Paul Bench

Paul is an incredibly talented designer who manages to both construct innovative yet wearable garments, as well as adhering to a powerful vision which runs through the show as an unidentifiable thread in much the same way as Miuccia Prada’s collections. His menswear often has a modernist and graphic element, and undertones of a slightly futuristic “boy from space” 1960’s vibe. I’ve been lucky enough to preview his collection for Spring/Summer 2012 and consider it to be his strongest yet, (due to be shown next week on September 20) particularly the abstract prints and pastel knitwear.
