Aesthetics of subversion (punk) mixed with sport and street
Tiger of Sweden presented elegant-sleek silhouettes for 'Poetic-Punks' (male and female) during the shows Spring/Summer 2014 on 28 August 2013 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Stockholm.
Tiger of Sweden's 'Poetic-Punk' is dressed in elegant tailored, slim silhouettes. The look makes think of the straight lined and subversive aesthetics of 1980ies new-wave punk mixed with tones from sportswear and streetstyle (examples 1 2) of the 2000ies.
fig. original: The images show a woman and a man - both wear tops with transparent stripes; she wears a black dress with top made from transparent striped fabric below sky-metallic grey bomber jacket; his top looks like hers - he wears it under a petrol-blue classical tailored jacket, combined with anthracite-grey straight cut trousers. The pure and sleek Scandinavian designs for men's and women's wear are from the new 'Poetic-Punk' collection by Tiger of Sweden for Spring/Summer 2014. The collection was presented on 28 August 2013 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Stockholm. Photos provided by Tiger of Sweden; (C) Kristian Löveborg.
