Clothed in Corbu: Classy Fashion Inspired by Le Corbusier

They say style works in cycles, so it was only a matter of time before someone drew inspiration from one of architecture’s modern greats, such as Charles-Édouard Jeanneret (aka Le Corbusier).

This Corneliani 2011 Fall & Winter line for men draws both directly and abstractly on this famous Swiss designer of days gone by, nearly borrowing from his wardrobe and definitely derived in part from his broader aesthetic sensibilities.

It is hard to say for sure whether he would be flattered or flabbergasted, but given his emphasis on timelessness in buildings and art, perhaps he would see the fit to his own theories and (international) style beyond the flashy runway show.
