As his label enters its seventh year, Berlin-based Vladimir Karaleev has a firmly established design vocabulary that’s nonetheless based on an ever-mutable pastiche of cuts, unfinished edges and unusual fabric mixes.
While the designer’s first foray into prints was the news last season, fall saw Karaleev extend his avant-garde reach to men. Those simpler looks included cuddly knits and comfy baggy pants and bombers, the latter in either a sheer fabric over white knit or a vivid plastic-mohair combo. For the more daring there were double-legged shorts over tights and a tunic-mantle hybrid.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
