« CAKE »
Fall/Winter 2021 explores the visual identity that has been shaped by the way we dressed –
or have been dressed by our mothers. It is a refection of things that have been lost and
garments that have never been forgotten. In our dreams, we stand in front of our childhood’s
closet picking out the pieces we want to wear to school. In our bedrooms, we gaze at mail
order catalogue mannequins and late night TV programs. In our fantasies, we combine our
re-imagined wardrobe with an adult-content-way of dressing. The remembrance of childhood
is a playful and happy place for grown-up men to rediscover where the heart is.
Key pieces feature naive cake paintings by Scott Csoke reworked in the brand’s atelier as
mixed-media couture knitwear, hand-embroidered with ‘emotional stress’ statements.
Corduroy ensembles, DIY denim, paisley prints and kid’s toy appliqués drawn by Humberto
Cruz quote real-life memories. Furthermore, the infamous ‘piss stain’ pants from
Lazoschmidl’s very frst collection entitled “Grand Poop” (2014) makes a return – as well as
the butterfy, this time laser-cut into leather pieces.
