First Look: Sebastic Autumn and Winter 2009/2010
Say the words "men's" and "lingerie" in the same breath and one is likely to conjure up an image of cross-dressing. Until recently that would be the only conjuration with any basis in concrete reality. Sebastiaan Kramer and Sjaak Hullekes, who studied at the Academy of Arts and Design in Arnheim, Netherlands(the school has also produced Lucas Ossendrijver and Viktor&Rolf) joined creative forces to bridge the gap between luxury and men's underwear with Sebastic.
While not the first to treat the subject in satins and silks, with this collection entitled "Adonis" they may be the first to do so from a high fashion point of view. They are pioneers in creating current shapes, and editing out annoying embellishments like logo printed waistbands. The rich, grown up color story is welcome too.
Sebastic makes their debut at WHITE homme in Milan and RENDEZ VOUS homme in Paris later this month.
