"COUNTDOWN TO VIOLENCE"::NOM DE GUERRE FALL/WINTER 2010
There are clothing lines that put military themes and styles into the composition of their clothing and then there's Nom De Guerre, a line that really emulates the character of militaries and armies. Just this lookbook seems like a spread from the national geographic, maybe from a photographer capturing some type of foreign conflict. Im a huge fan of clothing with military influences because when this style is refined correctly the clothing can have the same quality, utility, and 'sleek-ness' as the uniforms worn by military officers. Nom de Guerre's muted imagery of military presence in war portrays a very contemporary and refined look. Asphalt grey and black blazers are worn with fitted cargo pants, vests and pocketed coats layer dress shirts and ties...I must also add that I am very surprised and happy to see that this designer chose to shoot so many black models.
