Fashion Week 2013 at Marina Bay Sands: Shows We’re Excited About

This week we attended the Fashion Week 2013 (9-19 October) press preview. Here’s a rundown of the men’s shows we look forward to: Surrender, Burkman Bros and MCM. 

Surrender
Saturday, 12 October 2013, 7.30pm
Convention Hall F

Since its debut in Singapore in 2004, Surrender has established itself as the go-to purveyor of coveted artisanal brands and high street labels that feature a mix of mens and womens wear and accessories. Its numerous collaborations with artists and designers such as 3D (Massive Attack, Gio Estevez (Supreme), Christian Dada, Maison Kitsune, Casely Hayford, Ambush x G-Dragon and Maison Martin Margiela have no doubt had a hand to play in the brand’s visibility. Surrender boasts three retail spaces located in Singapore and Shanghai. Surrender will be showing its Fall Winter 2013 Collection titled ‘Traveler’s Series”, a showcase of luxury designer and high street labels curated from all around the world.

Burkman Bros

Convention Hall F

From working at Gap Inc. to winning the GQ Best New Menswear Designer in America award, the designers of Burkman Bros, brothers Doug and Ben Burkman, have come a long way. Taking their seasonal collection inspiration from their far-flung global travels, Burkman Bros fuses a casual American sensibility with a well-traveled point of view. Their bold prints, original bespoke fabrics and classic menswear essentials emphasize originality, style and ease.

Love it or hate it, we’re excited to see MCM‘s highly anticipated Spring/Summer ’14 collection entitled ‘Flower Boys in Paradise’. The collection is described as ‘epicene’, and that presents a strong indication of androgynous looks to feature throughout the show. We understand that the collection is inspired by a “kaleidoscopic imagination of the ‘ideal'”, which seeks to explore the parameters of ‘paradise’ in a symbiosis of the old and the new. The German luxury purveyor seeks to explore tensions inherent in gender-normative style and to challenge traditional delineations in fashion collections.

Fashion Week 2013 is open to the public. Tickets are priced at S$20 for single show; or a full-day pass priced at S$40; or a season pass priced at S$280. Tickets are available at www.marinabaysands.com/ticketing
