Francisco Van Benthum S/S 2010 Paris with Francisco Lachowski
Francisco Lachowski, who recently won the FORD Models Supermodel of the World contest in Brazil walks the runway during the Francisco Van Benthum Spring Summer show in Paris.
Benthum used ‘old school’ haute couture construction methods as a starting point and played with soft colors that together with the shapes and fabrics made a soft-futuristic collection. Backstage photography by Giovanni di Nunzio.
Francisco van Benthum
Since 2003 Francisco van Benthum is the leading force behind the luxury men’s fashion label FRANCISCO VAN BENTHUM; internationally recognized and appreciated for bringing a unique product to the market.
Van Benthum began his career in the late 90’s right after he graduated from the prestigious fashion department of the Arnhem institute for the arts. He immediately started his search in finding his vision as a menswear designer by exploring -and stretching the borders of traditional men’s fashion and playing with its codes and restrictions.
That is exactly what became his trademark; adding a contemporary twist to the classical form by re-interpretate and re-composing the outline and elements of the traditional menswear silhouette. FRANCISCO VAN BENTHUM is distributed at selected stores worldwide and at his concept store in Amsterdam.
