Backstage @ DANSHAN Spring/Summer 2019 – I Get So Emotional Baby
Exploring the nuisance of the modern male life with a focus on the broad spectrum of masculinity, design duo Danxiu Liu and Shanpeng Wong of DANSHAN wanted to emphasize an emotional man for S/S19. Photography by Karl Slater. Text by Lewis Robert Cameron.
Playing with boxy and oversized silhouettes, contrasted with sensual cut-outs exposing the male body, alongside silky shirts, loose legged trackies and hi-sheen, glossy fabrics. Showcasing sensibility, authenticity and vulnerability, whilst even letting the odd nipple loose. You’ve got my vote. Free that nipple!
Soft, feminine and reactive to the changing aesthetic in modern menswear, and indeed in the modern man’s everyday life, the DANSHAN man isn’t afraid to show his sensitive side. And that’s a man we can get on board with.
