Mihai Dan Zarug recently presented his Fall/Winter 2012 Collection as part of the Romanian Designers Show at Berlin Fashion Week. I needed to include him on this page because I think his work is beyond brilliant for so many reasons. The black leather in this collection is astoundingly tailored with such precision and edge; he has created modern, on-season looks that are androgynous, brooding, and very chic. The gorgeous, over-sized, zipped coats paired with collard shirts and cropped pants are a page out of the iconic Phillip Lim; whereas his work with leather as a medium is as brilliant as Versace. My favourite pieces would have to be those incredible leather pants that are so slick they are almost leggings! Shiny and dark, paired with those fantastic studded combat boots that I am obsessed with! This entire collection is a work of totally realized, creative vision and it is executed so brilliantly that I can't relay enough how on-point it is. A fantastic showcase.
