Claude Maus’ vision of Spring/Summer 2010, as one might expect, is quintessentially Melbourne. That is, more black than a Nordic metal convention, more layers than an onion and the understated androgyny of a Pedro Almodovar film. You’d also expect those design elements to languish in the warmer months but such is the appeal of Rob Maniscalco’s romanticized street wear, this Summer, we’d happily sweat it out with him.
We could envisage Maniscalco’s collection in a True Blood/Gossip Girl hybrid where fashionable Vampires went to underground New York City clubs and listened to minimal German techno. In other words diaphanous layering staples and transitional day-night pieces with a goth-chic snarl and inner-city utility. All of a sudden we want everything but the leather jacket in a Claude Maus collection.
