When it comes to debuting your first fashion feature, Leon Emanuel Blanck sure knows how to capture an audience. The menswear designer perfectly curated an unabashedly futuristic creation using gas masks and mundane imagery. The designer takes an unorthodox approach to designing by draping and molding leather to the body—piece by piece.
From diagonal zippers to distressed leather, the collection showcases looks created from the ashes of a sci-fi thriller. By ignoring traditional seam work, the designer is able to accomplish his goal of building a dark and gloomy lookbook. As Leon Emanuel Blanck uses minimal lighting and dark imagery to convey his Fall/Winter 2014 collection, one can not help but notice the simplicity of his work. With a budding first collection in the books, this designer offers plenty of exciting promise in the fashion world.
