Mike Vensel’s latest fall winter 2013 collection is built around the concept of oblivion, in which we have forgotten our natural selves in the modern world and as a result face human extinction through systematic self destruction. Using a strong palate of black with a few splashes of red and white, the collection explores contrast and form, playing with volume and structure along with fluidity and form to create a wardrobe that moves from day to night in a cozy costume made of the finest silks, rayons and ultra suede. Welcome to the new oblivious human experience, lets not forget our natural past, lets always look to nature for our way forward.
Made in the USA with love each garment is hand crafted of the finest materials with a careful attention to detail and a strong adherence to minimalist principals which eliminate most closures and tries to maintain the original structural weave patterns and self edges of the fabric. Each garment is created as a timeless iconic statement piece that can be worn for decades without loosing its design value in the context of modern life. Each collection is created to be worn with all previous collections creating a seamless wardrobe that allows the wearer to transcend the typical exploitive fashion machine which creates an destroys its design value season after season by creating temporary trends.
