ORTTU’s new line is built for the man who wants to express his innermost feelings, uniqueness, and beauty through what he wears. “Clothing has always been one of the main ways for an individual to express himself,” designer Artem Gryshchenko says. “We wanted to create apparel for men who are in touch with their individuality, their sensuality, their beauty, and – of course – their sexuality.”
Comfortable and stylish, ORTTU’s Anomalous Pants come with a simple wrap-around belt and feature front seam details, fastenable ankles, and smart side pockets.

In order to do that, Gryshchenko worked with new fabrics, including jacquard, chiffon, and lace; mixed together masculine and feminine silhouettes; and made clothes that are easy to move in. After all, life is about movement.
ORTTU’s Star Neck Shirt features unique sleeve placket details and a star-shaped neck. Show off those glutes on summer days or clubbing nights with Amsterdam Shorts, made from form-fitting faux leather.
“You’ve probably experienced buying an item of clothing that you loved the look of, but find that it’s difficult to move in,” Gryshchenko says. “We’re always thinking about movement, because we know that, psychologically, being able to move freely is a kind of liberation.”

After a year where the world was brought to a standstill, movement is more vital than ever. “I think a lot of people have realized this over the last year, that it is easy to get caught up in the drudgery of life: working too much, staying at home too much, finding ourselves in difficult relationships, and paying far too much attention to the news — and feeling depressed and angry at what we hear,” Gryshchenko says. “ORTTU is a doorway to a different world: one of joy, hope, possibilities, beauty, love, serious playfulness, and self-expression. That’s really reflected in the latest collection.”

Gryshchenko hopes men find that positivity in items like the elegant yet casual and comfortable Anomalous Pants, the stunning Kilt Belt, or the graceful Star Neck Dress.
“We push the boundaries because we want to acknowledge different possibilities and different aspects of ourselves,” says Gryshchenko, adding, “Wearing ORTTU means you’ve decided to be the best you can be today or tonight. It means that you’re going to be a little more open to the world, and love a little deeper.”
ORTTU’s Gala Long Shorts feature a wrap-around belt, back pocket, and a bold pinstripe.
Perhaps the best part about this line is its versatility. The clothes are perfect for lounging by the pool, sunset walks, making an impression at work, relaxing at home, or a formal event. “Anyone wearing ORTTU is going to stand out from the crowd,” Gryshchenko says. “But, while it’s unique, our clothing is versatile because it’s about the wearer being himself, totally unashamedly. And we think you should be able to do that everywhere.”
ORTTU’s Yoga Blue Pants are soft, stretchy jersey, in powder blue. These pants feature a wraparound belt, pleats, and elasticated hems.
