This piece has been in the works for quite sometime now and we’re glad to see they took their time with this one. The Anorak is really well-designed as it uses a pullover construction with two way side ventilation. The magnetic front piece is fully adjustable while the shell’s made from 3XDry Cotton Linen fabric that’s soft and sturdy at the same time with some much welcomed performance from Schoeller’s 3XDry treatment in there as well.
We briefly highlighted Ben Sherman‘s latest line, Plectrum, a shortwhile back and now we’ve got full details of the collection, including looks from the label’s Fall 2011 collection. Inspiration comes from the Englishman in New York, a man that’s well-traveled, curious and eccentric. Ben Sherman dedicated much time to the crafting of these offerings as knits are made in Scotland, coats are lined with goose down and trimmed with real rabbit fur, the buttons and toggles are made from leather, horn and wood.
CREEP by Hiroshi Awai is one of the industry’s most consistent labels. We’ve covered it numerous times over the past few seasons and think Mr. Awai is doing an exceptional job with the label. The designs are creative yet still very wearable and the fit is just right. For Spring 2012, we worked with CREEP to put together a look at this week’s PROJECT show. The result was tremendous — Floral print blazer with a lightweight button down in an orange shell along with white linen pants. Look for more shots from the Toronto-based designer’s Spring 2012 in the near future.
Lad Musician’s Fall 2011 lookbook is really well done as it captures some really great imagery and sets the proper mood for the coming months. Looks like there will be a ton of essential winter pieces we’ll want to get our hands on. The designs are extremely versatile and the styling in these shots is extremely natural, making the collection even more desirable. (via 189)

Adam Kimmel’s teaming up with workwear brand Carhartt for Fall 2011 and we’re already seeing a few fine products from the line trickle on sales floors worldwide. The materials utilized and extensive detailing makes the offerings extremely desirable. This denim over shirt is a must-have for the fall as it’s lined with flannel and other cozy details.
We’ve been seeing some standout product here at PROJECT and one of the most consistent brands as of late happens to be CXXVI. They’ve really come a long way from selling just t-shirts and now house a stable of solid offerings. This burlap tote really stood out to us so we had to capture it in all its glory. It’s lined with chambray and features leather handles. In the above shot, you even get a glimpse of the brands neckwear and shirting for S/S 2012.
We originally covered Falling Whistles two years back and boy has it come a long way. It’s a nonprofit started by Sean Carasso after a trip to the war zone of the Republic of Congo. The brand and its cause have been gaining some traction as of late and we’re really impressed with what they’re offering for Spring 2012. We had the opportunity to put some of the collection’s standout pieces on models and snap away here at PROJECT.
