Drawings: Men & Style

The continued rise in men’s fashion worldwide results in the increased interest in its illustrated depiction worldwide.

The works on display at The Hospital Club during London Collections: Men showcase a series of original works by prominent illustrators. This selection is part of the upcoming exhibition Drawings: Men & Style curated by Gemma A Williams at Paul Smith, No. 9 Albemarle Street, London, starting February 2015.

The series selected highlights in particular the drawing of British menswear and the British interpretation of men’s style. From the bold and graphic to the finely detailed, these works explore their perceptions of the modern male and his engagement with fashion.

Launched to coincide with upcoming title Menswear Illustration by Richard Kilroy, published by Thames & Hudson, the book offers a definitive overview into this unique area profiling its most respected leaders and examining the works which makes them the fashion industry’s most celebrated illustrators.

Fiongal Greenlaw

Fiongal Greenlaw is a designer previously mentioned on Decoy's blog after he graduated from The Royal College of Art, London last year, where he obtained an M.A in menswear design. (see previous post here.)

This post is rather a recap of Fiongal's portfolio that has been uploaded to his site since graduating, where you can view more work. His brilliantly original illustrations hold their own strength as individual works in their own right, and not just as design idea sketches for line-ups.

Fiongal's work will feature in Menswear Illustration (Thames & Hudson), released in January, 2015.
