Angelos Frentzos.  

If the name doesn't sound familiar, it will (soon). The Italian brand is the label Kanye West has been rocking since he started his summer run of performances with a killer set at Bonnaroo and worn throughout the European leg of the "Yeezus Tour." Angelos Frentzos posted photos of Kanye wearing its tank top on its official Facebook page last month, calling Kanye a "sunbleached hero," which is also the title of the brand's spring/summer 2014 collection.

Angelos Frentzos, the designer, was born in Athens, Greece in 1972. He first attended the Athens School of Fine Arts and Printing Design in 1992 and started working as a prints designer for textile companies specializing in furnishing and clothing. What really kicked things off for him was a collaboration with Greek fashion designer Sophia Kokosalaki, when the two created a collection of experimental garments inspired by music.

From there, Frentzos went on to graduate in Fashion Design and Textile from the celebrated Central Saint Martins school in London in 1999. At the suggestion of a fashion talent scout, he presented his first women's collection at Milan Fashion Week just two years after graduating, officially launching his eponymous line. Frentzos finally debuted his menswear line in 2002. 

Given Frentzos' background in both clothing and printing design, it's no surprise then that his collections often feature bold prints. For spring/summer 2014, there's an extensive use of exploded color to create a new take on tie-dye. There are also smoke prints inspired by the '90s television series "Wild Palms" on things like long bombers and deconstructed/oversized parkas.

The prints carry on into the more gothic fall/winter 2014, which was inspired by elephants.
