The devil is in the detail

After the success of their initial collection last year, menswear label Ma.Strum is following up with a new, extended range of clothing for spring/summer 2010.

Inspired by the archive of legendary Italian designer Massimo Osti, Ma.Strum’s jackets won many admirers in 2009 thanks to their use of high-tech fabrics and design. Those principles are extended to the latest, naval-themed collection, which has been extended to include swimwear, cargo pants, and three military carbon-coated bags.

According to the label’s creator and chief designer, Donrad Duncan: “It is a great honour to have access to Massimo Osti’s archive, and to have the opportunity to draw inspiration from the huge collection of designs, samples and futuristic fabrics that he pioneered. Experimental fabrics and unique coatings are apparent throughout the line and will be the essence of each collection moving forward.”

For 2010 these include coated lined, ‘glass cotton’ fabrics and pique-weave knits containing special temperature regulating yarns. Mark O'Brien
