Mark Kenley Domino Tan paints a picture of texture and tailoring in muscovado and chestnut browns for next season

This season, Mark Kenley Domino Tan invited guests for an artful affair at Denmark’s National Gallery. Models were framed against a backdrop of painterly works, while the fashion itself looked to the landscape paintings for inspiration. As a result, the colour palette mimics mother nature in autumn, with muscovado and chestnut browns, anthracite grey and camel offset with ivory and black.

The collection was an ineffable display of texture and tailoring. Stringent, architectural lines set against soft, organic forms, while signature styles of MKDT shift from the comfort zone of seasons' past to a more structured approach to daily dressing. For Tan himself, it is all about elevating and pushing the heritage pieces in new directions. “Why invent the wheel,” he says during his pre-show chat with Vogue Scandinavia.

As mentioned, textures set the tone for the brand’s autumn/winter 2022 collection. Weighty, oversized wool knits offer cocooning comfort, while a tiered midi skirt with ripples of linen, silk and cotton have the materials weave a playful impression. Delicate detailing in fringes and frayed hems gave the garments a handcrafted look. As always, MKDT’s sustainability lies within the timeless design, crafting a closet full of long-lasting pieces that survive season after season.
