Scandinavian menswear brand Tonsure is giving denim a new international outlook this fall with their range of classic yet forward-thinking clothes for the modern man.
While the workwear trend remains the core theme for many of todays menswear denim labels, a small group of progressive designers are pushing the fabric in a much more polished and refined directions. One example of this is newly launched Danish label, Tonsure. Debuting in native Copenhagen this fall for Gallery trade show, designer Malte Flagstad showcased his selection of quiet handcrafted designs. An MA menswear graduate from Central St Martins, Flagstad went onto refine his design talent at renowned Parisian label, Maison Martin Margiela. His time at the design house has clearly made an impression on his labels aesthetic with his stunning collection of discreetly cool designs.
For Fall 14, Flagstad juxtaposes the opposites of sharp tailoring and softer technical sportswear. A small edit of denim pieces tie in with this theme with concept cut baseball tees, sleeveless denim jacket, and tailored jean – each of which features silent details like subtle shredded seams, fused fabrics and concealed selvedge details, all lendind towards the brand’s autonomous and simplistic Scandinavian style.
