The Shakkei collection at MQ Vienna Fashion Week was not only stylish, but we can rest easy knowing it’s almost 100% eco-friendly, as almost all of it is manufactured right here in Austria, and the remainder within the European Union.
It’s no easy feat to product a collection in such a manner but designer Gabriel is passionate about the collection being organic, and so he combines eco-friendly fabrics to make luxurious and fashionable clothes.
This season, he delves even deeper into menswear with some “Great Gatsby-esque” hats and suits, a spring ode to the roaring 1920’s. Plaid blazers, spring colors such as lavender and yellow, and beautiful patterns paired with crisp khaki’s ruled the runway. A beige trench pulls the line into spring, as well as a lavender one for some color pop. These retro chic suits and looks are not stuck in the past though, modern details and touches like a boxier suit jacket and tapered pants, keeping them right on trend.
