British designer Tim Soar showcased his menswear collection entitled “Folding Diagrams for a Spread Squash”, further elaborating ,  “A spread squash consist of pulling in (nearly) opposite directions to form a new shape within an existing base.” I love that metaphor for deconstruction, though I am not really seeing much of that in this collection. It feels like a serious throwback to something of eighties rockabilly inspired minimalism in conjunction with some novel detailing.  His years of moonlighting as a DJ and his desire to perfect the fit of menswear is displayed almost on a subconscious  level, all while exuding an effortlessly cool vibe.
