For the 2012 spring/summer collection, New York-based fashion designer Raun LaRose was inspired from his childhood as he retraces his steps back to his youth in
search of the most cherished of memories.
What comes to his mind penetrates the collection; namely, backpacks, comic books, and “thoughtful pairing” in sports attire.
In Raun’s words, “as a menswear designer I strive to expand the concept of contemporary men’s fashion through innovation.”
“To challenge myself and explore new techniques,” continues the designer, “gives fruition to one of my key looks.”
Raun identifies that look as the woven hybrid backpack with the end of a “sporty, dressy undertone.”
