At first glance, you might not understand how the Wrk-Shp AW11 collection could possibly be inspired by architecture; however, it isn't difficult to pick up on this theme upon closer inspection, as each outfit features rather classic lines and tailoring with hints of quirky cuts.

The reason the Wrk-Shp AW11 collection is so influenced by architecture is because it happens to use materials often found in such structures. These materials include concrete, wood, metal, latex paint and tyvek, which is often used for waterproofing.

Designed by Los Angeles-based Airi Isoda, the Wrk-Shp AW11 collection is aptly titled 'Building Clothes.' The marriage of architecture and fashion is stunning in this line simply because it is a subtle bridge between the two.
