Paris S2011: Petar Petrov

July 01, 2010 BY CAPSULESNEWS

For most runway shows it is customary for designers to be as dramatic as possible and show items that scream you can look but you cant touch. Bulgarian designer Petar Petrov reversed this typical tradition and produced a show that was warm and relaxed much like his ss11 line that adds a youthful, easy going flair to menswear basics. The line consisted of relaxed suits, casual light trenches, button down collard shirts, basic tees, cropped shirts, slim fit cut off shorts and relaxed pants all in solid neutrals with a few pops of color including cobalt blue, crimson and golden straw. Although the styles and cuts are fashionably edgy, the models that were beaming form ear to ear (another uncharacteristic occurrence on the runway) showed that every single piece is wearable and leaves you not only wanting to look but yearning to touch.
