The key to getting contemporary menswear right is to keep things sleek and minimal. These are both attributes that make the spring collection from Hed Mayner interesting and desirable. The designer’s story is an interesting one. Now in his twenties, he grew up in a small village near the Lebanese border and started sewing from aged 16, making his own patterns. He soon moved to Paris where he enrolled at the Institut Francais de la Mode and developed his design skills. This development has led to a passion to create authentic menswear which is reworked. Throwing off the shackles of seasons, these pieces are transient, stylish and sustainable. The main focus of the spring collection is separates, and these are impeccably tailored whether they are a sleeveless trench or a pair of loose jeans. This minimal and utilitarian approach lends itself well to spring when garments should be easy, breathable and free flowing. The colour palette is also spring friendly – largely neutral with focus on white, solid black khaki, grey and beige.
