Creative director Sander Lak embraces romantic male sexuality with Sies Marjan's first full menswear collection.
The first full menswear collection from Sies Marjan debuted at Opéra Bastille with an ambitious objective—the excavation of a delicate, romantic male sexuality beyond carnality. For Spring 2020, creative director Sander Lak presented summer-weight clothing featuring soft tailoring and rich color interspersed with a variety of nude hues. Blushes, chocolates, and tans, inspired by skin and lip tones appeared in nearly every look, subtly keeping with the central preoccupation with male sexuality of all orientations.
Sander Lak felt compelled by the ambiguities and contradictions within contemporary male identity, intrigued by the prospect of revision: “I kept thinking of what it is like being a man today…about the important question of what masculinity is and what sex means. What if male sexuality could be elevated and made delicate instead of being about pure testosterone and sleaze?”
