Israeli Central Saint Martins’ graduate Assaf Reeb is, like all great men, a fan of male nudity. Through his designs he is questioning the normative lack of selective nudity in menswear compared to womenswear which often celebrates a peak-a-boo in the right place, and we’re not talking about ANDREW CHRISTIAN CROTCHLESS PENILE PRESENTATION PANTIES right now.
“If you were doing typography, you’d give just as much thought to the spaces between the letters, so why not do the same with clothing?”
The Peter Jensen-tutored menswear designer has already had clothing produced by Tilda Swinton favourite Pringle Of Scotland, and for his graduate collection was inspired by 20th century photographs of young male rowing teams, hoping to channel the training-wear’s naïveté and daring.
You can see the remainder of Assaf’s collection after the jump and read what he had to say of his work [which includes an upcoming project on kites] when he recently spoke to Interview Magazine.
