WEAR: Ruben Galarreta, psychedelic print and streetwear extraordinaire, presented his SS16 menswear collection this week in Madrid making his sensational thirst for all things vibrant and oversized known in a heartbeat.Streetwear has been given a new life and with it comes a new purpose via Galarreta’s Indian tribal infusion, mixing festival king vibes alongside athletic elements and androgynous undertones. Offering up organza embroidered sweatshirts in a rainbow of Merman palettes, velvet balloonesque bombers, monochrome Aztec patterns, t-shirt dresses and the occasional noble robe. All paired effortlessly with body chains, nose rings, jewel draped faces and the odd Galarreta harness.In conclusion, an army of majestic urbanites, in the tribal works of Galarreta’s glory.
WHEN: V MFSHOW Madrid Fashion Week.WHY: Ruben Galarreta you are my hero. You basically invaded my mind and created everything I love about the world of menswear and put it in one incredible collection.
<3FAVOURITE LOOK: Everything!!! If I had to pinpoint one as being my all time favourite, I’d go with the oversized black bomber jacket, the athletic sheer trousers and the phenomenal gold chain and pearl jewels draped on the model’s face.
