Unconditional—A Tough Bark with a Thoughtful Bite

unconditional-fall-09-1
Unconditional went for a more aggressive look for their f/w collection, with zipper and bondage details and funnel necks. While Unconditional always does hoods, this year the line featured an extreme funnel neck turning into a hood for a bit of a futuristic effect. Philip Stephens, the designer, described his side-zipped up to just below the thigh, "zippity doo dah" pants as a forgiving alternative to a skinny cut ("a lot of men have thighs!"). Having the looks made from eco-friendly materials and styled with ALDO boots gave the show an extra affordable, green spin.
