Villain Summer 2014 Collection
Young London menswear label Villain has launched its print-heavy high summer collection. The brand, which will celebrate its tenth birthday next year, is relying on tropical design statements for the warmer months.
T-shirts, vests, shorts and shirts all carry motifs, ranging from palm trees and other florals to snakeskin and polka dots.
As well as separates, the design team has create two matching shirt and short combinations, seen worn in an image exclusive to FashionBeans.
Despite the strong approach, Villain has maintained the ethos of minimal branding it has held since starting in 2005.
The new range is in stark contrast to the AW14 line, which took inspiration from industrial environments, with concrete greys, metallic reds and rust browns.
According to the firm, each piece has been created to give the wearer “a unique personality… one that evolves each season with the mood and energy of the city which inspires it”.
Villain was founded in east London by a Danish designer and a British fashion consultant. In addition to clothing, it also produces accessories such as belts.
The high summer collection from Villain is available to buy now, with prices ranging between £28 – £93, online and at retailers including ASOS, Topman and Harvey Nichols.
