ROGUE began a men’s collection of updated classic outerwear with downtown influences. Built around the lifestyle of New York based designer Jimmy Reilly, the casual masculine leather and cloth outerwear collection rapidly gained prominence in top retail stores across North America. For more than a decade Rogue’s distinct identity, fit and market leadership inspired its designer to further develop the vision. In the Autumn of 2009, the scope of that vision was realized in the expansion of the brand as a contemporary men’s lifestyle collection. New categories include washed and wired woven shirts, soft comfy knits and tees, chunky sweaters, warm vests and creased slim pants. The A/W 2011 season will mark the launch of a footwear collection for the brand. READ PRESS
Audrey Szeto is an artist and designer inspired by the intrinsically unique nature of each individual. She is always fueling her curiosity through the emotional and sensory responses of personal experiences as well as the recollection of memories. Whether through texture, weight or the feeling of constriction or exposure, each piece is about the process of transforming her ideas and sharing them with another. “The Safest Way to be” is a collection of garments inspired by methods of protection and self-preservation. Whether through suggestion of aggression or ritual practice, there is a connection between the physical and psychological that affords security and empowerment to the wearer. The emotional responses of the audience additionally become part of the story, as one cannot exist without the other.
