Path's 'PRESENCE' expresses a rule breaking reinvention of modern menswear by presenting a radically different image of masculinity. Path's signature aesthetic reaches a new level of sophistication mixed with an individual masculine strength. The brand takes influences from both, rebellious youth cultures, music and art on the one hand and traditional menswear on the other mixed with functional details taken from sportswear to create unique, innovative pieces of high fashion. The designs are constantly looking for the now and tomorrow, the classic and the contemporary, the future and the past. Precise simplicity comes together with refined cuts, high quality of material and outstanding craftsmanship. The look presented by path is both inspired by and designed for confident individuals. Path's garments are contrastive. Serious, but never severe, meticulous but experimental, minimal but bold, soft but constructed. Path appears strong but always sensual. In typical the path style, colour was left to a minimum, with a palate of mainly neutral black, an eye-catching light green, khaki and a dark red was added to the collection. Complete with light layers, transparent shirts, modern suits and graphical monochrome prints, all seamlessly comes together as a delightful impact.

PATH is a new menswear label and the creation of the German fashion designer Janine Grosche. PATH was launched in 2011 with the debut collection for SS'11 and is based in Beijing, China. 'Static Facileness’ the collection for spring summer 2011 already shows an unmistakable handwriting. The design is characterized by contemporary minimalism, radical modernism and nonchalant elegance. PATH creates an archetype of a modern man. Sheer light fabric meets contrasting material, pursuing a new masculinity. Silhouettes of powerful shapes and volumes are delicate with simplicity. A certain fragility comes together with clean lines. Based on a monochrome palette of shades from grey to black, PATH explores proportions of varying lengths, perfect for layering. PATH transcends the line between avant-garde and wearable fashion. "The PATH collection is made for men with a certain sensibility; it is subtle, not loud. The idea was to make it pure and simple with an avant-garde twist. In ‘Static Facileness’ I wanted to create a very modern and sensitive menswear collection which expressed my interpretation of contemporary masculinity mixed with femininity through soft silhouettes. The collection is characterised by the flexibility of the material, sheer fabrics and contemporary, clean cuts. PATH pushes borders further away by creating minimalistic and sensitive fashion as a new genre for men."
