Christopher Bates

Contemporary menswear designer Christopher Bates showcased his F/W 2015 ready-to-wear menswear collection by the same name on the runway at Toronto Men’s Fashion Week, TOM*. This will be Bates’ first collection since opening a design studio and showroom in Milan in November 2014, to expand the brand internationally. The new Christopher Bates collection is 100% designed and produced in Italy working with top quality Italian mills and manufacturers.

The Fall/Winter 2015 collection, titled Modular, was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man and is based on fundamental principles of proportion, mobility, geometry, architecture, and anatomy using exotic and rich fabrics including soft lamb suede, laser perforated denim and custom printed cotton shirting.
