Xander Zhou AW14

PYLOT went backstage with AOFMPRO and key make up artist Michelle Webb to witness Xander Zhou behind the scenes for his AW 14 collection. Zhou is one of our favourite menswear designers at PYLOT, as he makes work that is influenced by modern culture and formal dress. His collection last season stood out above the rest, it was clean, well cut and featured an interesting subject matter (See our coverage from Zhou’s show last season). This season however Zhou has taken a much more formal approach to his collection, swapping modern sleek cuts for regal  tailored pieces that utilised fine fabrics with varying textures.  This collection also featured relaxed tailored trousers which added a soft movement underneath the weighty garments on top. With two completely contrasting collections over the last two seasons, we can’t help but wonder what Zhou may produce next season.
