first laid my eyes on Eliran Nargassi's debut SS13 collection, I was overwhelmed with emotion in the best way possible. While menswear is being reinvented in exciting and with more couture embellishments than ever on the runways of Milan and Paris Fashion Week, Nargassi's collection is similarly refreshing, relatable and relevant (the three Rs that I measure all collections with!).
A graduate of the Shenkar's College of Engineering and Design in Israel, Eliran managed to take a QR-inspired design and made it timeless by embedding it onto wearable silhouettes. I can't imagine any guy, whether he's classic chic or avant garde edgy, refusing the allure of such beautiful clothes. This is reinforced even more because of how each piece can stand alone as a separate. But I believe they're most powerful when worn as a whole -- just like that splendid sequined shirt and short combo.
I am very eager to see what's coming next in the house of Eliran Nargassi. If this is strong, debut collection is of any indication, I have a feeling it can only get bigger and better from here on out. Mark my words -- you saw and heard about Eliran first here on MYBELONGING!
