Chapter readies its menswear debut with an early
preview of the collection for A/W 2013 captured by photographer, Jimmy
Fontaine. Focused around the individual Man, Chapter’s new collection, LONE
ODYSSEY, is stylistically complex, even contradictory in design and movement
drawn together as a unified whole.
Chapter manifests a taste of importance with desire
to evoke underlying, emotional states of grandeur and visceral appeal. With an
emphasis on high-end materials that are unique, yet functional and refined, the
design is minimalistic in approach utilizing deep cimmerian hues and an
ideation of Frank Herbert’s novel, Dune.
