Summer 2011 is really kicking in in Belgium. The weather is great, people are going on holidays and of course the menswear 2012 collections have already been presented. One of I Love Belgium's favourites, jewelry designers MoutonCollet, presented their new collection Mad Safari.
Mad Safari is dedicated to desert warriors, inspired by a universe filled with sand dunes, hot sun and weapon wearing men. Military decorations and rank medalians are referenced within these heavy-duty pieces. Introducing tie-dyed fabric scarves, a remix of the kaffiyeh, is worm around the neck fixed with a braided chain link. Accompanying caps bring about a summery twist to classic MoutonCollet ideas.
Nude and grey leather is used in straps, holsters come pockets and braided bracelets and chains. Fabric appears in versions of black, light blue and white weaves, tiedyed with acids to a diluted effect. A wicked use of refined craftsmanship, edgy design and statement hat pieces, a classic MoutonCollet collection.
