Showing at Berlin Fashion Week for the first time, Thomas Engel Hart presented a collection that updated the mod aesthetic with a distinct military flourish. Entitled 'Constructive Restraint', slightly oversized silhouettes abounded with exaggerated utility pockets, drawstring fastenings and a color palette dominated by gray and black.

As a nod to subversion, a dressed-up mod aesthetic prevailed; oversized gingham patterns, a confident catwalk swagger and aggressive skinheads ensured Thomas Engel Hart retained his distinctive, instantly-recognizable edge.

Implications - As opposed to a focus places upon female imagery, the Thomas Engel Hart's Spring/Summer 2011 Collection has a focus on male identity. The minute touches of masculinity placed within these oversized clothing pieces are simply refreshing -- for men and women alike.
