Escher & Menswear

i tend to forget that Escher actually did other work besides drawing hands and relativity. his tessellation designs are quite beautiful – i’ve been wanting to pair them with something interesting for some time now.

well i don’t know about you guys, but the street style that’s been snapped at the recent menswear shows in milan and paris have been more fascinating to me than anything else fashion related in recent weeks. the men in particular are so striking and daring in their outfit choices and sartorial combinations (though of course not “daring” at all in fashion circles – merely to us ordinary folk). sometimes i wish men who aren’t in the fashion industry would be more flamboyant and adventurous in the way they dress, without worrying about what people might think. go forth!

    That old guy is amazing! Great idea for a post, love the pairings. I never knew Escher did such great patterns either.

    I miss Escher! I love how you matched the prints with his drawings – I would never think of doing that. I love menswear!

    I love the pairings, but can’t help thinking that the Escher tessellations would make such beautiful printed fabrics themselves!

    great post! I’m loving the patterns next to the photos, really beautiful. yesterday i saw a man in clogs and wondered why i don’t see more stylish men where i live….then i remembered where i live and everyone is always in their swimming suit and flip flops :)

    If I were a man, I would wear Escher printed fabric.
    This is a brilliant idea.
    Perhaps you should look into designing mens fashion prints.
    Great Post!
