Who doesn’t love a good fashion show? I know I do, especially when it features some of the hottest male models wearing nothing but tiny clothes…
Last Tuesday, I was able to attend the 2xist SS15 show held at Skylight Modern where guests enjoyed a cocktail reception previous to the show… Drinks, music and hot guys wearing underwear, now that’s my kind of party!
The 2xist SS15 Collection featured an expanded offering of the brand’s signature fit underwear and swimwear in vivid, bold colors, tropical prints and geometric patterns designed with performance-inspired fabrics. I was glad to see a wide selection of modern active wear and men’s bags walking down the runway. – I’m obsessed with gym bags, and I cannot wait to get my hands on them.
A few of the pieces that stood up for me were the blueberry beach camo swim brief, the poppy red palm tree swim trunk and the marble tech white pro brief. – This last one almost looked like a pixelated image of a zebra pattern, and I’m digging it!
Before male models as Andre Ziehe, Miguel Iglesias, Saville Dorfman, Emmett Pugh and Francesco Brunetti among others made their way to the runway; I catch up with Creative Director Jason Scarlatti backstage. He told me more about his inspiration for 2xist SS15 collection.
What was the inspiration for the collection? It came from lifestyle…. We want our guys to feel their individuality and originality; therefore, we focused on bright colors and tropical prints and patterns, at the same time mixing and matching fabrics. We wanted to offer a wide range of products, so our 2xist man can wear as a wholesome individual and create his “lifestyle” whatever is right from him. Whether is going to the gym or out at night.
Describe the collection in three words. Always sexy, masculine and fashion forward.
Do you have a muse or someone that you look at when you’re designing? My muse would definitely be Andre Zeihe, who’s the campaign model and his spirit behind everything he does. He’s like a tiger, wants to go out for the world and take a bite of it. – I mean Andre is gorgeous! I wouldn’t mind staring at him all day at all.
What would be an essential piece from the collection every guy should have? Even thought we are well known for our underwear, I’m going to say an activewear look! The slim fit drop crotch pants in white (which is my favorite color) and the gray sleeveless pullover hoodie. But of course, you have to pair it with some 2xist underwear. If you wear our new line SPEED 2.0 underneath the sweatpants, you are good to go!
Do you have any tips to find the perfect pair of underwear? YES! I’ll say try e-v-e-r-y-thing, don’t stick to what you know. You should try a boxer brief, a brief to find that style you’re most comfortable in. Always go for a “contour pouch” – which 2xist is best at and we are known for. Dabble to try different fabrications and see what works for you.
On that note. I have more than 200 pairs of underwear, is that too many? How many pairs do you think a guy should have? Not at all! Oh God… I will say 20. You have to get at least through to two weeks.
Finally, what do you wear boxers, briefs or jockstraps? All of them, I love everything. I can’t discriminate. – Couldn’t agree more with you Jason! #underwearaddict
