amsterdam fashion week may not be one of the most prominent, it certainly features a few interesting designers. one that has caught the keen eye of experts on more than one occasion is acclaimed korean-born hyun yeu, who presented an off-schedule show for his ado les scents s/s 2013 men's collection. inspired by a work-related visit to istanbul, yeu became intrigued by the city's hybrid cultural identity that incorporates both western elements and oriental flavours. dubbed diffusion, the collection mimicks this duality with tempting range of shapes and styles. more experimental designs are alternated by more accessible pieces while certain classical silhouettes have also been reinterpreted. the diffusion collection is predominantly white, and includes summery leather tops and shorts, slim-cut jackets and light-weight suits, captured in cotton, cool summer wool, jersey and the aforementioned leather. shown here are six looks from the ado les scents s/s 2013 collection that we particularly like.
