Menswear Clothing by Song for the Mute
Collection: Ink – Autumn/Winter Fashion 2010
Ink: Autumn & Winter Fashion Collection 2010 (Southern Hemisphere) is the first ever menswear showing by Australian label Song For The Mute. There are two fashion designers behind the label, Melvin Tanaya and Lyna Ty. Melvin is a graphic designer from Sydney, while Lyna is a Parisian-born, italian trained fashion designer.

Considering the duo both quit their full-time jobs to persue their passion on a limited budget, the overal collection for 2010 is impressive to say the least.
The debut Ink winter collection includes a solid range of clothing styles including jackets, jeans, shirts, t-shirts, pants and scarfs.The fabrics used are diverse, including organic cotton, linen, wool, viscose and even metal (the buttoned scarf is made up of 95% cotton and 5% metal!).
Song For The Mute is a menswear label that is cleary following in the foot steps of fellow Australian high-end casual themed labels such as Chronicles of Never, St Augustines Academy, Claude Maus and Beat Poet.
