In October I attended Greta Constantine‘s Spring/Summer 2010 fashion which featured the premiere of GC’s menswear label, Ezra Constantine.
“Ezra is kind of a harder edge type of clothing line for men,” said Anita Clarke of the blog I Want I Got (whom I interviewed after the show). “It’s more directional, more edgy, not the type of thing that all men are going to wear but it’s a good mix to what we normally see from any menswear designers in Toronto.”
The show was held in the humongous garage of an Audi dealership which enhanced the streamlined ruggedness of the menswear collection.
Well the lookbook has hit my inbox and it follows the rough and tumble theme that was seen on the runway.
“With a collection inspired by the ‘gang’, Stephen Wong and Kirk Pickersgill take their client on a dark, perilous journey through the hostile life of those that wake when you sleep and disappear with morning light. In a world consumed with fear and instability, Ezra Constantine offers its clients a collection of 20th century armour. Both contemporary and dark, utilitarian and restless the pieces form the uniform for the man of tomorrow.“
I absolutely love those leather motorcycle pants and the entire lookbook reminds me of Fight Club with Brad Pitt and Edward Norton (one of my favourite movies). I am very excited to see the growth and evolution of Ezra Constantine.
