Your Space A/W 2011/12.

Your Space encourages us to strip back to the necessities in life, to stop with the clutter and to concentrate on what we really need. The focus is on function, with storage and self-sufficiency being paramount.

A sense of order is encouraged; rather than letting your environment spiral out of control, focus more on grouping and discipline. Your Style wants you to decide which clothing is practical to your needs and stick with it.  

Flesh coloured tones and cuts highlighting the muscles of the body make the clothes and the wearing become one. No longer are the clothes solely there as something to cover the skin, but become a part of it.

The fabrics used help with this illusion of the wearer and the clothing becoming one. Fabrics like sheer-crepe and mesh mimic the skin and drape around the wearer enabling the boundaries to be blurred.

Another aspect of Your Style is that of selective privacy. With online social networking playing with the idea of privacy Your Space plays with the idea of invisibility and absence – to disappear into an environment. Again, fabric and colour are used to achieve this. Flecked particles and woven patterns create a kind of cloak which enable people to blend in with their environment. 

Your Space encourages people to think about themselves, to think about their place in the world and how they can maximize their output through a heightened sense of self.

Jil Sander Autumn/Winter 2011.



Samuel Beckett

Never mind his poetry, plays and novels. Beckett’s style oozes distinction and brooding intelligence.


“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

Mason Jung

Mason Jung is a men’s tailor. His work reimagines traditional techniques with new ideas and form. He merges traditionally tailored pieces to form a new single garment. A suit may at first sight appear to be made from separate pieces, but with a closer look the lapel and shirt merge into one, or two different jackets will be stitched together to create a new garment.
