Presented during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam, this monster fashion collection celebrates self-expression and fantasy. Despite of the fashion industry's recent focus on minimalism and ambiguity, its wearable art experimentation is far from over.

Designers like Bas Kosters say no to subtlety and instead choose to express themselves in a way that is all their own. The Bas Kosters Fall/Winter 2015 collection boasts a blend of androgynous and monster fashions that are both artful and theatrical.

The complex menswear range draws inspiration from drag queen culture and features an array of masked monster fashions that double as wearable art pieces. These garments blend together surrealist and dreamlike imagery with memories of DIY craft projects that many of us made during our childhood.
