Here we have a look at Shipley & Halmos and their Fall/Winter 2013 collection. As expected, we see some slim attire that’s wearable both casually and in more formal settings. We spied a ton of great pieces including structured blazers, well-fitting denim, henleys and much more.
Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen presented their F/W 2013 collection earlier today and not only did we get a chance to check out the label’s men’s collection, but today also marked the debut of its women’s collection. Micah looked to infuse the philosophy behind the Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen men’s line and translate it into a women’s collection. As for the men’s offerings, expect Cohen’s signature slim suiting, athletic-inspired knits and outerwear including baseball jackets and boiled wool overcoats. Taking a cue from his S/S ’13 collection, Cohen included more color than in previous fall collections, in rich autumnal colorblocking seen throughout.
Here, you’ll find all the men’s looks from the Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen F/W 2013 Presentation as well as a few of our favorite women’s looks.
Introducing Vietto, a New York-based outerwear label that looks to deliver top-notch, military-inspired product. The focus is on a refined take on classic military outerwear with infusion of hefty wool coating, laser cut horn buttons, and Vilene interfacing. Look for a hearty silhouette, staunch fabrications, and subdued color palette. What really caught our eyes about Vietto is that their pieces can appeal to both the young and old and doesn’t restrict itself to one consumer type or region. These pieces are versatile and can be applied over suiting and brogues or a denim jacket and boots.
We’re expecting Vietto to be available through fine retailers this coming fall.
Saturdays Surf NYC has teamed up with French retailer colette for a collaboration that injects Saturdays’ clean and function aesthetic with colette’s sense of whimsy playfulness. The end result is a unisex lineup comprised of accessories, printed tee shirts and board shorts, all adorning both colette’s signature blue spheres and Saturdays’ slash logo. Each piece traverses the lifestyles of a Parisian cultural insider and a dynamic New York professional with a penchant for surfing.
We’ve been fans of colette in Paris for a long time. We jumped at the opportunity to collaborate on a capsule collection for this spring. We produced a unique print based on the colors and shapes in our
brands and the Saturdays classic silhouettes.
Together the designers have created a line that is sleek and style forward, yet still suggestive of the humorous and energetic lifestyle these brands embody. The Saturdays x colette collaboration is available now exclusively at colette and Saturdays locations, as well as Saturdays online.
From the Netherlands comes Mujjo, a brand known for crafting minimalistic yet functional products. In 2012, Mujjo first began developing sleeves for Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air as well as the MacBook Pro. The brand’s The Originals collection features a unique combination of wool felt and high quality leather, and they recently added an iPad Mini Sleeve that fits seamlessly into Mujjo’s current product lineup. The folks over at Mujjo were kind enough to send us an iPad Mini sleeve for review and we’ve been quite impressed by its detailing and overall craftsmanship. It’s easy to carry and has a little extra space in a separate compartment that can fit your headphones, some folded documents or even a MiFi. The wool felt contrasts really well with the vegetable tanned leather and we can already tell the leather with age to perfection. The felt can be easily cleaned as a special treatment provides excellent anti-peeling properties and makes the sleeve water repellent. Aesthetically, it may be the best looking iPad Mini sleeve on the market and its ability to blend so well with the iPad Mini’s slim design is what makes it such a great accessory.
Mujjo’s iPad Mini Sleeve is available now in either brown or white leather.
Ronnie Fieg continues to inspire, this time dropping a capsule collection alongside one of the UK’s finest footwear makers, Grenson. The boots in the lineup utilize premium leathers Grenson hasn’t used in their line and are offered up in colorways that are classic but will still turn heads and leave a mark.
The new Spike V and Fred V are re-worked in premium waxed/burnished grey leathers while below sits a durable Vibram sole. The Spike duck boot features a two-toned design marked with its ridged toe and smooth upper body, while the Fred complements any outfit with its sleek brogue detailing. The added red leather heel spike is a welcomed detail that contrasts effortlessly with the black shells while letting people know this isn’t just an ordinary Grenson.
The Ronnie Fieg for Grenson collection is available in limited quantities through KITH.

Aether has opened the doors to their first-ever stand alone retail store, AETHERsf. Located in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley, and constructed from three 8‘ x 9.6‘ x 40’ shipping containers, AETHERsf is the brainchild of Thierry Gaugain (designer behind AETHERstream), envelope a+d, and AETHER’s founders, Jonah Smith and Palmer West. The AETHER concept store features a custom glassencased cantilevered lounge, reclaimed oak ﬂoors, and a third ﬂoor conveyor system which interacts with the customers needs on the ﬁrst ﬂoor. What’s most impressive is that all design partners were locally sourced in San Francisco.
AETHERsf will carry a wide range of men’s and women’s outerwear.
A.P.C. drops their Black Sac De Voyage carryall, one that’s understated and will work for any trip you have coming up. The treated canvas shell blends effortlessly with the leather detailing.

With PROJECT NY now in full swing, we’ve had the opportunity to connect with some phenomenal brands, one of them being Italian label Esemplare. One of the constants throughout has been their ability to take tremendous design cues and infuse them with functionality. For Fall 2013, we see a ton of extremely wearable outerwear, including one reversible puffy jacket that’s fitted with a subtle camo print as well as some dyed wool shells that are finished to perfection.
