Moving on from showing at MAN in London, Hans Madsen has continued to hone in on his raw edged and ever so slightly romantic take on street-influenced menswear. FAE (First Among Equals) an independent purveyor of obscure labels opened in 2006 BY Steven Taranto will give Madsen his first American debut with his A/W 09 collection. “I am inspired by clothes and what it can do to people, especially how people express themselves through clothing. A key element in my work is the study of the relationship between clothing and the wearer," explains Madsen about his finely tuned aesthetic. There will be an in store presentation of the collection this Saturday and it will be available to buy at FAE from then on.
