The 'Y Project' Autumn/Winter 2013 menswear collection by Yohan Serfaty is dark and has a slightly dystopian feel to it. The collection, entitled 'Chairman,' recently made its debut at Maison des Métallos during Paris Men’s Fashion Week.

It's no surprise that the collection has political undertones, as Serfaty previously studied political sciences before deciding to make the foray into the world of fashion. Chairman expresses the "illusion of social power and its consequences on human behaviour."

The utilitarian looks are strict-looking and militaristic, constructed in deep, sombre shades of grays and blues. Serfaty plays with deconstructed garments and minimal detailing like pockets and buttons to create these sharp-looking silhouettes. To further emphasize the militaristic vibe, male models sport headwear that gives them permanently and prominent, disproving brows.
