Style Salvage puts us onto the work of Nicolas Petrou, and his new label PETROU\MAN, with a peek into upcoming offerings for Spring/Summer 2011. Working with an eclectic mix of materials, the collection beautifully meshes together through the delicate use of hand-sewn madras fabrics, soft denim, and tribal prints that undoubtedly make for some great Spring garments. Offered below is a bit more insight into the line from designer Nicolas Petrou, along with a preview of what’s in store for the upcoming season.
As workwear and heritage lifestyle make way for vintage surf inspiration, Nicolas Petrou combines them all in one unique form with his spring/summer 2011 PETROU\MAN collection. Washed fabrics and hand sewn madras prints are combined with twill and high-tech touches to maximize garments’ breathability and sportswear fusion. Soft denim suiting, pleated trousers, and 50’s inspired tribal prints cut proportions in a manner that defies tradition.
