Designer Duo to Watch: Sons of Ódin

Toronto Men’s Fashion Week made its debut this past August at the Fairmont Royal York showcasing Spring Summer 2015 collections. It’s great to see menswear finally getting a show of their own, as the interest in menswear is on the rise. While there were many fantastic designers that showcased, there is one designer duo that I am quite enthused about, Toronto-based Sons of Ódin, Zakariah Milana and Charlene Martin.

I have known Char for the last 6 years and have excitedly followed her and Zakariah’s success of Sons of Ódin over the last 2 years. Not only am I a huge fan, but since their runway debut at TOM*, there has been a ton of buzz around the pair and the strong show that they delivered.

Sons of Ódin delivered “a reinvention of the modern day man”, a collection that is edgy and noir. The S/S15 collection “Deserted” shows inspirations of:  New Orleans, the U.S. military, Marrakech, Egypt, and armour. The collection has the perfect combination of monochromatic basics, patterns (the rose and rope print-ah-mazing!), rich textures, and zipper and leather detailing. This duo hit practical ready to wear menswear bang on. I can’t wait to see this brand evolve in the years to come.
