Luxurious Leather and Indulgent Jersey from Domingo Rodriguez
Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 sees Domingo Rodriquez’s second collaboration for Asos after the online retail giant picked the British designer, straight out of his MA last year to form part of their ‘Make’ initiative. The initial Domingo Rodriguez for Asos collection was such a success – the leather pieces sold out in the first day – it is no surprise that Domingo is back for a second season.
Continuing with the themes of his previous collection, Domingo was once again inspired by the infrastructure of the body and how it can inform his pattern cutting. The luxury menswear line is given a contemporary, fresh look is created by removing seams and streamlining the design – seams are enclosed in grosgrain and trousers are lined in jersey for a touch of indulgence. Leather once again features heavily in the collection – traditional fur techniques were used to add a new tactility to leather, it’s now reversible using both sides of the leather and suede.
“Its been great to explore the resources at Asos, I’m a one man label so its been fantastic to have them take a risk and support me.” – Domingo Rodriguez
