Mik Cire Reinvents the Wheel
By Liz Black, September 13th, 2010
Season after season, Menswear tends to either show a lot of similar things, (how many different variations can a lapel be?), or off-the-wall creations that almost no man would dare wear in polite company. But, instead of being bored or confused at the Mik Cire show, the audience was treated to masculine layering, tailored grunge and the invention of a new pant style for men.
With a dropped-crotch reminiscent to a harem pant, a slim knee-length fit and impeccable tailoring, Mik Cire effectively gave men a brand new style of pant that even the most fashion shy could pull off. “We just need a new silhouette,” the designer of Mik Cire Eric Kim explained, “I definitely think it’s time, it’s been stale for the last ten years; it’s time to move up to something new.”
Come Spring Men will finally have a new and interesting, but not too over-the-top pant style to wear. Instead of donning graphic t-shirts or plain button downs, we suggest you take a cue from the designer and top off your unique pant style with layered slim cardigans and paper-thin leather jackets with draped collars.
