Asher Levine presented his Spring/Summer 2012 collection during the New York Fashion week on Saturday, September 10th 2011. A capacity audience was trilled with the show which this young designer prepared at the NY BoConcept showroom. Combinig futuristics elements with the raw street style edginess, Asher makes the men look sexy in this wearable collection, which much like designer, has become more refined and closer to a tailored subversive subtlety. And we definitelly got infected by it. Stage.118 is Asher’s fourth collection, through which the designer celebrates his continued maturity as he conceptualizes a world from which to draw inspiration. The theme of the collection builds on past motifs and established iconography and retains Levine’s affliction with exploring a biological thriller which becomes a gateway to an alternate reality where Levine can play.

Levine, a boy out of Port Charlotte, FL arrived in New York (not too long ago) to complete a degree in Managerial Entrepreneurship at Pace University, understanding that fashion, just like any other industry, is fundamentally a business. Shortly after graduating and with little over a decade of design experience, he started his eponymous label out of his basement in the West Village. It wasn’t long before his luridly edgy menswear designs took root in the community.

Consistent with his previous collections, his work wrecks havoc with the theme of organicism in fashion. The work, often heavily influenced by the natural world, not only flirts with the ideas of the visceral, but also, takes an explorative stance on the human figure and its condition. His seductive designs are in a constant state of flux between: fluidity and rigidity; beauty and disfigurement; abstraction and form; darkness and lightness.
A way to go Asher! We can’t wait to see more from you.

Another killer collection from New York menswear designer Asher Levine. We love the layering, the mixture of patterns and textures, and what’s not to love about a semi-fitted leather bikini brief? As a rule, we’re not big fans of clothing that borders on fetish wear, but this is piece is amazing — the perfect balance of fashion, fetish, and sexy.

Do Underground de Nova York às principais revistas e passarelas Asher Levine vem crescendo notavelmente e impondo sua marca e estilo, incorporando diferentes conceitos a cada coleção: orgânicos, científicos, residuais e regurgitando tudo isso através de suas criações que desmontam uma silhueta tradicional e a transforma em algo imprevisível.

Coleção Asher Levine Primavera/Verão 2011
“Eu busco inspirações todos os dias em coisas estranhas. Eu acho que é importante olhar para as coisas que estão fora da sua caixa de compreensão, como os organismos que são ampliadas em 40.000 vezes.” Asher Levine sobre sua coleção Outono Inverno 2011 em entrevista para MTV americana.

Desde os 10 anos, quando começou com aulas de costura, e mesmo quando produzia suas peças por conta própria no porão de sua casa já em Nova York, Asher Levine manteve seu estilo e especializou-se em contabilidade e marketing, de modo que hoje aos 23 anos, é considerado uma das grandes apostas dentre os novos estilistas.
Tendo adquirido também grande visibilidade através de produções exclusivas, como para Lady Gaga, onde a vestiu por duas vezes numa mesma semana, Bruno Mars, Black Eyed Peas, Scissor Sister, Mike Furey e outros.

Connu principalement pour avoir habillé la célèbre Lady Gaga, le créateur de mode Asher Levine a récemment levé le voile sur un nouveau lookbook – un mini catalogue présentant la collection Croisière 2013 de sa marque éponyme.

Pour cette série dite aussi Resort 2013, le designer est resté dans son style habituel et sa palette de couleur préférée. En effet, les silhouettes ont des allures sexy, décalées, rock, voire même punk. Et le noir domine largement cette collection où l’on remarque néanmoins des touches de rouge, de bleu et de blanc. Asher Levine a semble-t-il eu une inspiration nautique mais il n’a pas été dans l’exploitation totale de cette source puisque les looks se composent également de pièces plus classiques, plus urbaines ou plus techniques. On remarque ainsi un mélange des matières, des textures mais aussi et surtout des structures et des longueurs.

C’est en cela que réside toute l’originalité de cette collection où les chemises fluides et longues se superposent aux shorts, où les épaules sont bouffantes à l’extrême, où un imperméable ample et transparent pensé façon chemise s’associe à un pantalon ultra slim noir.
