Awkward: Flaunt your flaws with SS16 menswear checks and drapes

Feeling awkward in social exchanges? Then you are part of a new group of millennials who acknowledge and own their awkwardness. So re-claim all those self-deprecating terms and flaunt your flaws. Because Awkward is of course the new, well, thing to be.

Awkward is the inspiration by this new SS16 menswear shoot by photographer, Armando Branco. With models dressed in oversize bombers and shorts, against nerdy tartan checks the combination is uneasy in an instinctively and irrepressible kind of way. Focussing on emerging designers from The Netherlands, we are loving the draping menswear trouser and shorts from Tamara van Klooster, and the combination of check prints with mesh by Merel Weijgers, both recently graduated from HKU University of the Arts in Utrecht.
