As we work toward another amazing Menswear Fashion Week, we took some time to talk to SCS Designs creators, Spike Clemenceau and Onyx Baily about their clothing, their approach to fashion, and Menswear Fashion Week 2013.
Menswear Fashion Week: How did SCS Designs begin?
Spike Clemenceau and Onyx Baily: It was originally thought out to provide realistic looking cowboy wear, after a shopping trip with my son, where he complained about the lack of choices out there. Given the success of the “Riata” line, the shop slowly expanded its options, from underwear to full casual outfits.
MWFW: What inspires your menswear fashions?
SC&OB: We get inspiration from all sources, but our main one would be people. The general public which gives us feedback and input on what they feel is missing in the SL menswear market.
MWFW: What makes SCS Designs unique?
SC&OB: Most of our designs are made over real fabrics, adding a realistic look to anything we make. We also strive to be original in every possible sense, but, of course, we can’t give out all of our secrets of production or we’d lose our originality.
MWFW: How did you approach the challenge of creating your Menswear Fashion Week exclusive designs this year?
SC&OB: We dove into it head first and gave it 110% to put out some of the best designs to ever come to SCS. We got inspired on the theme and made a few outfits based strictly on the concept. We also included a few original releases of our trademark outfits, to show the general public what we have to offer and where the brand is headed next, we have big plans and a few surprises in store, for example expanding our newly added accessories line.
Spike and Onyx are excited to share their designs at Menswear Fashion Week 2013, beginning on April 19th.
