DESIGNER TO WATCH – THOMAS ENGEL HART

3-2.jpg1-2.jpgAfter a mere glimpse of his website,  this up and coming menswear designer’s perspective and aesthetic is immediately recognizable and most definitely intriguing. As a strong believer that menswear trends are frequently the result of last seasons most successful women swear concepts, Thomas Engel Hart’s high-waisted trousers, leather pants (Givenchy), and loosely hand knit sweaters (Rodarte) are exactly what I’m looking for right now. Having already been praised by Jefferson Hack in The Independent, this is definitely a name to watch in the world of progressive menswear. Hart, you’ve totally won mine. – Andrew Mukamal
