Designer Firas Al Saffar of F.A.S., the elevated streetwear label from Sweden, creates his collection for conscious people, regardless of age and sex. The collection, which combines Scandinavian minimalism and influences from Southern Europe, is designed to go beyond seasons, and be timeless. Firas is committed to creating fashion with a conscience, and champions environmental sustainability, animal protection and fair trade in his manufacturing.
For AW16, look for a distinctive black swan print. “The black swan print represents me in terms of being a global person with a flexible identity to fit in, in different cultures,” Firas explains. The collection, named Identity, is inspired by global events of the year 2015. “ Many of these events made think about what defines us as persons. What defines an individual’s identity? I like to believe that it is something universe such as, heart and soul as well as our DNA. Those thoughts gave me the inspiration to the prints I’ve developed for this season,” he explains.
See the collection at Capsule New York Men's, Jan 26-28.
