Here are few pics from Garbstore spring/summer 2011 collection. As always, they’re releasing well cut jeans, tailored shorts, checked shirts and cool jackets. On this subject, I really appreciate the jacket on the look 7, looking like an overshirt and workear inspired. I’m still fond of their everlasting parka (pic 8). As for the rest,… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
Few months ago (perhaps 2 years ago) in a show, I stumbled across a “Harrington” stand. I was surprised to see that it actually came from brand, and a French one ! The “Harrington” was a fashion icon from my college years. At least in my mind, it was linked to punk culture and could… Read moreno validationand7 comments for this article.
I’d like to focus on the sunglasses I was wearing on the “Fisherman” series : some Persol 2979. As you can see, those sunglasses are inspired by some Wayfarer. They’re quite heavy on the nose due to their acetate construction, but that’s not bothering (don’t worry, I’m just acting for the photo). What I like… Read moreno validationand2 comments for this article.
Surfing the seersucker wave, here would be a good pick for the summer. This APC blazer is extremely well cutted, and has an awesome render. Instead of wearing some basic linen, dare this fashionable fabric, much more stylish and at least as much light. €303 from my-wardrobe.comno validationandno comment yet for this article.
I just found out about a quite recent brand : Ashley Marc Hovelle. An occasion to introduce them to you. The brand is established since 2009 and first launched an iconic t-shirt in memory of Michael Jackson (which you can find on the website below). Insipired by retro fashion, the collection only comprises tops. This… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
I’ve lastly found some ideal derbies for the season! Vanishing Elephant is a brand I’m fond of these times. And such beautiful shoes probably won’t change my mind, on the contrary! They’re classic derbies : “cognac” grain leather made with a leather sole. The kind of shoes that adds a slight chic touch in any… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
I recently came across this vintage looking bag from Billykirk, and I wanted you to find out more about it. First, let’s focus on the brand. Billykirk started designing leather goods in 1999. Their philosophy : creating top quality pieces by hand, using natural materials. Halfway between vintage and modern, this bag illustrates well what… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
I have deeply searched a tie, or a bow tie to match the Our Legacy suit I previously told you about. I’ve finally found one from Paul Smith. The tie is called the Heart because of its pattern. Contrary to appearances, hearts aren’t that visible from afar. As a matter of fact, this red color… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
Some of you might have serious doubts about buying some ready to wear suits. Don’t worry guys, this one’s from Our Legacy and the Swedish brand is a sure bet. It seems that we have some very light fabric here (51% cotton blend, 49% linen), which is ideal for spring-summer’s formal and festal activities. The… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
We have to go back in the late 90′s to understand Svensson’s origins. They created a collective about photo, graphism and journalism in Malmö, Sweden. The shop was launched in 2005, mixing art gallery and clothing, and giving birth to their own jeans brand. Today, here’s is an occasion to present their version of a… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
