Gold Lion

Winter might cry out for thick shadowed peacoats and layers of black fabric, cacooning us from the harsh winds. But Jeroen Van Tuylin introduces a metallic shimmer and strength to the season, even if the collection wasn't intended for Winter. The browns and blues look stained and aged, as if winter has left its' print on the clothes. It gives the tops an armour effect, shielding the models and emphasising masculinity. The trousers ripple like silver lakes, dipping us into a Winter fantasy rather than a harsh terrain. I particularly admire the subtle 'Gladiator' tone that comes from the armour shield vest, gold belts and rustic looking waistcoats. This yet again exudes masculinity and strength against the ice winds.
