Ong-Oaj Pairam Autumn/Winter 2014 - Menswear Capsule Collection

This AW14 season, Ong-Oaj Pairam added a men’s capsule wardrobe to complement his womenswear collection.

Ong was inspired by Disney super villains and the markings on dangerous animals, but also kept in the mix his love of the 1950’s way of dressing.  His colour palette ranged from the toxic brights of acid yellow, oranges, blues and greens, warning us of danger, to the more subdued monochrome of blacks and greys.

 But don’t be fooled by the monochrome palette. On closer inspection this seemingly innocent stripe print shows a row of crocodiles and leopards lurking and ready to pounce.

And from afar, this print may look like dogstooth, but in reality it is a collection of silhouettes of the poison dart frog, you could say it is a 'frogstooth' pattern.. Ong also designed the suede shoes, using snakeskin print in metallic blue and gold leather on the tips.

The brightly coloured jackets were embellished with hand embroidered leopard prints in tonal shades.  Some just scattered on the collar or hemline and sleeve cuffs, whilst others covered the whole body of the jacket.
Dangerous has never looked so dapper!
