Bespoke To A Higher Degree: Marlon Gobel Spring/Summer 2015 Men's Collection Review

Bespoke To A Higher Degree:  Marlon Gobel Spring/Summer 2015 Men's Collection ReviewThe idea of the six million dollar man was pretty farfetched for the 80s.  I mean, a man being given a pricy dose of bionic prowess after skydive crash-landing into a tree? While highly experimental and grossly expensive, what seemed like science fiction to us then seems much more plausible today.  This is especially true when we see individuals like Oscar Pistorius and the strides made with prosthetic medicine or even stem cell research.  As we progress and experiment, we learn more about what we can actually accomplish through integration of technology and one of the most organic, evolving and complex experimental subjects; the human body.Bespoke To A Higher Degree:  Marlon Gobel Spring/Summer 2015 Men's Collection ReviewBespoke To A Higher Degree:  Marlon Gobel Spring/Summer 2015 Men's Collection ReviewBespoke To A Higher Degree:  Marlon Gobel Spring/Summer 2015 Men's Collection Review

Models filed onto a laboratory styled staging area and were prompted by a lone female lab technician who appropriately checked off each specimen as fit for the social and fashionable arenas.

As if to protect the newly capable human form, the models were adorned in highly wearable ready-to-wear apparel in fabrics from durable stretch nylons and cotton canvases to body-molded cashmeres and soft neoprenes.  The silhouettes, like moto jackets, bombers, trim dress shirts and cropped cuffed trousers ran through the gamut of comfortable menswear exploring how cut, trim placement and even color play roles in enlightened male's selections.  With the ideas of human advancement surrounding transhumanism, Mr. Gobel made a case of what the enhanced and enlightened male specimen chooses to wear to be the best himsel.  The allusion proposed is that these articles of clothing create a balance with the wearer by congruently leaving his body equipped to be protected, agile, suitable, current, ready and able.  What the clothing does for the modern body and the modern male psyche is the technology.Bespoke To A Higher Degree:  Marlon Gobel Spring/Summer 2015 Men's Collection ReviewBespoke To A Higher Degree:  Marlon Gobel Spring/Summer 2015 Men's Collection ReviewBespoke To A Higher Degree:  Marlon Gobel Spring/Summer 2015 Men's Collection Review
