Do you think maybe there’s an equivalent of a rain dance for Indian Summers? Having grown accustomed to Dublin’s muggier weather this past week, I’m reluctant to see the temperatures plummet and the layering of every item of my wardrobe all at once – not as an avant-garde sartorial statement, but rather as a means of enduring the very chilly-on-the-willy weather that’s to come.
^ Domingo Rodriguez for ASOS AW 2011
That said, there’s always the luxurious comfort of Domingo Rodriguez‘s AW 2011 collection for ASOS to look forward to. Having collaborated with the online retailer last season for the first time, Scouser LCF grad Rodriguez returns to the partnership with a new offering of streamlined, sexy and entirely fuss-free pieces.
Concentrating on developing his cutting and finishing techniques, Rodriguez has removed side and shoulder seams, whilst ensuring seams which are included are fully enclosed in gross grain tape. That’s to say: this isn’t your average range of up-market basics.
For more on the collaboration, read an interview with the designer at ASOS’ menswear blog, The Rogue.
