The Veiled Male: Craig Green Spring 2016

London men’s designer Craig Green continues to turn menswear on its head. For spring 2016, he combined strappy astronaut suits, Asian-style draping and wrapping, and what looked to be burqa scaffolding, outsized in the front and bare in the back.

Curiously, he also tweaked the nipple area — traditionally a no-go zone for men — with knotted dots and long streams of fabric. A suggestive and strangely alluring focus.

The collection seemed to a rebuke of old tropes and taboos, exactly the sort of attitude London excels at, hinting at a future unconcerned with gender codes and geopolitics.
