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.
