paris: qasimi s/s 2011 men

the inspiration for qasimi's s/s 2011 - the empty quarter collection lies in the nomadic middle eastern heritage of designer khalid al qasimi who recently showed at paris fashion week. his designs have a structured classic base, are elaborated upon with borrowed detailing from the military but are tweaked delicately into urban contemporary looks. fabrics are a mixture of cool linen, cotton and hi-tech fabrics in soft earth hues, alternated by eternally cool black. and yes, gentlemen...the bandana is officially back. shown below are six qasimi looks that we particulary like. © qasimi
