This brand experiments on the juxtapositions in life to which the designer is drawn: masculine and feminine, light and dark, soft and harsh. Fragility yet strength is referenced using delicate romantic draping against a hard shell of tailoring. Clear lines between masculine and feminine are also absent; garments lie between the stereotypes of what is and is not appropriate for each sex to wear. This is the second collection of the menswear brand Jonathan Christopher
